Horse Bridles

At Wroxham Saddlery, we are delighted to be able to offer you an impressive range of beautifully crafted bridles. We have selected our bridles from the Horseware, Jeffries, Kieffer, Mark Todd, Mountain Horse and shires collections. You will discover the perfect tack for your horse and riding discipline and there are styles to suit all budgets. Whether you are competing or purely riding for pleasure, our range features the perfect choices.

Here’s a quick summery of horse bridles and the styles to consider:

Snaffle Bridles

This type of bridle features a single bit and a single set of reins. The most common bit used with this style of bridle is the snaffle bit, but other single-rein bits can also be utilised. The snaffle bridle and bit is the most commonly used combination and is accepted in a large range of equestrian disciplines. The bridle connects to the bit, and the bit is a straight bar. Snaffle bridles are designed to enable riders to exert control over the horse without the use of any leverage from the bit in the mouth.

Cavesson Bridles

Cavesson bridles have a noseband attached to a slip head that passes through the browband and then sits underneath the headpiece of the bridle. The cavesson noseband is a single strap of leather that fits around the horse's muzzle. This noseband was originally designed so that a standing martingale could be attached to the bridle. In the absence of a martingale, the cavesson noseband is simply cosmetic.

Flash Bridles

This style of bridle features both a cavesson noseband and a drop noseband. Flash bridles are a relatively recent innovation and boast a regular cavesson but with an extra strap which keeps the horse’s mouth closed. They are favoured by show jumpers who appreciate the control of a drop cavesson but wish to keep the English cavesson noseband for attaching a standing martingale.

Grackle Bridles

Grackle bridles have a noseband attached to a slip head that passes through the browband and sits underneath the headpiece of the bridle. These styles incorporate two leather straps that cross over high on the nose and through a slotted, padded leather circle often with a sheepskin backing. The Grackle bridle is a variation on the flash noseband which applies pressure evenly and over a larger area than a flash noseband. This is useful at times when a horse opens its mouth or evades. Grackle bridles provide room around the nostrils and so make breathing easier.

Mexican Bridles

This is a variant of the grakle bridle which has been designed specifically to remove the pressure on the fleshy part of the horse's jaw and teeth.
