Product ID: CON-BRID-WELL
Barefoot has designed the Contour bridle in such a way, that it spares the atlas, avoiding the application of any pressure. The most sensitive area behind the horse’s ear, the atlas is where the nuchal ligament attaches which is responsible for the whole chain of movements of the back. Additionally here the head joins with the cervical spine, with the foramen magnum connecting the brain with the medulla. Too much pressure here can cause an inflammation of the nuchal ligament’s onset, causing the horse to be in tremendous pain. The poll area of the Contour is shaped so that no pressure is applied to that delicate spot behind the ears. The browband and the noseband are shaped anatomically as well: The noseband is shaped upwards along the bridge of nose so breathing is not restricted. It is a 2-in-1: The bridle can be used with or without a snaffle bit. The cheek piece can easily be removed or attached thanks to a Chicago-screw. The brow-band as well as poll- and nose-band are padded softly completely, including the area of buckles and around the ears. A flash noseband has been omitted completely. FEATURES:
• Shaped headpiece takes pressure off the nuchal ligament attachment.
• Horse friendly shaped nose- and browband.
• Soft padding.
• Can be used with or without a snaffle bit.
• Applied for patent.
