One of the most thoughtfully designed figure-8 bridles available, the Vespucci Fancy-Stitched Raised Figure-8 Bridle protects against rubbing and pinching. Figure-8 center is padded for comfort, and leather paddles behind the side rings help prevent pinching and chafing. The oblong shape of the rings holds the noseband in place and distributes pressure more evenly. Made from top-quality English leather with superior workmanship throughout. Fancy stitch detail for that added appeal. Reins sold separately.

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.
For a bridle size chart, please refer to the "Size Guide" link that appears on the product page.
|As Peter Menet's Amerigo saddles redefined how the rider sits on a horse, Vespucci bridles take into consideration the biomechanics of a horse in motion. Following an anatomical study of veins, arteries and soft tissue areas of the horse's head, Menet concluded that traditional bridles can inflict pain and impede performance. Vespucci bridles are engineered to alleviate pressure on sensitive areas of the poll, chin, cheeks and nose bridge. Crafted from top quality English leather, they are unrivaled in comfort and performance.|
