What variants are there in a cavesson?
The cavesson is a bridle with three rings on the noseband made of leather, biothane, or nylon and can be used with or without a bit. The cavesson noseband can be without metal in the noseband or with an iron chain. In the Academic art of riding, a cavesson with chain is often used; this cavesson is also called the Academic cavesson. The cavesson with a chain does not have a sharper effect than a cavesson without metal. It is still the rider's hand that determines the impact.
Lunge with the cavesson.
The cavesson is an excellent tool to use while longeing. By longeing with a cavesson, the horse is not disturbed in the sensitive horse's mouth, but aids are given on the nasal bone and behind the horse's ears.
Lunge line attachment to the cavesson
The lunge line or lead rope is attached to the middle ring from the cavesson for lunging; it allows you to guide your horse forward by opening your arm holding the lunge line. With your other arm, you hold a whip to guide the horse forward toward your leading arm. If your horse's head is going too low, you can ask your horse to lift its head by moving the lineup and move forward again.
Attaching training reins to the cavesson
If you lunge your horse with an auxiliary rein, you can attach it to the outer rings from the cavesson. The horse will not be disturbed in the mouth.
