The Dover Saddlery Premier Hunter Bridle is thoughtfully designed with clean lines for the show ring and exceptional comfort for the horse. This raised, padded, fancy-stitched bridle has an integrated, padded crown that is contoured around the ears, yet retains the traditional hunter bridle look. Handcrafted to exact specifications by one of the world’s best bridle makers, this hunter bridle features premium quality Wickett & Craig American leather. Understated, slightly rounded buckles show a bit of European influence. Chin is discreetly padded under the buckle. Noseband adjusts on both sides for a better fit. 1/2" cheeks. Includes laced reins.

For a properly fitted bridle, a caveson noseband should sit just below the horse's cheekbones - generally no more than the width of 2 fingers from the bottom of the cheekbone to the top of the noseband (this does not apply to drop or figure 8 nosebands). Figure 8 nosebands should sit above the bottom of the cheek bone only if they have a ring that allows movement connecting the noseband to the cheek piece. The browband should never be gaping or flopping. Click Here for more information and examples.

Properly adjusted cheek pieces will cause the bit to create two gentle wrinkles at the corner of the mouth on each side. Cheek piece buckles should generally be at the level of a horse's eye, and on a bridle that fits a horse's head very well, all buckles will generally be at the same level as each other. These cheek piece guidelines are just a suggestion, as finding a perfect fit on all horses is near impossible. Multiple holes are given on cheek pieces to allow for vast adjustment. Keep in mind that the proper position of the bit is a priority over buckle placement. Click Here for more information and examples.

Some horses can be difficult to fit in a stock size bridle. For this reason, additional bridle pieces can be bought in a variety of sizes and it is never a problem to mix and match sizes of individual pieces to get the proper fit.
