The Multibridle is an incredibly flexible and versatile bridle in Horseware's anatomical and revolutionary "Rambo Micklem" series, where anatomy is prioritized in a whole new way. The concept behind the Micklem bridles is to prevent pressure on sensitive points on the horse's face, such as the poll or jawbone. The Multibridle is named because it can be used both with a bit and as a bitless alternative, making it extremely flexible and useful in a variety of situations. The Rambo Micklem Multibridle is available in brown and black leather of extremely high quality! Sizes range from pony to extra full.
Differences between the Rambo Micklem Multibridle and a traditional bridle include:
1. The placement of the noseband is higher than on a traditional bridle, which means the horse avoids pressure on the nasal bones, a sensitive area. Additionally, the higher placement of the noseband avoids pressure on nerves in the area, which, under intense pressure, can cause discomfort for the horse and, in the worst case, numbness in the lower part of the head.
2. A widened headpiece with soft padding prevents pressure on the atlas bone, which has sensitive protrusions.
3. The placement of the bridle's cheekpieces is slightly lower than "normal" to avoid pressure on the protruding jawbones, another sensitive point for many horses.
4. Furthermore, these advantages prevent pressure on the cheek teeth, where chafing can easily occur on the soft tissue inside the horse's mouth.
How to fit the Rambo Micklem Multibridle:
Refer to the images above as you read the description.
1. First, attach the bit to the bit straps with the buckle facing outward. Then attach them to the cheekpieces. When using it bitless, attach the jaw strap as shown in the image here.
2. When fitting the Micklem bridle, it's important to position the noseband slightly higher on the nose ridge, ideally about 2-3 cm above the corners of the mouth.
3. Micklem doesn't have a traditional jaw strap but rather another strap slightly lower down; this should sit against the skin, not hang loosely like a jaw strap.
4. Fasten the noseband in front of the bit as usual.
5. There are two different lengths of bit straps; here, you'll need to determine which fits the horse's anatomy best, using the images as a guide.
