Dr. Robert Cook Bitless Bridle Western Leather Headstall
The Dr. Robert Cook Bitless Bridle Western Leather Headstall is made in the USA out of US bridle leather. The western headstall has more western looking buckles, and features small conchos at the browband.
Known for distributing gentle pressure to far less sensitive tissues and distributes even this amount of pressure over a wider area. It does this through two loops, one over the poll and one over the nose. Essentially, it gives the rider an inoffensive and benevolent method of communication by applying a nudge to one half of the head (for steering) or a hug to the whole of the head (for stopping). Because The Bitless Bridle exerts minimal pressure and spreads this over a large and less critical area, it is more humane than a bit. It provides better communication, promotes a true partnership between horse and rider, and does not interfere with either breathing or striding. As a result, performance is improved.

Noseband: Measure 1 1/2'' to 2'' up from the corner of the horse's mouth. From that point, measure the circumference of the horse's nose.
Headstall: From the same point (1 1/2'' - 2'' up from the corner of the horse's mouth), run your tape measure to the very top of the poll (to the point right between the ears) and double that measurement number. This will determine the size headstall your horse needs.
