When your bridle is the right height for your saddle, set right and cleaned and conditioned, it will be an auxiliary for your ride. These are some easy ways to set a bridle fence on your saddle. For help to determine the height of your horses, read our article How to take measurements for a bridle and How to take measurements for a set of teeth.
Your headband should be slightly above your horse's head, about 1 to 1 inches below the front of his ear. Make sure that the headband is long enough not to draw the crown piece into your horse's ear. The other way around, if it protrudes, creates a space in front of the horse's head or wobbles when the headband is too long.
Whenever you want a new look for your bridle, or if your horse's bridle matches, you can change your headband, but you want a different headband. Set the nose strap. There is a slight variation in the position and shape of the nose strap, according to the model used. Under the cheekbones of the horses, a normal nose strap or cavesson should be about 1 to 1 inches high.
For general guidance, you can use the width of a single hand to determine the distance from the underside of the cheek bone to the tip of the thong. Fingers wide between the end of the horse's cheekbones and the nose strap. Several nosebelts are supplied with integral straps that adapt to both sides of the horse's face.
Strap the coat hanger on the horse's cheek with this kind of nosebelt into the same opening on each side. When properly placed, the nosepiece does not disturb the motion of the teeth ring, pinches the lip or presses on the horses mouth tissues so that the horse's breath is obstructed.
They should be able to place a thumb in the nose strap below the mandible, and yet it should be tight enough to avoid fluttering while driving. Insert a hand into the nose band to make sure it is not too tight. Flash-nosebelt: You should place the part of the nose strap called caveon directly under the cheekbones without stress.
In this case, the lightning cap lies on the bridge of the nostril and does not push on the tender tissues of the horse's nostrils. Lightning should extend conveniently over the horse's jaw in front of the teeth. A lot of respondents place the lightning so that the clasp is near the lightning strap and not on the fabric near the lip.
You can position the holder for the strobe so that it does not strain the superficial area. The flashing head is on the nose bones. Do not place it too tightly and in front of the teeth, but not where it can squeeze the holes in the nose. The lightning holders are placed so that they do not squeeze the horse's mouth.
Cheek band or crank nose strap: You should place the part of the nose strap called caveon directly under the cheekbone without stress. This kind of nose strap is cushioned and shaped so that it can be stretched according to the horse's needs. Knuckle system allows you to tighten with even force on both sides of the nose strap.
When the cheek band is equipped with a lightning bolt, it should be fixed like a nose band. Fig. 8 Noseband: These nosebelts must be correctly positioned to be efficient and not obstruct the horse's breath. Lower belt extends over the horse's mouth in front of the teeth.
You can place the top belt directly under the cheek bones or above the cheek bones, according to the kind of Figure 8 used and the driver's preferences. When attaching the belts shown in Figure 8 to metallic bands, many horsemen place the bands on the cheek bones so that they do not push against the end of the horse's cheek bone.
When it is placed at the end of the cheek bone, the ring can be uncomfortable. When Figure 8 does not use metallic circles, but has movable lether chutes, many horsemen place the top belt directly under the horse's cheek bone. You can adjust a nose belt from Figure 8 without metallic bands below the cheek bones.
Let the nosebands fall: These nosebands should be placed on the osseous part of the nostril, about four fingers wide above the holes in the area. Do not allow the ring fixed to the part of the chinstrap of the nosebelt to come into direct touch with the teeth. Pay particular attention that this kind of nosebands do not impair the horse's respiration after kinking.
Whenever you have a question about how a particular type of nose strap could affect your saddle, always contact a coach or a professional breeder. Set the throat. Use the laryngeal bottle to hold the balance in place while driving. The throat may not be able to fulfil its functions if it is set too loose.
When strapped too tight, it can hinder the horse's respiration. Adjustment of the laryngeal locking system.5 Adjustment of the kerb stone necklace if necessary. When using a piece with a kerb link, set the kerb link and twist all bends in the link so that it lies flush against the horse's jaws when the piece is moving.
The general rule is to attach the necklace so long that you can place two of your finger between the necklace and your horse's throat. These guidelines must be adapted to the needs of your equine. They are all different; some favour a higher or lower bitset.
If you follow the instructions for adjusting the jaws contained in this section, you should consider your horse's preference. Monitor your horse's behaviour and reaction to the teeth and make appropriate adaptations. In the ideal case, when your crown and cheeks together are an appropriate size, the buckle of each cheeks part is about 1 to 1.72 inch above your horse's eyes, and you can use the same hole on both sides of your horse's face so that the buckle is evenly placed.
Also, you should have at least one additional opening over the buckle if the skin expands over the course of a period of time and you need to cut the cheeks or lift them later. When the crown and/or cheeks are too long for your animal, you may not be able to set the dentition in your horse's muzzle.
If it hangs too deep in your horse's jaws, it could clink its own teeths and become an ineffectual help. A bridle with cheeks in piston sizes is necessary for some of our ponies in order to get a good fitting. When the crown and cheeks are too small, the dentition can be pulled too high in the horse's jaws, which can lead to uneasiness or behavioural problems.
Tip: If you subsequently replace the tool, tool ring sizes of different sizes may need to be adjusted.
