The “Milo” bridle is an anatomical bitless side pull intended for the sensitive and soft horse.
It features a padded monocrown shaped anatomically to leave room for the ears for optimal equine comfort.
The noseband is shaped to avoid the sensitive cheekbones and fastens higher on the face, just under the cheek, to avoid the sensitive chin area & mandibular nerve. The fastener on the noseband has a padded chin guard. The noseband is intended to make less contact on the face and avoid sensitive areas for horses who have sensitive faces but still prefer to be ridden bitless.
It is best suited for horses who have already gone bitless and/or are soft and responsive and not strong pullers as it isn’t as stable as a regular noseband due to how it is shaped to alleviate pressure off of the face.
The bitless noseband is a side pull, so has no cross under tightening action and is a very mild bitless option, similar to riding in a halter.
The heavily padded noseband ensures optimal comfort for the horse. This is a great bitless option for sensitive horses who are soft and responsive bitless or for starting to introduce bitless to a horse, but we recommend ensuring that you train bitless cues prior to doing heavy riding in it as horses who do not understand the bitless cues may be strong in this and this isn’t a bitless option suitable for heavy pullers.
Note: These fit a bit large. If your horse is between sizes, sizing down would be the best option as they have a lot of adjustment. If your horse has mixed sizing, we do offer semi custom orders.
Comes with a pair of webbed reins.
