Love this bridle
This is the best money I've ever spent on tack. Period. My horse is a different animal, so relaxed and willing to work. I'm so glad my trainer had me give it a try.
I try to avoid fads, especially when it comes to tack, but my god does this bridle work. I have an extremely sensitive chestnut mare who is so hard to bridle, but after two months in this bridle I am so sold on this bridle and recommending it right and left. She is so much more comfortable and relaxed, the straps divide pressure between the nose and mouth and now she's ready and willing every time I get on. Can not recommend this bridle enough.
Immediate difference on the first ride. My stallion started listening with much less pressure on the reins, and he cut down on his head-tossing to the point where it was hardly noticeable. The two straps are amazing for splitting up the pressure and you can tell that the contact on the nose and mouth is a great deal more comfortable. In addition to jumping I do a lot of trail riding, and all the horses I ride this in seem much more willing to accept the bit and use their backends rather and push into the hills rather than getting fussy in the mouth. Love this bridle so much, my horses are so relaxed when they use it. Highly recommend.
I was having a hard time finding a bridle for my daughter's eventing pony. The Micklem fits perfectly, with plenty of adjustments to fit a regular snaffle or a bubble bit! Ended up buying one for my very large mare and it also fits great!
