Design & Fitting
The Rambo Micklem Multibridle and Competition bridles were designed by William Micklem who is a successful trainer and a breeder of event horses in Ireland.
The Micklem Multibridle is designed to be an all in one bridle incorporating a head collar, a bit less bridle, as well as a lunge cavesson and a normal bridle. The Micklem Competition bridle is just a bridle.
Both bridles are shaped to the horses head allowing room for ears and shaped round the cheekbone. The noseband sits slightly lower on the nose than a normal cavesson but it doesn’t obstruct the airways of the nose and is designed not to be fitted tightly around the mouth. There isn’t a throat lash just a strap under the cheekbone, this shouldn’t be fitted tightly! The bit clips are an option and when they are clipped onto the bit, they reduced movement of the bit in the horse’s mouth.
The Multi Bridle only comes with one set of bit straps whereas the Competition Bridle comes with two sets. There are 2 sets of bit clips supplied with both bridles.
The Micklem Multi Bridle and Competition Bridles are both legal to use in national affiliated competition WITHOUT the bit clips.
The Micklem Competition Bridle & the Micklem Multi Bridle are legal in National & International (FEI) classes WITHOUT the bit clips.
