'Wellington Contour' 2-in-1 BridlepatentedThe most sensitive area behind the horse's ear, the atlas…The atlas is where the nuchal ligament attaches which is responsible for the whole chain of movements of the back. Additionally here the head joins with the cervical spine, with the foramen magnum connecting the brain with the medulla. Too much pressure here can cause an inflammation of the nuchal ligament's onset, causing the horse to be in tremendous pain.The Barefoot Bridle Contour is formed in such a way, that it spares the atlas, avoiding the application of any pressure. The browband and the noseband are shaped anatomically as well: The noseband is shaped upwards along the bridge of nose so breathing is not restricted.2-in-1: The bridle can be used with or without a snaffle bit. The cheek piece can easily be removed or attached thanks to a Chicago-screw.The brow-band as well as poll- and nose-band are padded softly completely, including the area of buckles and around the ears.A flash noseband has been omitted completely as we consider them to be inhumane and unnecessary. A horse that trusts his rider's hands will not open his mouth unless he's got a toothache or doesn't like the bit. To solve these problems one shouldn't tie the mouth shut but have the teeth checked, use a bitless bridle and softening the rider's hands.

Barefoot Bridle Contour
This anatomically-shaped and patented headpiece is the ideal solution for sensitive horses. The special form of the Barefoot-Contour headpiece means that no pressure is exerted on the sensitive area between the horse's ears, the occipital bone. The middle part of the headpiece has been formed in a curve, so that it bends forwards and comes to lie in front of the base of the horse’s nuchal ligament. The area around the ears is cut out and cushioned with soft padding.
This headpiece has a double function and can be converted for use with or without a bit in only a few simple steps. These headpieces can also help make the transition to a bitless riding style; more information, take a look at our brochure: Bitless riding.
