During basic training and groundwork should reach as precisely as possible - especially on the horse's sensitive head. Most nosebands used for this training unfortunately slip back and forth on the nose/head and make precise 'on the spot' aids impossible.
That is why Barefoot have been thinking and developed a nose piece which incorporates a sturdy, bendy wire: The noseband is shaped around this wire and can therefore be fitted to each individual horse's head. The nose piece stay in better position and does not slip.
The Barefoot noseband 'Shape-It Soft' is wide, comfortably padded and even suitale for bitless riding: The reins are buckled to the outer rings.
We recommned using the noseband with the Barefoot 'Physio' Bridle
The noseband can, however, also be used with a standard bridle.
