Ergonomic Duo Noseband - Black Noseband

Only 2 left in stock!

This Ergonomic Duo (Micklem Style) Black English Leather noseband is part of our popular Gel Snaffle range. This noseband can either be used on its own with a standard head piece and cheek straps, or as a combination noseband using the included bit hangers, making it a versatile addition to your collection. Please see pictures for examples of both styles of use.

Padded with our unique gel, with use this noseband will mould to your horse’s face for reduced pressure on sensitive areas of the face.

  • The infraorbital nerve exits the skull in the area above the cheek bone. The diagonal section allows the noseband to sit lower on the nose than a standard noseband which effectively avoids this sensitive nerve.
  • The sensitive tissue of the horse's cheek can be pushed into the teeth by a standard noseband. The forward cut of the noseband, and the use of a jowl strap, means there is no pressure over this area.
  • The jowl strap allows the cheek pieces to sit well clear of the eyes without the need to over tighten.
  • The flash strap is offset, rather than meeting at the bridge of the nose like a standard flash. This avoids the soft areas above the nostrils and ensures there is no restriction on the horse's ability to breath.

All of our nosebands are double buckle nosebands, buckling on both sides of the crown piece. This helps to create a perfect fit and also reduces the volume of leather passing over the poll, reducing pressure and increasing comfort. This noseband is a crank noseband, meaning that the closure of the noseband folds back on itself before buckling.

This noseband has buckles designed to attach to a 4/8" wide strap. All Flexible Fit bridles have a standard 4/8" wide noseband attachment. If you are planning to use the noseband with the bit hangers, rather than with standard cheek straps, you will need to ensure you are purchasing the correct headpiece. 

If you are buying a noseband for a non-Flexible Fit bridle that does not have attachments for double buckle nosebands, you may need to purchase one of our noseband converters.

Excellent Quality, but a Smidge Large

The leather quality is fabulous, but I'd say the sizing is a hair large. I bought this for a 16h appaloosa with a generic horse-sized head, but needed a cob size in this noseband (attached to a horse sized crownpiece) for the noseband to not be too wide. Luckily, it's easy to mix/match sizes with this company.
