I have an Ovation Comfort Crown (crownpiece is all in one) bridle. It has a flash noseband and I want a drop noseband for it. So, the noseband has to have a buckle on each side of the cheekpiece that I can buckle to the straps from the crownpiece. An internet search has yielded nothing. The cheekpieces of the crown are also 3/8" wide, so I need a drop with 3/8" wide cheekpieces. I tried Dover and Jerry's Harness Shop to no avail. I really don't want to buy a whole new bridle just to be able to use a drop. Thanks!

You may have to get something custom made...

why is so important to get a drop noseband which is one of the most severe nosebands as it works on the bridge of the nose if you incoporate the crown with it then your restricting the horse to be relaxed at the yaw as your resttricting his airways at at the poll

if your having problems with the horse being strong then look at what and how your riding him, so oftne people are quick to blame the horse but dont look at what they are doing to make the horse do xyz

OP, I'd focus on finding a drop with a crown that is the correct width leather you need, then have it cut and another buckle added to it.

So, I called Jerry's Harness Shop because I so love the quality of their bridles. They make a reasonably priced comfort crown bridle with a drop option. Jerry could not have been nicer. They have a new "Showtime Line" that is also American made. This line is much less $$ than the upper end stuff they make, but of wonderful quality and workmanship. I will be ordering it soon. Drops are making a comeback. There is a reason why the SRS uses them and why many young horses in Europe are started in them. IMHO, it is kinder and my horse is MUCH HAPPIER in one. As a HORSEMAN this is what is important to me GLS.

I have a drop noseband for my albion KB snaffle. It has a buckle on each side instead of a strap over the top. The leather is really nice.

Contact your local albion rep for it.

Nonsense. Actually, total garbage. Not to mention against the laws of physics. :rolleyes:

Curious as to what the band that goes across the nose measures on the different brands. I have found that to be tough to get correct.

I use an adjustable drop noseband. Comes in cob, horse and WB sizes. It actually looks very nice on the horse as well as fitting very well. Here (http://www.tackzone.com/catalog/product_info.php?pName=202b-adjustable-drop-noseband&cName=dressage-tack-nosebands)'s one.

Tiki, I have never seen an adjustable one before. That makes so much sense.

I used one on a TB because the drop kept the bit steadier and he prefered that.
