Prevent poll sensitivity…

Is your horse particularly sensitive around the poll area? If he or she is then the the First Thought Equine Kinda headpiece may be  the solution to your problems…

As manufacturers of the WOW Saddle, we are dedicated to creating equestrian equipment that aids comfort levels in horses, leading to greater performance levels for the rider! The Kinda can be fitted to all standard bridles and features a padded base that increases pressure distribution. The normal bridle headpiece threads through a hidden channel at the top of the Kinda, for a smart, smooth appearance. The Kinda is ergonomically designed for a comfortable fit at the ears.

The product also helps to alleviate pressure from the ‘bridlepath’ section of mane behind the ears, which with a bridle headpiece on top, can cause discomfort. The Kinda has a channel running beneath it, like a saddle gullet, in which the trimmed section of mane can sit. The Kinda may also help prevent headshaking in horses that are sensitive to pressure at the poll and ears, and is useful for horses with big ears, whose headpieces are prone to pinching.

You can purchase the Kinda from First Thought Equine for just £49 in Black or Brown.

The Kinda

The Kinda is an innovative bridlewear headpiece that helps reduce poll pressure. It can be fitted with all standard bridles, and features a padded base that increases pressure distribution – the normal bridle headpiece threads through a hidden channel at the top of the Kinda, for a smart, smooth appearance. The Kinda is ergonomically designed for a comfortable fit at the ears.

Bridle bother?

Bridles can be an issue, and if ill fitting, can affect performance.

Ideally, pressure under the headpiece should be distributed over a wide area, rather than focussing on the sensitive poll area at the top of the horse’s head – particularly if a bit with leverage action is used!

It is highly likely that perceived equine behavioural issues such as being head-shy, or head-shaking, are linked to head discomfort – consider a bridle product that increases pressure distribution by utilising a wide padded base at the head piece, if your horse is sensitive. Try bridles that are ergonomically designed for a comfortable fit at the ears, and beware of keeping a ‘bridlepath’ of hair for the bridle to sit on, unless you can keep it very short – because a ‘stubbly’ bridlepath can cause discomfort and pressure.
