LUMIERE - MILAN BRIDLE - BLACK - NAPPA REINS

The 'Milan' convertible bridle is a classic style, great for those after a more traditional look. Available in black and brown, the bridle features subtle fancy stitch on the noseband and browband.

With a convertible noseband it can be worn as a cavesson or hanoverian (with flash), through a loop system.

The soft eco-friendly leather bridle features the signature Lumiere anatomic features of a monocrown style headpiece (single strap, cut away from the ears) with generous gel padding, along with a gel padded (non-crank) noseband.

The bridle allows freedom of movement and even pressure distribution. Your horse will love the comfort in this bridle which has been hand made to last.

Features:

  • Black vegetable tanned eco-friendly top quality leather
  • White stitching detail
  • Elegant deep drop raised leather browband
  • Gel-padded anatomic head piece (single strap)
  • Gel-padded  noseband in hanoverian
  • Stainless steel fittings
  • Premium nappa leather reins included
  • Quality stitching and craftsmanship

 

Not sure about size?

How do you measure a standard bridle?

Browband: measured from the end of each loop, straight across. Even if the style is curved.

Noseband: measured as a circumference when done up in the middle hole

Headpiece: measured with the cheek pieces attached on the middle hole. Measure from bit, to bit, over the top of the horse's head.

Reins: measured as a single side length from bit to buckle  (don't measure the buckle).

How do you measure an anatomic / micklem style bridle?

To get the perfect fit for your anatomic / micklem style bridle, refer to the below sizing chart, using the diagram. It is recommended that you mark out the measurements with chalk on your horse’s face, so that once you’ve finished your measurements you can see the pattern of the fit, and be sure you have measured correctly.

Our micklem style bridles are fairly standard in sizing.

Measurement 1: measure from 1cm under the horse's cheekbone, all the way over the horse’s poll to the same point on the other side. 

Measurement 2: measure the browband vertically from end of loop, to end of loop (don’t dip the measuring tape for curved browbands).

Measurement 3: run your finger down the bottom point of the protruding cheek bone until you get to the top of the bit. Then measure across your horse’s nose horizontally to the same point on the other side.

Measurement 4: from the outer corner of your horse’s eye, run your finger vertically down your horse’s face and stop when you reach around the middle of the bit ring (you will be an inch or so away from the bit ring). Measure from this point under your horse’s chin to the same point on the other side of its face.

Anatomic / micklem style bridle sizing chart:

Measurements are taken from the middle hole, with 2-3 holes available either side. Therefore you are looking for the sizing that is closest to your measurements – not exactly the same as your measurements.
