The solution: Not only for sensitive horses! For all riding styles and for lunging.
The Barefoot® 'Contour Physio' headpiece can be adapted exactly to the horse's head because the bridle is made completely differently to a conventional headpiece:
A. The Contour headpiece is curved forwards and thus leaves the sensitive area of the nerve cord attached to the occipital bone free from pressure. The headpiece is softly padded and curved in the area of the horse's ears - the ears have room and the headpiece nestles softly against the horse.
B. The cheek pieces and the throatlatch are well thought out and adapted to the horse's head in a different way. The cheek pieces fork and the Y-shaped arrangement prevents slipping: The horse's eye remains free! The bridle can be adjusted exactly to the horse's head and stays in place.
The Barefoot® 'Contour Physio' bridle can be used in many ways:
1. with Barefoot® 'Shape-It' nose piece or cavesson for bitless riding or lunging (example photo 1).
2. with hackamore or bosal etc....
Colours: Brown with light brown soft leather padding Black with grey soft leather padding.
Delivery: without noseband (cavesson) and without bit/bit bridle.

Explanation of length and measurement: The length was measured from left to right from the mouth (over half of the bit ring, see photo 4 with grey horse) over the nape of the neck. Including the partition between the cheek piece and the nape of the neck, this is added with 2 5 cm each. Deviations within a size of approx. 1 cm per individual part are possible due to the handwork - the head piece was always measured on the outside.
