Why a lunge bridle?

Lunging makes it possible to promote movement and balance of a horse in ground work.
Using only a snaffle for lunging can have negative and counterproductive effects.

Examples include: Pulling the outer bit ring into the horse’s mouth, compressing and setting up the bit in the horse’s mouth, raised and pinched mouth angles, misaligned nape.

A snaffle is not primarily designed for one-way ground work.

The advantages of lunging bridle and cavesson

In contrast, a well-fitting lunging or cavesson bridle precisely transmits impulses to the bridge of the horse’s nose without a bit.

To ensure good positioning and reliable fixation, a cavesson usually has more and wider straps than a snaffle. A ring is attached to the center of the noseband for attaching the lunge, and there are also rings on the sides.

Because a horse’s head has a lot of bone but little protective muscle and is crisscrossed by numerous nerves, it is very sensitive to pain.

Therefore, it is important to look for a stable fit, good pressure distribution and soft padding of the neck, nose and chin straps in a cavesson.
