Double Bridle
Double bridles are most commonly associated with dressage and certain horse show classes where formal tack, attire and turnout is standard. They are required for upper level FEI dressage tests.
A Double Bridle is a bridle that has two bits and four reins. The bridoon is a modified snaffle bit that is smaller in diameter and has smaller bit rings than a traditional snaffle. The Weymouth is a curb bit with shanks and a curb chain.
The Bridoon is adjusted so that it sits above and behind the Weymouth, and the two are sized to compliment each other.
