    Sue Carson Saddles comfort bridle


    This revolutionary designed comfort bridle incorporating all of the features that Sue has found, as a rider and trainer, to be beneficial to horses. The bridle is made to measure in England from top quality leather to suit your horse’s sizing and your preferred colour combinations. The bridle features a padded headpiece that helps to reduce poll pressure and resistance. In addition to this the noseband sliphead threads over the headpiece. The bridle also has a long headpiece so that the browband doesn’t pinch, buckles on both ends of the throatlash to maximise its adjustability and a concealed flash fixing inside of the noseband. This is easily adapted to a double bridle. A choice of reins are available.
