Double Noseband

So I saw this a while back, and I thought I'd share
Dyon - chaps et bridons
Experience? Thoughts?
My first thought would be that it would only be useful to crank the horses mouth shut in order to 'fix' mouth opening, rather than real training. However, I have never used it personally, and I thought it would be interesting to hear what people have to say :)

I have never used one, but I saw this in a jumping show one time last year and i asked her what the part was for and she told me he fights too much on the bit so she uses it to 1. close his mouth 2. for support really. I don't think i would ever need one for my horses

I wouldn't consider that a double noseband. It looks more like a noseband and a flash setup.

I think it looks like a cavesson and drop noseband set-up.

If you read the description it is somewhat of an in between of a cavesson and drop noseband.

However considering drop nosebands are not designed to be tight because of the sensitive areas they sit on (the tip of the nose which can easily be broken) I am very, very skeptical. I think a Micklem bridle is way safer and more applicable. I would not put on of these "double nosebands" adjusted tightly on any horse, same with how I would never overtighten a drop noseband... it's just dangerous and stupid.

The only thing innovative about it is saving one headpiece-worth of leather - it's basically a drop and cavesson as others have said. That combination was popular with showjumpers in the 1960s - the cavesson was needed to attach a standing martingale.
