Looking for the softest, cushiest padded crown snaffle bridle available. Must be extremely cut back around the ears. Want a very soft crank also.
Need it for young mare that seems to have poll issues per more than one top chiro.

Albion KB Bridle...


an absolutely beautiful bridle...I have 2 and they are so soft, supple, VERY padded on crown and noseband...and last forever...mine are older, so do not have the cut back ears slots on crown, but the newer versions (such as the one above) do...

I have also been looking and this one seems to be an option:

The Schleese snaffle bridle is GORGEOUS! Just got mine last week!

I know it is cheap...


but my mare who has super sensitive skin and gets irritated by anything touching her, seems to love this bridle!

It has all the qualities and options of much higher end bridles, is super soft and padded, and you can't beat the price. It also has a really great locking system for the bridle hanger and reins, I LOVE it! Or they also make the bridle with the standard rein system elsewhere on the website.

And just a little tip everyone, google schneiders tack coupons and a $10 off code pops up that you put in the checkout! So it ends up being 89.95!!!

The most cut back at the crown bridle, that I've seen so far, are the new Dy'on 'Difference' bridles.

Devoucoux makes 'ergonomic' ones

Barnsby used to make 'magnetic' crown poll device you could add to your bridle. Someone I know have one and she swears by it!

My Vespucci bridle is one of the softess bridle I've ever owned. I try
not to oil it too much. It has a single layer padded crown piece so it it really soft at the poll.

My very sensitive Arab has been happy in an Elevator bridle. They're not a common brand, but the quality and fit is excellent.
