Snaffle Bits

BSF offers a stellar selection of dressage snaffle bits sized to FIT your friesian, in varying widths and styles, 5"-6" wide. If you are purchasing your friesian from us,  and purchasing a bridle or tack package, we know which bit  is best for YOUR horse, and will include it on your new bridle. Let us help you find the perfect dressage bit for your horse! Many of our horses use a double jointed snaffle, which has 3 pieces in the mouth of the horse. This makes the V-shape turn into a U-shape, which is slightly more anatomical. The sides can still be moved independently, so it works the same way as a single jointed.

Fitting Information

The Friesian horse is generally wider in the back than a warmblood, or many other breeds, and the Friesian horse has bigger ribs and they stand more round. After numerous requests to sell our tack WITH our horses, we decided to design, develop, and import saddles and bridles designed specifically for our horses. That way we COULD sell each horse’s tack WITH the horse! We noticed over the years, some of our Friesians who we used normal saddles on, with a smaller tree size, were sometimes getting back and shoulder problems.

The Sterling saddle is extremely comfortable for our horses, as well as their riders. This saddle is recommended by physiotherapists. The size of the saddle is for the most common size of the Friesian horse. The size is exactly the same in inches as the original Fryso saddle, but this saddle is less expensive and more durable!
