NRS by Dutton Floating Hood Cavalry Bit Bridle Set
Style #: NRS-07-122-SE-RR
- This Floating Hood bit works mainly on pressure to the outside of the bar pressure points, thus creating lateral flexion as well as vertical flexion depending on in-direct or direct reining. The low hood will not add palate pressure, it will aid as a roller with the copper rings for ease to a nervous or fidgety horse. The 8" Cavalry cheek is "swept back" behind the mouth for great balance and leverage as well as to discourage a horse from lipping or biting at the shank.
- The oiled harness leather headstall comes equipped with solid brass hardware and a stitched slide ear. A slide ear is perfect for quick and easy bridling.
- 8 foot long, 5/8” Harness Leather Roping Reins are alsoincluded in this set.
- A curb strap with harness leather ends is also included. The curb strap attaches to the bit and ensures that the bit remains in place and pressure is applied to the horse's chin when cues are administered, thus encouraging your horse to give to pressure and not brace against the bit.
This bridle set is what we see as an "all around" set. Simply this bit will meet the needs for a lot of horse's and rider's. Here's how, this bit works primarily off of bar pressure which is the most common pressure to a horse (i.e. colts started with snaffles). Thus, this bit will motivate a horse to operate with vertical and laterial flexion. NRS is also offering this bit as part of anexclusive bit, headstall and reins package. The leather tackaccompanying the bit is made of premium harness leather, which we source from a small tack shop right here in the U.S. Detail is important to us here at NRS. From the slide ear to the bit tie ends, which are looped three times for additional security, every piece of this set has been carefully thought out to provide you, the customer, with the greatest quality possible.
