English Hunter Jumper Bridle
Regular price $226.60
What if you could take a beautiful English bridle and savvy it up? That’s exactly what Linda Parelli did. So, how would a bridle do that? Here’s Linda, to tell you in her own words: “I love the look of an English Bridle, noseband and all. What I don’t like is strapping the horse’s mouth tightly shut (it’s against the FEI rules, anyway!). There are only so many ways a horse can express his pleasure or displeasure with our ‘feel', and opening his mouth is one of them. That’s why I wanted to have a noseband that would fit snugly, but not restrict the horse’s mouth – so I put elastic in there! There are two kinds, I call them ‘FLEXI’ and ‘COMFI’, because there is a lot of elastic in them. Now I’ve got the look I want and my horses have the comfort they need. They can even chew and graze in it. I also love a bit of bling on the browbands – I’ve collected about 12 over the last couple of years, but I never change them out, because it’s too hard! It’s such an ordeal to unbuckle all those buckles, and fiddle and re-buckle again. So they all sit in the box, unused. In designing this bridle, I thought about putting a snap on the browbands so I could change them as often as I wanted or felt like. A girl cannot have enough bling… we get bored with the same look, day in and day out! With the snap-on browbands, I can easily change to whatever I feel like!” What’s Great About This Bridle Beautiful Italian leather • Snap on, quick-change leather browbands with bling • Padded crown • Ear-contoured design • Buckles on each side to ensure symmetrical adjustments • Elastic inserts in the noseband (allowing for comfort and stretch while minimizing restriction) • Slip and Grip Reins (featuring fine grain material on the inner surface, improving your grip as needed, while also allowing for smooth releases). What To Do? • Choose your bridle size (see instruction video in our webshop) • Choose any additional bling browbands (your bridle comes with a standard straight black band) • Place your order • Get excited when the box arrives and you get to PLAY!
