Bridles and Bridle Fitting

The Fairfax Bridle

 

We are delighted to have been selected as one of the few stockists for the new Fairfax Bridle. Ranging from £400-£600 depending on options, as a result of the interest we have had from customers in this excellent product, we are offering a bridle fitting service, to allow people to 'try before they buy'.

 

This revolutionary bridle design is based on two years of scientific testing to establish exactly where the pressure peaks are under a bridle and how they affect the horse in motion. Using two bespoke pressure mats, the SMS/BEF Pliance system was used by Mark Fisher to analyse the pressure under different designs of headpiece and noseband. This data was then used to design a bridle that significantly reduces pressure in the six key zones where peak pressures were recorded.

 

Gait analysis was carried out by Russell Guire of Centaur Biomechanics to establish how a reduction in pressure affects the horse’s freedom of movement. Horses wearing the Fairfax Performance Bridle, recorded significantly greater hock flexion, knee flexion and forelimb protraction. Riders could feel this improvement in movement and also a greater harmony with their horse.

 

A scientific paper on the findings of our bridle research has recently been published.

Fairfax Bridle Testimonials:

 

The bridle fitted great with the length of cheek pieces that were on it. We only managed 1 arena ride and the horse's straightness was better. The 2nd ride was hacking in the forestry, there was no head tilting and much lighter in his contact, much less resistance all round. We expect this to improve the more we ride in the bridle.

 

Thanks
