Product Code: BI520Double bridle arrangements are used to achieve finer positioning of the head. A curb bit (or Weymouth) is added to the snaffle (which is now called a bradoon). The action on the snaffle is exactly as it is when it is used alone, the curb (or Weymouth) introduces poll and curb groove pressure. The result of pressure on the curb groove (under the horse's chin), is a pivoting action, causing the head to tilt into the conventional 'on the bit' position.
The Weymouth bit is attatched to the main headpiece of the bridle and the bradoon is attached to the sliphead.
Double bridles are always used with two reins. The Weymouth (or curb) rein is normally thinner than the bradoon, this helps the rider differentiate between the two reins. Please note, the bradoon should be 1/4'' to 1/2''
bigger than the Weymouth bit (the latter should be your horse's regular bit size).
Eggbutt cheek bits stop the pinching which can be associated with loose ring bits. These bits are good for novice riders or horses that are fussy in their mouths, as the cheek reduces any subtle movements felt from the rein.
This eggbutt bit is available in a large range of sizes from 11.5cm (4 1/2 inches) to 15cm (6 inches) make your selection from the pull down menu. Remember in a double bridle, the bradoon should be 1/4'' to 1/2'' bigger than the Weymouth bit.
How to correctly adjust the height of your new bit. It is best to do most of the adjustment before putting the bridle on the horse so, put the bit onto the bridle then hold it up to the side of the horse's face. Then put the top of the headpiece level with the top of the horse's head (poll) and the mouthpiece of the bit level with the corner of the mouth. Next adjust the bridle to fit. The cheekpieces should be adjusted, so that the bit lies in the correct position in the horse's mouth, i.e. leaving a little wrinkle at each corner of the mouth. Do not fit the bit to high, so that the horse appears to be grinning. Do not fit the bit too low, so that the bit hits the horse's teeth.
Established in the late eighteenth century (1700s) the Eldonian brand is one of the original and most respected names in riding hardware throughout the equestrian world. Eldonian is owned and marketed by Jeffries, under whose supervision only the finest stainless steel is used, to manufacture bits in a carefully-controlled engineering environment. This ensures that Eldonian stainless steel hardware meets the exacting standards of quality, strength, reliability and safety demanded by today's discerning riders.

Dear Sara and Paul, The items, ref. 14846624, reached me safely on 21st, Aug. Thank you very much.
The lock and hasp are for my "i santi" briefcase purchased in Manila, Philippines, in 1994. Long time I was looking for same lock and hasp, but I could not find. Happily, thanks to the internet, I finally found them on your website. The Italian lock for the briefcase bought in Philippines, travels from The United Kingdom to Japan. Nice story!
I registered on your website. I am looking forward to see you on your web store. Thank you for your co-operation.

Just wanted to say many thanks for your help this morning with the Barbour Jacket. My mum will be thrilled to know we've managed to secure one for my Dad. Service was fantastic. Will recommend the site / shop.

Dear Sara and Paul, The part arrived safely last week - thank you for this and for your email. I am so pleased to have found this part, and will look at registering on your site. It is good not only to get the right part to mend an expensive handbag (£1,200 quote from the makers!) but also to find a good business that is family run. I have liked you on Facebook and if I am ever in the area, will come in.
I have already told a friend about you, she was very interested.
