Nosebands are part of the bridle. They are available in different versions such as combined English, Hanoverian or Mexican.
The different nosebands
There are a variety of different types of horsemans. The
English noseband, which consists of only one noseband and is mainly used for curbs. The Swedish noseband Similar to the English noseband, but has loop buckles and is usually better padded. The Hanoverian noseband is buckled below the bit and is therefore in the horse's chin area. The combined noseband is a combination of an English and a Hanoverian noseband. Combined in English, the locking strap lies under the bit as in the Hanoverian bridle, the noseband as in the English two fingers under the cheekbone. Since the strap is a little less deep than on the Hanover halter, breathing is not so easily hindered. The English combined noseband is very common. Last but not least, there is that mexican noseband, which is more likely to be found in show jumping. There is no separate noseband and locking strap, but both functions are performed by a long strap that is crossed on the nasal bone. Most of the time this point is padded.
