The DP Saddlery Cavesson Ecuyer is made of all-natural leather that is free of harmful chemicals and rigged plastics to guarantee the best quality leather for training your horse. The supple nappa leather is comfortable yet durable, ensuring reliable long-lasting use that will fit nicely around your horse's face.

The three Stainless Steel rings can be hooked onto a lunge rope or attached to reins. The nose piece is comprised of a metal plate that is covered in soft black nappa leather and softly padded for a proper fit. 

The Cavesson is ideally suited for Classical Dressage riders or Baroque and Academic style riders to better their skills and increase their communication with their horse. It can be used underneath a bridle for alternative training purposes. It's not too heavy that it would consume the entire space. In this case, use two outer rings to attach reins. You can also use it to lunge your horse by attaching a lunge line to the center nose ring.

Thanks to the three adjusting leather straps, the soft leather Cavesson accommodates all horse breeds ranging from Arabian to Draft horses.

To ensure the riding experience, we suggest that the nose piece should rest three fingers below the jaw while the jaw strap should lay securely under the jawbone to prevent any sliding.

Nice cavesson

High quality, well priced tack. It arrived in a timely manner.

Grace T.
Essential Lungeing Tool

Excellent craftsmanship and more light, yet durable, than most cavessons that are on the market. The cavesson is designed to not impinge on the facial nerve or the eyes. I am very pleased with my purchase.
