The LightRider Bitless Bridle English in Deluxe Biothane
Unique Chinstrap: The purpose of the soft webbing chin strap is to help the noseband stay in place when pressure is applied to the reins - this keeps the noseband from twisting around. The chinstrap becomes snug and does not over-tighten so this bridle is usually well accepted by sensitive horses. The bridle can also be used like a straight sidepull by clipping the chinstrap and noseband rings together (recommended if your horse hasn't experienced a chinstrap before).
Deluxe Beta Biothane is genuine USA Beta Biothane with with the bridle being manufactured in Australia, with additional stitching on the head piece. All other bridle details are exactly the same.
- Padded noseband, headpiece and brow band offers more comfort for your horse
- Soft webbing adjustable chinstrap that releases for comfort and reward.
- The noseband sits higher than most bitless bridles and does not need to be tight, allowing the horse to eat and drink.
- Designed for leading your horse too, or the lead ring and strap can be removed for ridden show classes. Also great for showing in led classes without a bit.
