This fifth generation, family owned business develops products that set a new standard, prioritising high quality materials aiding high quality performance. Their patented innovations are based on the principles of supporting the biomechanics of the rider horse partnership. Horse and rider comfort are at the forefront of everything they do. This list of our selection of Stübben bridles will hopefully show you what the brand has to offer.

Stübben Bridles: Stübben Freedom Bridle

STÜBBEN FREEDOM BRIDLE

The Freedom Bridle is designed to enhance your horses’ natural performance through comfort and freedom and movement. This bridle respects your horses’ anatomy and biomechanics. This is the first bridle that was developed considering all anatomical characteristics of the horse’s head, there are a few features to increase comfort for the horse. Firstly, Stübben’s innovative cheek piece design places them lower than usual in order to offer a full field of vision for the horse. Often, sight is constricted by the check pieces. This bridle also fully preserves the horse’s freedom of movement. It does this by making sure that neither the headstall nor the browband cross any of the horses’ sixteen ear muscles. Also, to sustain your horses natural joy in moving, the headpiece and throat latch keep the sensitive areas in the neck and throat free from pressure. These innovative features ensure your horses performance and comfort. The noseband comes as a flash that can be removed and transformed to a cavesson with the clever removable attachment.

STÜBBEN LEITRIM MEXICAN NOSEBAND BRIDLE

This traditionally styled bridle features a softly padded headstall with an integrated throat latch and straps for buckling on the noseband. The clever design prevents a pile up of materials on one section on the bridle, and where ever layer cross, they are placed above padding. These features help to avoid chafing for your horses’ complete comfort. The ‘Mexican’ part of the name refers to the noseband. Also known as a ‘Grackle’, this noseband and flash combination is in a figure eight, crossing over the nose and fastening at the side of the mouth. Where the grackle meets the check pieces and crosses over on the nose there is a thick, fluffy section of material to prevent any discomfort on these sensitive areas from rubbing leather. This bridle is available in black and ebony.
