The grackle bridle is characterised above all by the round "button" on the horse's nose, often lined with sheepskin. The shape and position of the grackle bridle is completely different from other halters, such as the drop noseband bridle.
Due to this different buckling, the grackle bridle offers the horse a lot of space around the nostrils and therefore allows more freedom to breathe. This bridle is therefore very popular, particularly in eventing.
Despite the soft padding of the piece of leather that connects the noseband to the curb strap, you must always pay attention to the correct buckling and positioning of the grackle bridle. The straps that run close to your horse's cheekbone should not be too tight, as the horse is particularly sensitive here.
In the Horze range you will find a wide selection of grackle bridles with a choice of padding.
The most outstanding feature of the grackle bridle is probably the sheepskin padding that rests on the horse's nose.
A grackle bridle consists of a continuous strap that crosses over the horse's nose, padded with sheepskin, and is then buckled under the chin. Because it has an effect on several points on the horse's head and also because of the sheepskin underlay, it is considered to be a particularly gentle and comfortable bridle.
The correct positioning of the bridle is also very important for the grackle bridle. If the bridle is fastened correctly, neither the horse's breathing nor its mouth activity will be affected, but if it is fastened too tightly, it can quickly affect your horse.
