Okay, so I'm looking at bridles for Aires (will probably wait to get a good one until after he stops growing...but we can dream right now! Lol) and am wondering about some differences in English bridles.
What is the difference between a figure-eight bridle and a regular bridle with a cavesson? I'm assuming the difference is functional, rather than just cosmetic (as the flash bridle is functionally different than a regular cavesson), but what is the difference/purpose?
