How the TB bridles work

Designed with Vision

“Our bridles are designed to relieve a horse's head as much as possible on several important ones (pressure-) points. Research shows this with other bridles (also named anatomically) these points are taxed ”

The models are European patented under EUIPO with the numbers 004746246.0001 in 006730263-0001
Action is taken against counterfeiting of model and shape. This also applies to the individual parts of these models.

Relieving the Atlas

Our bonnet is designed in such a way that only on the Atlas is a widening so that the pressure is distributed. It is also narrowly cut behind the ears so that the ears are as free as possible and get as little pressure as possible. The shape of the cheek pieces also contribute to this because, as it were, an arc is inserted so that the pulling force disappears forwards and this comes to lie towards the cheek where no blood- and nerves run. The throat latch is fitted and therefore not tight.

The effect of our cheek pieces

Because the cheek pieces are lower than with other bridles, the horse has less problems with obstructing the view. With the other bridles the cheekpieces run fairly close to the eyes and over the molars where the necessary blood- and nerves run. These are protected as much as possible by the design of our cheek pieces. The cheekpieces are the connecting pieces between the headpiece and the noseband. This allows you to adjust our bridle both from the headpiece and from the noseband so that it always fits optimally on the horse's head. For the best position of our bridle, the cheek piece should be approximately in the middle of the cheek.

How the noseband works

Our noseband is loose and without tension around the itching bone so that no pressure is experienced on, among other things. the great blood vessels and nerve bundles. Because the bit straps are attached to the noseband, our bridle therefore mainly works on the nose and not with pressure on the atlas and the nose. The noseband should therefore not be tight. Riding a horse on the nose (provided the noseband is properly positioned)is much less harmful than driving with constant pressure on the Atlas, this can cause a lot of physical damage.

Driving with the Basic model and with the Pro

The Basic model can be used with both bit and bitless, the Pro model can be used with a rod & bartack if ridden only on bartack.

Rod operation & trains

The bit strap of the bar is attached to the chin strap, when you pull the reins there will be pressure on the atlas. Driving with the bar is therefore really only necessary if light pressure is required to carry out an order. Initially, the snaffle is ridden.

The figures indicate where there is no pressure with this bridle, which is the case with many bridles.
The arrows show the functioning of the bridle. The yellow line is the snaffle as soon as you put pressure on it, the horse will respond to this. The red one is the rod, when there is pressure on this it will put pressure on the atlas. There is virtually no pressure or minimal pressure on the green line.
