English Hunter Jumper Bridle
What if you could take a beautiful English bridle and savvy it up? That's exactly what Linda Parelli did. As you may or may not know, Linda is passionate about dressage and jumping, and since meeting Pat in 1989, she has been focused on revisiting the sport and bringing to it the savvy she's learned from Pat about creating true partnerships with our horses. The right equipment is a key part of that.

What if you could take a beautiful English bridle and savvy it up? Thatâ€™s exactly what Linda Parelli did. So, how would a bridle do that? Hereâ€™s Linda, to tell you in her own words: â€œI love the look of an English Bridle, noseband and all. What I donâ€™t like is strapping the horseâ€™s mouth tightly shut (itâ€™s against the FEI rules, anyway!). There are only so many ways a horse can express his pleasure or displeasure with our â€˜feel', and opening his mouth is one of them.
Thatâ€™s why I wanted to have a noseband that would fit snugly, but not restrict the horseâ€™s mouth â€“ so I put elastic in there! There are two kinds, I call them â€˜FLEXIâ€™ and â€˜COMFIâ€™, because there is a lot of elastic in them. Now Iâ€™ve got the look I want and my horses have the comfort they need. They can even chew and graze in it.
I also love a bit of bling on the browbands â€“ Iâ€™ve collected about 12 over the last couple of years, but I never change them out, because itâ€™s too hard! Itâ€™s such an ordeal to unbuckle all those buckles, and fiddle and re-buckle again. So they all sit in the box, unused.
In designing this bridle, I thought about putting a snap on the browbands so I could change them as often as I wanted or felt like. A girl cannot have enough blingâ€¦ we get bored with the same look, day in and day out! With the snap-on browbands, I can easily change to whatever I feel like!â€
