The all-leather snaffle bridle Atherstone was designed with Olivier Lepage, former vet to the French equestrian team. Its wide, rounded headpiece in soft leather spreads the weight over a larger area thus avoiding any tightness. Its noseband designed to the same principle brings comfort to the horse and thereby a better understanding of the rider’s demands.
Handmade in extra-slow vegetable leather.
This natural grain leather come from two French known worldwide for luxury leather.
The extra-slow vegetable leather is tanned by craftsmen for 12 months. It is the only one, thanks to the slowness of the tanning process, to unite two normally opposing, but necessary, suppleness and solidity.
The natural leather has been chosen for the softness and comfort it brings to the horse.
It develops a patina with time.
The all-leather snaffle bridle Atherstone can be completed, if you wish, by rubber reins, hunter (rubber inside) or plaited. Comes with a removable noseband.
The buckles are in stainless nickled brass.
Delivered in a special bridle cover of cotton canvas and Guibert box.
