Why Is It Square? Because Air!

Why Is It Square? Because Air!

With horses, fit is important. You want a saddle that conforms to your horse's back, so there are no pressure points. You want a bridle that holds the bit in the horse's mouth in just the right position. Your horse's shoes need to match their hoof shape.

So when you see a big, square muzzle that we promise will be comfortable on your horse's face, you are skeptical. Why on earth would you put a square muzzle on your horse's round nose? 

One word: AIR.

The square design gives your horse room to breathe because it puts lots of open space in the corners around the nostrils. A round design, on the other hand, collapses over the nostrils, blocking air and making it more difficult for your horse to breathe. So why square? Because Air!
