I've always heard not to use bit keepers on the Fulmer. No reason was given. In truth, it would depend on the alignment of the mouthpiece, just like a regular full cheek (they are not all designed to be used with keepers, either). Just keep in mind that, if you don't use the keepers, the arm can get hooked on things and cause big accidents. Prevention and awareness are key!
Nooo, I have one on my pony with no keepers - it's fine, just don't let it get hooked on anything!! And for reference - it REALLY pokes hard if your horse is kinda bolshy, so watch yourself! :) Posted via Mobile Device
