Please allow competitors the option of riding without a noseband on their bridle.
Do you ride noseband-free already? Do you wish you could compete without the noseband requirement?
While the FEI makes concessions for 6 types of nosebands (see page 22 of the Stewards Manual 2015 Annexes), there is currently no rule allowing competitors to ride without a noseband.
I’ve already ditched the noseband on all of my bridles, it’s been nearly 7 years since I removed the last noseband from my daily tack. Have you done the same? If you haven’t already, are you ready to ditch the noseband?
