What is a Noseband?
The noseband on a driving bridle is far more critical than on a riding bridle. A horse should never be driven without a noseband as its primary function is to keep the cheek pieces together against the face to prevent bulging. If the cheek pieces are allowed to bulge this could lead to the horse catching a glimpse of the vehicle behind it with potentially catastrophic results. The fit should be slightly tighter than a riden bridle but not so tight as to cause discomfort. A flash convertor may also be added to the noseband to help keep the horse's mouth closed preventing bit evasion and tongue over bit problems.
