How to Bridle a Horse in the English Style : Parts of an English Bridle

August 14, 2019


Hi, I’m Kelli on behalf of Expert Village
I’m going to show you my tips and techniques to properly bridle your horse with a English
bridle. I’m going to go over some of the basic parts of the bridle. These of course are the
reins. This is what is attached to the bit so it enables you to control your horse when
you are riding. The crown piece is the part that goes behind the horses ears. This is
the brow band this is going to go across the forehead of the horse. This is a nose band,
this goes across the horses nose. These are cheek pieces so these go on the horse cheek,
this is also where you are able to adjust the length of your bit so it would be the
proper size for your horses mouth. This little skinny strap here is your throat latch. So
this would clip under your horses throat to hold the bridle on and then your nose band
buckles on as well. This buckles under the horses chin so it would keep your bridle in
place and keep a little bit better control. So those are some of the basic parts of the
English bridle.
