So we delve into our stash of cheekpieces to find the correct length…..

Compare Cheekpiece length

Remember the blue line which was level with the bottom hole? So the cheekpiece on the right is the best length.

We are here to help

No one disputes that the leather on the $600 bridle is to die for… But I get a bit nervous about my kids and their sense of responsibility for them. After a lot of looking I found the Dever Bridles. Dever is a UK company founded by horse riders and they offer 2 levels for bridle.

The Classic Bridle range is UK Leather.

The Ascot range is cheaper leather – Generally German leather.
