Barefoot Syringa 2 in 1 Bitless Bridle

The Barefoot Bridle Syringa 2-In-1, complete with reins, can be used without a bit as a side-pull or as a bitless-bridle with crossed reins. It is also a great bridle to use for ground work or lunging.

Use as a bitless-bridle:
The bitless bridle function of the Syringa Bridle has an interesting design. More subtle than a halter, sidepull, or jumping hackamore, and infinitely less forceful than a mechanical hackamore, it works by placing pressure on the side of the horse's jaw and on the horse's nose. A strong pull from the rider will also create pressure behind the horse's ears and under the horse's chin. What makes the bridle less forceful is that the pressure is from flat straps only - not from metal bars or chains, and not from knots in the strap material. The pressure is applied to areas of the horse's head that are much less sensitive than the bars and tongue. From the rider's side of the reins, the feeling is very much like riding with a well-adjusted bridle and well-chosen bit; from the horse's side of the reins, the pressure from a bitless bridle is lighter and more gentle than the same amount of pressure used with any bit. The direction of the pressure is interesting too - and this is what makes a bitless bridle unique and effective for lateral control. When the rider applies pressure on the left rein, for example, instead of a bit pulling against the left side of the horse's mouth, the left rein acts on a strap that puts pressure against the right side of the horse's cheek and jaw. This allows the horse to bend and turn quickly and quietly in response to the rider's use of the rein, without any of the head-tossing associated with mechanical hackamores, and without the need for the rider to use a strong leading rein, as is necessary with a sidepull, jumping hackamore, or halter.

Use as a sidepull: If you want to use the Syringa Bridle as a sidepull, simply attach the reins to the rings along the nose-band and take off the leather bands which run to the throat-latch and are attached with snap-hooks. This bridle has several adjustment points and is made with a fine soft leather with soft rope.

Ordering Note(s): The Barefoot Syringa Bridle comes with matching reins in a leather-rope combination with snap-hooks.

Reviewer: brooks from Littleton, CO United States  
Excellent quality, however the full size was much too large for my 15.3 hand QH/Appy mix.
