So, I loooveee bridles, I have actually lost count of how many I have
But I see a lot of negativity about the crank noseband (sometimes called a swedish cavesson).
I know that people say that it is too tight, and of course- tightening the noseband to keep the mouth closed is not really ideal (putting it mildly).
However, I find that the crank nosebands are, like any noseband- only as tight as you make them, and therefore have a hard time seeing the negativity behind it.
I'd really like to hear some thoughts or facts that people have around this- and perhaps help me understand said negativity ^.^
