Bridle Fitting

It is absolutely essential that your horse's bridle fits properly and we would certainly recommend seeking professional advice if you have any doubts about getting it right. An incorrectly fitting bridle will cause pressure points and may lead to behavioural problems, such as head shaking. We hope you find the video below useful!

 
As a general rule, a bridle that fits your horse properly will have the side buckles level with the eyes when adjusted to the middle holes, leaving spare holes for adjustment larger or smaller. In addition, the browband should sit comfortably without either forcing the headpiece to pinch the ears or falling forward and leaving an unsightly gap. The headpiece itself divides to form the throatlash and this division or split should not be seen either above the browband or too far below it. Ideally, the split should sit behind the browband.

The noseband should also sit comfortably but with sufficient room to fit two small fingers or your thumb underneath. Any tighter and the noseband may cause pinching, which over time can lead to behavioural problems.

The head and cheekpieces must not be too tight but, equally, they will need to be adjusted to ensure that the noseband does not slip forward. Be aware also that too much extra strap hanging loose from the noseband can look untidy and so it is important to ensure that you have the correct size of noseband.

Adjustment of the throatlash is often overlooked but it is very important that this is done right to ensure that the horse has freedom of movement in his or her head and it should be possible to put four fingers in behind the throatlash when it is done up. Anything less is simply too tight.

Whatever type of bit you choose, it should sit comfortably in your horse's mouth and it is very important to ensure that it is not pinching. The bridle cheekpieces should be buckled to the middle holes as well. Watch out for our forthcoming feature on bits and their fitting!

Choice of reins and their length is very much a personal decision but it is very important to ensure that the reins are not too short, leaving your horse room to stretch.

Whatever type of bridle you choose, it is important that it fits your horse correctly. However, it is equally important that the bridle itself is suitable for the type of horse that you are riding. We will be featuring the different types of bridle available and highlighting their specific purposes in a forthcoming series, beginning with the Hackamore or bitless bridle so do look out for this.
