Ideal for dressage, shows, pony club, jumping or just because you like a quality bridle!

Designed for well-educated horses who respond to light rein aids. 

  • Made from quality English leather with a white padded and raised patent leather (shiny) browband/noseband, and a shaped, white padded headpiece. 
  • Stainless hardware for no rust. 
  • Removeable browband to change size or add your own.
  • Multi-purpose for leading/lunging or the connector strap can be removed for ridden show classes. Also a great option for showing in leadline classes. 
  • DO NOT USE FOR TYING UP - like all leather bridles, it will break if tied solid (even to baling twine). 

Unique Chinstrap: The soft webbing chin strap keeps the noseband from twisting to give clear and direct communication.
This means you can use lighter rein aids. When rein pressure is applied the chinstrap becomes snug but does not over-tighten due to the type of webbing used.

90% of the pressure is on top of the nose, and the horse can self release the chinstrap easily for eating, yawning etc. 

The bridle can also be used as a sidepull by clipping the chinstrap and noseband rings together (recommended to start with if your horse hasn't experienced a chinstrap before). Learn more about the use of the chinstrap here

The LightRider Dressage bridle features an extra cheekpiece buckle to allow for a bit to be added if you need one for competitions, or for your transition to bitless.

Check the sizing guide to ensure you have the right size for your horse.  (exchanges are welcome but shipping is expensive!). 

This bridle does not include reins because it allows you to choose from the selection of LightRider Reins available here or you may already have reins you can use. 

I recommend you use scissor rein clips for easy change over to the leading ring which enables groundwork/leading/lunging, or buy LightRider Reins that include rein clips to match.

I was very surprised at how relaxed she was from the start very happy with it the only thing I would say is the throat lash is way too long. Store Owner: Thanks for the feedback and yes we discovered the throatlatch measurement was being made too long and have corrected that now.

Love This!

My mare loves this bitless bridle. We use it with the chin strap. She is happy and light. The leather is excellent quality. However, I am surprised there is no padding under the buckle on the nose piece, especially since it is a bit large.

I want to thank you for your wonderful bridle.

I've bought the LightRider dressage bridle and my horse and I are really happy with it! I have a Friesian stallion who can be really resistant. I do Parelli with him and I've always ridden him with the Parelli rope halter that it's fine for freestyle riding but not for finesse. When he doesn't want to flex or stop he can get really strong but with the LightRider he's super light, no problem with riding finesse with constant contact and absolutely no problem with flexing the neck or going backwards. I had tried a crossunder bitless bridle with him but he couldn't stand the fact that it needed to be tight on his face, he really wants to feel free and he loves the LightRider bridle as there's nothing tight at all! Thank you very much again. " Elena and Siro in Italy.

Love it! We are all about having our ponies supple and rounding naturally -working from the hind in without bracing or being forced.

This bridle is lovely. It is wonderful quality and looks perfect on my mare. She is just being started and showed quite an aversion to bits, so I had to find her an alternative or it would be many months more before she could really get under saddle. I wanted something that would feel similar to a bitted bridle if I needed to switch her over later in life... still precious few shows allow bitless bridles in the US! Fingers crossed the rules change before we're ready. Beyond that, she is responding very well to this bridle. She is relaxed and focused on what we are learning, rather than this weird thing that is stuck in her mouth. Also, we loaned it to a lesson horse so our trainer could try it out and see how he did. He's the one all kids start on, and as he's a sweet old gentleman the trainer wants to keep the youngsters from hanging on his mouth. The horse thought it was wonderful, and my 8-yr-old boy rode him in it. We didn't do anything to get the horse accustomed to it... just threw my kid on and sent him out. The horse's lower lip stayed loose and dangling the entire lesson. Very cute and happy horse! Definitely not something you'd see with a bit. He will be getting his own Lightrider bridle soon.
