I recently bought a custom made side pull for Flop...we usually just ride in a halter with reins attached to the sides but I felt it was kinda tacky and so I just bought a side pull.
Now, I put the noseband in the same spot it goes when she has her halter on, but I've seen people who use Dr.Cooks bitless bridles who put the noseband a few inches away from the top of the mouth. I'm not sure if it makes any difference because the DC has a cross under action or not? I always felt like that was way too low for the noseband to be. But I just put my sidepulls noseband right where her halters noseband would fit and it was fine. I just wanted to make sure that I'm doing this right so I don't look like a moron.
Here's a picture of it today. To me it looks like the noseband could *maybe* go down a bit but opinions are welcome of course!
