Choosing the Right Dressage Bridle

Our dressage bridles are designed specifically to enhance the intricate communication between horse and rider on the flat. Here we will walk you through the different options and styles of dressage bridles we offer here at Schneiders.

First there are two main types of dressage bridles.

Snaffle Dressage Bridle

Many riders choose a snaffle dressage bridle because their horse responds well to the simpler communication style a snaffle bit offers. This type of dressage bridle also is perfect for beginners who have not mastered the rein precision required to use a double bridle.

Dressage Double Bridles

More advanced dressage riders often ride in a weymouth or dressage double bridle. This bridle has two sets of reins and allows for more intricate and specific communication between horse and rider. This type of bridle is usually used for competition and advanced training.

Many riders also choose to have both types of dressage bridle so they can switch depending on what type of riding they are doing. Many upper level riders school in a snaffle bridle and show in a double bridle to increase their performance.

Another factor to consider is the noseband of your dressage bridle. For dressage there are 4 common types of nosebands:

Dressage Bridle with Crank Noseband

The crank noseband uses a leverage buckle so the rider can make the noseband tighter than a standard cavesson noseband. Most dressage bridles with crank nosebands prevent the horse from evading the bit, and they are often thicker with extra padding to ensure the horse is comfortable. This noseband can also be paired with a flash to further prevent the horse from opening their mouth to evade the bit.

Dressage Bridle with Flash Noseband

This noseband is a cavesson or crank noseband with a flash attachment. The flash attachment is a thin strap that attaches to the middle of the noseband. It then goes in front of the bit and under the chin. This noseband is designed to keep the horse from evading the bit, while also allowing the rider to use a standing martingale.

Dressage Bridle with Anatomical Noseband

Anatomical nosebands are the main feature of the new anatomical dressage bridles that are specifically engineered to enhance the comfort of your horse. Anatomical nosebands are positioned on the base of your horse's nose, but unlike other nosebands they are often wider, and they curve to fit the shape of your horse's head.

Dressage Bridle with Standard Cavesson

This noseband is the simplest noseband as it fits snugly about two fingers below the horse's cheek bone. This noseband is best suited to horses that do not try to evade the bit.

The last thing to consider when purchasing your dressage bridle is your personal style or what you will be using the bridle for. Many dressage bridles come with intricate stitching, browbands with rhinestones, or metal detailing. Some riders prefer some bling on their bridles for the show ring, while others prefer the plainer more classic look.

In our selection you can find detailed and classic bridles with numerous size and style options to suit your needs. Shop our collection to find the perfect dressage bridle for you and your horse today.
