The noseband should be about 2" BELOW the cheek bones. His noseband is right up against them.

Yes, I said that the bridle fit well, but the bit was too tight. I agree, it's one of my pet peeves as well, but it was a good photo for how the caveson should sit and where the buckles should be on the side.

ShowJumpLife's bridle does NOT fit well. It's adjusted fine and not too loose or too tight, but the the buckles are all up on the last hole, which is a sign of a bridle that's too big for the horse and not good form in the show ring. And her caveson is most definitely too high up on the face. It's right up against the cheek bones. The proper location is 2 fingers, or 1-2" below the cheek bones. Her bit is also too big, half way out of the mouth on one side.

Here is my daughter on my mare, bridle properly fitted and positioned, with a well fitting bit. The noseband could be down one more hole, but we weren't at a show here .


This was a spring/easter photo shoot. I don't normally let her ride without a helmet in a dress and sandals, lol.

About oiling new tack...you may have gotten into trouble with the oil not penetrating the leather because of the waxy coating almost all new tack has. I was instructed to remove the waxy coat before oiling for the first time. You do this with a sponge and warm water with a little ammonia mixed in. You will be surprised to find how important this step is. Unless you do it first, the oil tends to sit and not soak in...could be why it stained your clothes... (Be sure to let the tack dry thoroughly before oiling.)
