Rowland Black Snaffle Leather English Bridle with Reins and Stainless Steel Hardware


Rowland Black Snaffle Leather Bridle with Reins and Stainless Steel Hardware is a fundamental piece of tack in English riding, valued for its simplicity, effectiveness, and timeless elegance. This English snaffle bridle made of leather is a classic and versatile piece of tack used across many English riding disciplines, including dressage, show jumping, eventing, and pleasure riding. Here’s a detailed description:


Headstall (Crownpiece): The main strap that goes over the horse’s head, connecting all parts of the bridle.

Browband: A strap that runs across the horse’s forehead, preventing the bridle from slipping back.

Cheekpieces: Straps that run down the sides of the horse’s face, connecting the headstall to the bit.

Throatlash (Throatlatch): A strap that goes under the horse’s throat, helping to keep the bridle in place.

Noseband (Cavesson): A strap that encircles the horse’s nose and is attached to the cheek-pieces. It helps keep the horse’s mouth closed and provides some control.

The metal piece that goes in the horse’s mouth, attached to the cheek-pieces. In a snaffle bridle, this is typically a simple, single-jointed snaffle bit.

Straps that run from the bit to the rider’s hands, used to control the horse. They are usually made of leather and can have rubber grips for better handling.


Leather Quality: High-quality English bridle leather, often vegetable-tanned, providing durability, suppleness, and a classic appearance. It may be padded and stitched for added comfort and strength.

Finish: The leather is typically smooth and may be dyed in traditional colors such as black, brown, or havana.


Design Features

Stitching: Often features fine, even stitching for durability and aesthetic appeal. Raised and padded elements are common in higher-end models for additional comfort and style.

Buckles and Fittings: Usually made of stainless steel or brass, these fittings provide adjust-ability and ensure the bridle stays securely in place.


Fit and Adjust-ability: Multiple adjustment points allow the bridle to be fitted precisely to the horse’s head, ensuring comfort and effective communication between horse and rider.

Comfort: Properly fitted, the leather snaffle bridle distributes pressure evenly and avoids common pressure points, making it suitable for long periods of use.
