I am just starting out with my OTTB in dressage. We are currently using a slow twist D ring bit and a hunt type bridle. The previous owner used this bit with my horse and he does fine with it. He has avery light mouth. I just bought a dresssage saddle and am now in search of the proper dressage bridle. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
Dressage bridles are black, can have a flash noseband or not, and white or black (I've even seen baby blue) are acceptable for padding along the poll and under the chin. Other than that, it's mostly down to personal preferance.
^These are acceptable snaffles for dressage; you'll have to go with a smooth mouthpiece.
You're aware that you'll have to ditch the slow twist if you plan on showing dressage right? Anyway, what is your price range?
i am aware I willneeda different bit for showing. I think I will do it sooner rather than later. I was not sure about a flash or not. I am not sure about a price range. I just to get the proper bit and bridle the first time. Thanks so much.
