ANATOMICAL RAISED PLAIN HANOVERIAN CRANK - HAVANA NOSEBAND
This raised Havana English Leather noseband is part of our popular Gel Snaffle range. Padded with our unique gel, with use this noseband will mold to your horse’s face for reduced pressure on sensitive areas of the face.
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 style of closure can sometimes have a bad reputation, however these nosebands can and should be done loosely. When buckled correctly, this type of closure provides an even pressure over the entire surface of the noseband which helps to remove any possible pressure points and increase overall comfort for the horse.
This noseband is cut in our anatomical style. It is widest at the bridge of the horses nose, to effectively reduce pressure over this sensitive area, and tapers off to a narrower width at the sides of the face. This reduces the amount of noseband that sits behind the bit, helping to alleviate any possible irritation involving the cheekpiece, bit, or cheeks of the horse.
This Hanoverian noseband can have the flash completely taken off, however the small tab that holds the flash remains on the noseband. This is a perfect option for riders that always or usually use a flash as it provides a smaller, neater connection.
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.
Please note: our Havana leather is very dark brown in colour.
