The Cavesal® is a bridle that can be used for both groundwork and bitless riding. It is a multifunctional bridle.
In 2014, I developed the Cavesal® out of passion and love for horses. Since then, the bridle has proven itself to be a multifunctional tool, and we have received excellent reviews from all over the world.
The great advantage of the Cavesal® is that you only need one bridle for everything you want to do with your horse. It is a combination of the "caveson" and the "bosal," which gives you different options for attaching your lead rope, lunge, or reins, depending on what you want to do with your horse. You can use it for leading, lunging, groundwork, and riding.
The Cavesal® is an excellent bridle made of high-quality leather and designed to be functional and adjustable for every horse. It is important to ensure that each individual piece of leather used to assemble the bridle fits your horse's head perfectly. Due to my passion for horses, I have spent years searching for a bridle that can fit any horse or pony, from Shetland ponies to heavy draft horses. There are so many different types of horses, with different noses, heads, sensitivities, and trainers. ;-)
It is essential to understand that even a bitless bridle can cause harm if it does not fit optimally. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure that the noseband of the Cavesal® has the correct length and position on the nose bone. The noseband can be too high or too low. If it is too long, it will slide too deep on the nose bone, causing discomfort for your horse during groundwork. If it is too high, it can be very irritating to the salivary glands.
However, it is not just the noseband that is important. Each individual piece must fit and have the correct length. Therefore, it is important to measure your horse's head so that we can make the Cavesal® fit perfectly.
How to measure your horse's head when you want to buy a cavesal: go to our webshop and find the picture to know which sizes to measure.
By taking the above into account, we prevent the Cavesal® from being uncomfortable for:
- Salivary glands
- Neck vertebrae
- Mobility of the lower jaw
- Sensitive mouth and nose hair
- Mouth wounds
Pascale and I are here to help you find the right Cavesal® for your horse so that your horse feels comfortable. We have other options to help you in exceptional cases. If you are unsure, please ask us for advice.
