Whatever kind of riding you do, it's essential that your horse feels good. And it's the raison d'etre for our team of horseback riding enthusiasts. The 580 bridle therefore keeps your horse's comfort in mind: with its ergonomic headpiece, protective pads, and calfskin padding on the headpiece and nose band, it reduces pressure on your horse's neck and face.
Ease of use
The 580 bridle is designed to meet the needs of as many riders as possible and has a few tricks up its sleeve. Thanks to its roller buckles, it is very fast to adjust. The carabiner on the throatlash saves time while the cheekpieces come in different sizes so it's easy to put on and take off! Adjust your tack quickly so you can spend more time with your horse.
The 580 bridle has been designed to easily and naturally adapt to fit your horse's head, no matter the model or size chosen. The ergonomic headpiece hugs its neck and puts less pressure on it. The D-shaped buckles let the noseband adapt to your horse's head and won't pull on the bridle's cheekpieces. And because every horse is different, the V-shaped brow band keeps them comfortable no matter their head shape.
The 580 bridle is available in several versions: it responds perfectly to riders' needs, whatever kind of riding they do. Are you more of a showjumper? Go for the topstitched or glossy model. Fans of dressage should definitely go for the rhinestone version, with its wide noseband. The 580's lines, design, and materials are suitable for both training and competing! Comfort AND style!
The 580 bridle is made mainly from premium quality buffalo leather, which is very durable and easy to clean. To take care of your equipment, clean it regularly with glycerin soap and remember to rub in a bit of leather balm from time to time!
How to adjust your bridle:
For a well-adjusted bridle, the bit should be in contact with the corners of the horse's mouth without pressing against them. The two cheekpieces should be adjusted symmetrically and the throatlash should not press the horse's throat: you should be able to slip your hand between the throat and the bridle. If you're uncertain about anything, ask your coach for help!
A well-adjusted noseband:
The noseband can be adjusted in different ways depending on your horse's temperament, how sensitive its mouth is, and how steady your hand is. In all cases, this part of the bridle should be adapted to your horse's body shape so that it can maintain a relaxed position as it works. If you have any doubts about how to adjust it, seek professional help. A flash is not always necessary and the one on the 580 can easily be removed.
The 580 bridle comes in three sizes*:
PS (pony: less than 13.5 hh), CS (small horse: 13.5 to 15.5 hh) and FS (horse: more than 15.5 hh).
*These heights at the withers are an indication only and can vary depending on the breed and body shape of each horse.
