Another Update, more pictures and details.

Here are some pictures of my more refined prototypes, done using a triple braided poly rope. This version comes with attached loop reins that have added training knots for added texture to aid in teaching neck reining. I apologize for the quality of the pictures (as well as the model, lol) but I wanted to get something more up and the weather here is still rainy and overcast. Hopefully these pictures will give a better understanding of the bridle.



Below: Exaggerated no contact on rein straps. Here you can see how the rein straps work independently from the chin & throat straps. The only interaction between the two is that the rein straps are held in the correct position on the outside of the cheek by the jaw strap.



Below: view of underside with reins making light even contact.



Below: I placed a sheet between the chin straps and the rein straps to illustrate their function.






Below: The connection on the reins between the rein strap that connects directly to the bridle and the reins.


Below: The Rydem's equivlelnt to the buckle on an English pair of reins.



The reins shown in the above pictures are not detachable. My next post will show the other design that I'm working on which will allow the rider to attach the reins of their chioce.

As always I accept custom requests.

Very neat! How much do you charge? I'm following this thread with great interest.
My only concern is that if the rider had a fall which led to the reins coming over the head, the rope wouldn't break, so if the horse trod on the reins, I'd be worried about the jaw. Perhaps a safety knot in case this happens? That has been my major concern with non-leather cross under designs. I am very much with Kevinshorses as I've told you! I'm really not a fan of the bitless craze, but your design has me intrigued!

Charis! There you are, lol I think you should take a look at the contest thread I posted ;) ;)

I have a similar concern and am working on a model that you can clip reins of your choice to. Will have to look up a safety knot, as I'm not familliar with them.

Very cool! I messaged you! Thanks so much :) I'm thrilled!
Perhaps a bit of leather on the rein attachment? Or leather on the reins themselves? That way the attachment would break, but not your bridle?

ETA- love the name!

No, it is not the same one, but it is close.

Mine offers the built in halter feature to attach a lead to.

The rein straps on mine are stabilized to prevent over tightening on the poll or nose.

Mine is also a bit more streamlined in the fact that it does not tie on like a regular rope halter, leaving no extra cord flopping on the side of the horses face.

Finally if you look closley on the one linked above te rein straps are attached via a metal ring, which may or may not rust, break or wear out over time.

Close but not quite the same. I will say that I DO like the noseband!
