Faja- this is a sash used by huasos to offer lower back support and a trimmer appearance.


Falcón- this is a sword-like knife that gauchos typically carry tucked in behind the back portion of their belts.


Freio de Ouro- the National Reining 5-event competition held yearly in Brazil.


Frena de pata choca- this is a Chilean O-Ring bit design that incorporate a stopper that limits the extension of the curb ring and, in turn, the pressure against the palate. 


Frena de dos tiros- other bits that are referred to as “de dos tiros” (double pull) offer two possible placements for the reins. These have an additional one-inch pin that dangles from the ends of the mouthpiece with a small ring where the reins can also be attached. This minimal extension offers a little leverage that can be used on the port of the Chilean spade bit.


Frena de un solo tiro- all Chilean bits have a ring at the end of the mouthpiece that is attached directly to the reins. When this is the only option, they are called “de un solo tiro” (single pull), since this refers to having just one possible attachment for the reins with no leverage.


Frenati- this is a term used to describe the early southern Iberian horses, because they were controlled with bits as opposed to the north African system of tapping the horses on the neck and shoulder with light sticks to signal the desired commands.


Frisos- decorative metal trim on the wooden box stirrups of the Peruvian saddle that has the function of protecting the stirrup from being damaged.
