- - Raised Bridles? (http://www.horseforum.com/horse-tack-equipment/raised-bridles-40296/)
im just curious, as ive never heard of a raised bridle lol !
So someone fill me in ?
First off some questions
What is their purpose?
What effects does it have on the horse?
Pros and cons?
What is the difference of a raised bridle to a non raised bridle ?
They're just different designs of leather for the bridles.
For example, here is a plain flat hunt bridle:
Here is a raised leather bridle:
Can you see the difference? The plain flat hunt bridle is just flat leather. The raised bridle has a bit more depth to it, it's a little fancier.
Generally speaking, most competition bridles are raised leather. It's fancier, and showier. There is no advantage one way or the other (that I am aware of) other than the look.
Hope that helped!
^ LOL okay, i never really actually thought that it had anything to do with the look !
i do like the way they are though :P
Thank you !
oo thanks for posting this question!! haha i jsut learned soemthing today!
depending on the competition in aus its fairly common to see flats particularly in the showring with weymouths- i personally like the raised and stitched variety or rolled leather
Both of my bridles are raised leather, I find that the raised leather feels a little softer/less likely to rub against their heads because of the padding and the edges are rounded instead of flat, but that's just my opinion. I bought them mainly for style, because there is no significant difference between a standard and a raised in terms of utility. They are also commonly called rolled leather or padded bridles.
Where I live (NSW, Australia), flat leather is the most popular in the hack ring. But the noseband isn't as wide. I think its because its meant to be low key and show off the horse.
I personally think a flat leather bridle can be stunning on the right horse, but for most of them it just looks really plain.
Rolled, padded and raised are not the same thing.
A raised bridle can have padding or not. A non-padded, raised bridle is simply called "Plain Raised"
If it has padding, it's a "Padded Raised" or "Raised Padded" .. whatever.
(The white is padding, it demonstrates the point best, and the leather is raised.)
A Rolled leather bridle is this:
ew at the last bridle! haha
I have a old white padded for round hom and normal showjumping shows, and a flat plain one for showing
