A correctly fitted bridle which allows good clearance around the horses ears will be comfortable for the horse.

Their are 4 main types of noseband, flash, drop, grackle and cavesson.

Each of these nosebands distribute pressure across the horses face differently. We advise you speak to your riding instructor who has experience in the way your horse goes to help you choose which noseband would work best.

Strong horses require evaluation by either your riding instructor or a bitting specialist. We first need to establish why they are strong as it can be just for certain activities they find exciting, some require schooling whereas others can be strong due to the tack you are using.
