I was wondering if anyone does it this way, my way, or a different way and why they do it that particular way. Thanks!
Leaving the noseband buckled is fairly common in Riding Schools, I've found.

Like everyone else says, there's no real reason for it. Unless it's on a small child's pony and the buckle's particularly stiff :)

Part of your horse's training is to develop patience. If my horse doesn't stand for anything done while grooming or tacking up, then we put that on the list to retrain.
I suggest bridling often, on and off, and taking more time to do it. I also put my bridles on with an unbuckled caveson, throat latch and undone curb chain.

Sorry for answering so late...
No, the bridle had no flash, it was just a normal nose band (pick below) Courbette Saddlery Company, Inc. Hunter/Jumper Bridles
Thanks for all of your answers, I was simply wondering because I'd never seen this done.

Wait people actually unbuckle those things every time? I was never taught to unbuckle a noseband because it's not tight. I have never even seen anyone unbuckle one, even at shows.

LOL, I never unbuckle mine if I am putting a horses regular bridle on, the nose band isn't tight so it just slips on and off without issue. The only time I undo it is when I am putting a a bridle that I usually don't use on that horse, then I put it on undone, so I can do it up at the right hole for that horse.

Maybe lazy, or time saving or whatever, but I can't see any reason why you NEED to undo it every time.
