Bridle

Bridles are very important when it comes to riding.

Here are the bridle parts:

English Bridle

The English bridle often has a throat latch, brow band, nose band and cheek piece to go along with the head stall.  English bridle has connected reins that are often not very long.  There are many types of English bridles and styles of nosebands.

Western Bridle:

The Western bridle often only has a headstall.  However, some western bridles do have a throat latch, brow band, and a nose band.  Western bridles have a variety of crownpieces.  There is the traditional crown piece that just goes over the the poll like English bridle.  There is the one ear crown piece or “slip ear” where there is a loop over the ear.  There is also a split ear where there is two loops that go over each each.
