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).
- 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.
Colours: Black Regular Leather.
Sizes:Cob - usually (fits 13.2hh-14.3hh/132cm to 152cm).
LightRider Bridles recommend you use scissor rein clips for easy change over to the leading ring which enables groundwork/leading/lunging, or buy LightRider reins with clips included to have the correctly weighted reins designed for maximum chinstrap release.
