Designed to fit perfectly above the nasal cavity while being in front of the bit achieving its purpose effectively.
Most drop Nosebands used have two common downfalls, both having huge ramifications on horse performance. One being the length of the leather piece going over the nose. When tightened this creates pressure on one or both sides of the bit, decreasing sensitivity and movement of the bit thus interrupting effective control of the horse. The drop Noseband should fit in front of the bit letting the bit move unimpeded. The second downfall is the same piece sitting too low and restricting the nasal flare while the horse is breathing heavily. To prevent both from happening these drop Nosebands are the perfect length over the nose and a small stabilising piece of leather forming a triangle which holds the nose piece up above the nasal cavity.
Length of head piece to fit most horses with still room to lengthen or shorten depending on horse size.
