The Gentle bridle is designed to fit based on the anatomy of the individual horse through its unique bilateral three ring adjustment system – this means the bridle will find the most natural place to sit on your horse/pony’s head decreasing pressure on the sensitive areas. The hinge brow band and noseband fit around the shape of the skull making it stable while retaining the look of a conventional bridle. All points in contact with the horse have been padded and all fittings allow bilateral adjustment for maximum comfort. The placing of the bridle avoids as far as possible the superficial branches of the trigeminal nerve, the stimulation of these nerves has been associated with some forms of headshaking. The bridle is hand made in top quality Sedgewick leather in England and is offered with patent noseband and/or brow band. When you order a Gentle bridle four parts must be ordered, head piece, brow band, noseband and cheek pieces. These can varied in sizes appropriate to the shape of your horse/pony, this flexibility allows you at achieve the best fit possible. The Gentle bridle is designed to give your horse the best possible experience of wearing a FEI approved competition legal bridle.
