Double bridles & double bridles for horses

A snaffle bit, a curb bit, two pairs of reins and a curb chain are part of a curb bridle. Many different designs such as round-stitched reins, anatomically shaped neck pieces, glitter on the browband or lacquer on the noseband make not only the double bridle but also your horse shine in dressage.

The use of a double bridle

Horses with double bridles

What is a curb needed for?

A goal in dressage as well as in the entire equestrian sport is a fine influence and almost invisible aids. A double bridle can help ride highly demanding lessons with minimal impact. If the effect of a snaffle and a curb bit is compared, the curb bit can be sharper. As a result, the smallest movements and aids are sufficient, because pressure is exerted on the horse's mouth and certain points on the horse's face. It goes without saying that a double bridle is not suitable for a complete novice rider, for a rider whose seat is not yet balanced, rein aids that cannot be given independently of the seat, or with a restless hand. A double bridle should not be used on young and inexperienced horses either.

Horse with curb

What is curb maturity?

However, a double bridle used with a soft and yielding hand can be a very good tool for working out a perfect erection and for refining collected lessons. A double bridle should only be used when both partners - i.e. horse and rider - are ready for it. A rider achieves the so-called curb maturity when he is able to influence his horse in all gaits with an independent and relaxed seat. A horse is ready for a curb when it is balanced and has learned to safely stretch the bit and also to remain permeable in the lessons. There should also be a certain basic willingness to attend the meeting.

Structure & effect of a curb bridle

In contrast to a bridle, a curb bridle is characterized by the following features:

  • Two cheekpieces - so that the bar bit can also be buckled in addition to the single or double jointed bit of the snaffle bit.
  • The cheek pieces are buckled into the upper tree and the curb reins into the lower tree of the bit.
  • A curb chain is also part of a double bridle and is attached to the right and left of the upper tree.
  • The snaffle bit then lies in the horse's mouth behind the curb bit.
  • Correctly fastened, the curb forms an angle of about 45 degrees to the horse's mouth. In practical application, this means that the action on the curb rein creates a lever that acts on the horse's mouth. With the pull on the curb reins, the simultaneous forward movement of the upper lever arm in the direction of the nostrils also exerts pressure on the poll and the chin pit. An experienced and skilled rider can take advantage of this to evoke a clearer bridle on the horse, which can be particularly helpful in the collecting lessons.

    In tournament sport, tests from L-level are advertised for both double bridles and bridles. In the higher classes M and S, the curb bridle is often the prescribed bridle, with tests of the medium and heavy classes being able to be ridden on a snaffle more and more often. The rider is then given the choice of which bridle he would like to use.

    In addition to the differences between a curb bridle and a snaffle, there are also similarities, but these mostly relate to the design and appearance. The curb models are available in either classic black or stylish brown. All pieces are made of high quality leather and very well made. Visually, the available double bridles vary between flat and round sewn, are available in a lacquered look or with rhinestone-studded headbands. Known bridles and double bridles manufacturers are Schockemöhle Sports, Busse, Kavalkade or passer.
