Micklem Bridle... Yes or No?
So I am looking to buy my mare a new bridle, only reason being that her old one is ancient!
She currently wears a plain cavesson bridle and I was planning to stay with this. However, I walked into the tack shop and saw the micklem bridle and really liked the idea of the shape and comfort for the horse. It is also around the price I was hoping to spend.
But I am nervous about changing her bridle, as at the mo she doesn't have a flash. I am hoping to begin to get in her an outline in the coming months as she has reached that stage. She doesn't have any particular problems, she can sometimes carry her head a bit too high but it is really improving over time. Really just wanted to get some opinions of this bridle? Does it prove to be as good as the advertising says it is? And how well does your horse go in it, compared to a normal bridle? Should I just stick with a cavesson which she is already going well in?
Thank you! Any advice or experience will be greatly appreciated!
