Showjumping Figure 8 Bridles
Figure 8 bridles are a style of bridle noseband used by eventers and showjumpers. Jumper riders and event riders love the selection of horse bridles at Tack Warehouse.
The figure8 bridles function basically like a basic snaffle bridle; however, the noseband is wrapped over the nose and chin in a Figure 8 shape. Figure 8 Bridles usually include some sort of sheepskin or padding at the cross point of the noseband. The figure 8 design keeps the horse's mouth closed like a drop or flash noseband while allowing for full use of the horse of the nostrils. This helps aid air supply, needed for galloping. The figure 8 bridles are generally durable leather and come standard in brown although black is an option for the Equestrian Fashionista trying to be matchy-matchy.
USA, English Leather or Imported?
Our Tack Warehouse buyers shop for bridles that are made in the USA or imported from England as these tend to be the best made. If you are eventing or showjumping this is a piece of horse equipment you do not want to skimp on because the bridle is your protection for you and your horse. We look for bridles made from English tanned leather brands or German tanned hides such as Sedwick leather that holds up with use. The worst thing that can happen is a bridle failure from an inexpensive imported cheap India bridle made from water buffalo leather that tears or falls apart while a rider is on course.
