The new noseband has been made to fulfill the need for a more stylish drop noseband, following the increase in popularity of this traditional style. Particularly popular with dressage riders, the Patent Padded Drop Noseband matches Kate Negus’s Patent Browband, but also looks great with SR Diamante and Diamante Browbands to complete the look.
“Bridlework goes through trends and fashions and we do our best to respond to these,” says Julia Andrews from Kate Negus Saddlery. “We’ve always carried a plain padded drop noseband, but we were getting asked for a patent version, particularly from dressage riders, so that’s what we created. The black version is a stock item with the chestnut being made to order. Because we make all our bridlework in the UK, the lead time is only three weeks on made to order pieces, so it’s not a long wait!”
The Patent Padded Drop Noseband is made using English leather and has double buckles as standard. The quality of the leather is second to none and the patent trim across the front of the noseband really enhances the piece. This noseband attaches straight onto a Grand Prix Headpiece, and can also be used with an additional sliphead for bridles with regular headpieces.
The Patent Padded Drop Noseband is available in black and chestnut, in cob and full, and prices start from £80.
