FC01 Flat Nose Cavasson

To me a cavasson is an essential piece of equipment every horseperson should have in their tool box. Made of top quality harness leather, our flat cavasson has a 5/8" wide noseband on a 1/2" wide hanger and is available with your choice of solid brass or stainless steel hardware.

Note: A cavasson goes under the bridle and is used to prevent the horse from gaping it's mouth and evading bit pressure or to help keep a colt from getting their tongue over the bit. The crown strap should be adjusted so the cavasson hangs mid-point between the jaw and the bit and the noseband should be adjusted so it is snug but not over tight. When putting it on a young horse the first several times I leave at least a full finger's width between the noseband and the jaw so the colt doesn't feel trapped by it. Always remember to loosen the noseband before putting it on your horse and re-adjust it only after the bit is comfortably in it's mouth.
