What is the cavesson used for?

In Germany, the cavesson is mostly used for lunging and lunging young horses. But it can also be used for collecting work at hand, in double lunge work or even for riding. The effect is on the bridge of the horse's nose instead of on the jaw, as with a bit.

Be careful when using it, because the cavesson affects the poll and the outer muscle chain. This continues down the neck and spine to the waist. So you can use the cavesson ideally for position and bending work. By working on the cavesson, your horse should learn to walk independently in a balanced manner, to stretch and bend forwards and downwards.

What does a cavesson look like?

The heavy cavesson is the most widespread variant of the cavesson in Germany. At first glance it looks like a tight-fitting leather halter with wide straps. But the three rings on the noseband are characteristic. The noseband is thickly padded and the metal noseband is incorporated into it. Nowadays there are also cavessons made entirely of leather or even nylon.

How sharp does a cavesson look?

The "sharpness" depends entirely on the processed noseband. A continuous metal strip has a different effect than individual plates. You should therefore carefully study how it works before using it. An optimal fit is also important for correct effectiveness. The noseband must not slip around the bridge of the nose. The nose iron should be two fingers below the cheekbone, similar to an English noseband. The deeper the cavesson is buckled, the sharper it looks. Fasten the noseband so that your horse can still chew freely, but the noseband cannot slip around on the sensitive bridge of the nose. Similar to normal snaffles, the headpiece must allow ear play and must not pinch. The gaiter strap closes in front of the noseband and prevents it from slipping towards the eyes.

If your horse is not yet familiar with the cavesson, pay attention to how it reacts when you put it on. The noseband has to be tightened relatively firmly on the models that are common in Germany. Some horses don't like that much pressure. So slowly get your horse used to it. You should also proceed very slowly and carefully when lunging for the first time. See how your horse reacts and act accordingly. Tugging and pulling on the cavesson can sometimes be very painful for your horse.

Can you ride with a cavesson?

Riding with a cavesson is also possible. Make sure, however, that the reins do not rub and, above all, do not lie too close to the horse's eyes. Again, the exact fit of the bridle is particularly important so that the noseband does not rub over the bridge of the nose.
