Berney’s handcrafted mexican grakle noseband, also referred to as a cross noseband, is made from our most premium bridle leather giving it a long lasting polished finish. This noseband has metal rings on the joint at the cheekbone instead of leather. This noseband crosses from the top of the cheekbone on one side, down over the nose to the chin groove on the opposite side. It then passes under their chin and crosses back up over their nose to the cheekbone on the opposite side. It reminds the horse to keep its mouth closed and prevents him from crossing his jaw. Its design allows more expansion of the nostrils, which is preferable for horses at high performance levels.
