What bridle is this?
Hello! Anyone got an idea what bridle is this and what's really ''holding the bit''?
Looks like the bridle is photoshopped out to me... Otherwise, it looks like a loop of leather through the mouth and I can't see how that would allow for good communication since it would have to be pretty tight to not fall out of the mouth with nothing holding it up.
I've never seen this before.. I'd imagine the rider's pressure on the bit is what keeps it in place.. Looks uncomfortable :shock:
I'd think photo shopped but it looks as if the bit's maybe held in place by a leather strap around the back of the jaw?
Looks to me like it's a leather or rubber loop that creates a bit & a too tight chin strap. Never seen one.
Doesn't look like anything is "holding" the bit in the mouth but her hanging on the mouth contact.
Thankfully, the bit resembles a rubber "dog bone" bit...at least sort of "soft" and "forgiving", but not used in those hands often!
I've seen people ride like this before or completely brideless and literally bitless...when done it was beautiful. Talk about communication!
It was a reining demonstration. I know the horse was ridden by Stacy Westfall at Congress in 2011...not only bridleless but no saddle either.
Wow, that is really interesting. Pretty neat. Thanks for finding the video, verona1016.
Yes, it's not photoshopped and it's Luciana, she jumps for my country (portugal) and I've always wondered about the type of bridle she uses, it's really interesting!
