The Red Barn Arena Ergonomic Bridle features advanced fit designs providing extra comfort for the horse. The Arena is anatomically designed to avoid and alleviate pressure on your horse’s most sensitive areas, such as their poll, mouth, and ears. These design features have shown horses to generally be more comfortable and many undesirable habits to be alleviated, such as head shaking, teeth grinding and general resistance. The Arena’s key features include an ergonomically-designed noseband (1 1/2″ across the front between the flash strap, narrowing to 1/2″ on the sides), it’s shape adapted to fit the horse’s anatomy, alleviating pressure on the main facial nerve; and a softly padded, extra wide crownpiece shaped to evenly distribute poll pressure and to allow room for the horse’s ears. The Arena is complete with a curved, padded round-raised leather brow band and ½” cheek pieces. (This Bridle is sold without reins) All hardware is stainless steel, hook-stud end, with a roller buckle on the adjustable noseband. This bridle is made of the finest Grade A English Sedgewick’s leather.
