Throat Latch Issue

Hey everyone,
I just got a new Sufolkk dressage bridle and I was just putting it together and the throat latch is on the right (the buckle part). Is this normal or is there a problem with the bridle?
Thanks

Does it have two buckles?

Other wise I am guessing you put it together backwards. (Which is not hard to do.)

It is a very common mistake. Very easy to do. No reason to feel like an idiot at all.

It is tricky getting a brow band on the first many times you do it. Messing the brow band up can easily make you put the whole thing together backwards.

That is why I am so thankfull to buy pre-put together bridles and that my throatlashes are attatched to the rest of my good bridles.

Mitchells bridle has two buckles for the throatlash, which I have never seen before.

-This is completely random but this thread reminded me of it.. I went to put a bridle on bubbles one day and she stepped backwards, took the bridle with her and packed a hissy and pulled the bridle off and left it on the ground. I got it on eventually and rode and jumped her, got off and went to undo the throatlash and realised it wasn't there... She had pulled it out when she ripped it off and I hadn't even realised :L It was sitting in the grass where she had left her bridle. *HeadDesk

You have to take them apart to clean them thoroughly though.

Yeah, I do take them apart to clean them, but because I buy them pre-assembled I just take real care to lay them out in an obvious way so I can't put it together backwards... Oh how I love huge pieces of newspaper that everything fits on in order
