To keep your training on track and ensure you're riding on the bit correctly, take a look at our bridle advice from Emile and the team at Albion Saddlemakers.
Getting your horse to work on the bit is impossible if his bridle doesn't fit.
An ill-fitting bridle creates pressure on and around your horse's poll, browband and noseband area, causing discomfort and pain.
Areas to check include the browband and noseband areas.
Check the browband - if it's too tight it will pull the headpiece onto the back of your horse's ears.
Try a padded headpiece that has a slip-head thats automatically positioned over the headpiece to disperse poll pressure.
You should also check the throatlash - there should be enough room to place a clenched fist between the side of your horse's check and the throatlash.
