FinesseBridles® Join Well-Known Equestrian Distributors Zebra Products

Cutting edge Danish brand FinesseBridles®, exquisite designers of superior bridles with a fantastic ethos has been brought to the UK thanks to well-known distributors Zebra Products. 
Made from vegetable tanned leather, FinesseBridles® are designed with a very unique, specialised headpiece expertly created to distribute and reduce the regional pressure on your horses neck from the headpiece.

Engineers and other experts are behind the unique padding material used in all FinesseBridles® that originates from the technology applied in hospital mattresses used for bed-bound patients. It is a uniquely designed fibre-material that allows the blood-flow to remain intact in the parts of the body which are in contact with the material.

Helle Dueholm, founder of FinesseBridles® said: “I am delighted to be working with Zebra Products and look forward to working with the team.”
FinesseBridles® are the only ones in the world that have gone through scientific testing on a University level. In 2020, the University of Copenhagen carried out in depth testing on 12-15 horses looking at the muscle functions and pain tolerance on a horse’s whole body whilst wearing bridles. 
Associate Professor Dr Adrian Harrison, DVM Emilie Gertz and DVM Katja Gebara and their team concluded that FinesseBridles® were highly recommended for the highest welfare of horses. Their results proved that horses muscles were much more relaxed when wearing a FinesseBridle with an even distribution of pressure on both sides of the horses head, with fewer ‘pain-strikes’ (pain-strike defined as muscle overload during work)monitored compared to when wearing a standard bridle.
Helle said: “Proven to be anatomically correct, FinesseBridles® simply put are the best you can do for your horse, this is magnificent undeniable proof of higher welfare for all horses.”
“When investing in a FinesseBridle, you aren’t investing in a regular piece of equipment, you are investing in comfort.”
FinesseBridlesâ are chosen by well known-riders including Olympic, European Championships and World Championships medal-winning British dressage rider Lottie Fry, Olympic dressage rider Cathrine Laudrup-Dufour and International dressage rider Annabella Pidgely, 
Said Lottie Fry: “I have the Cassidy bridle from FinesseBridlesâ, which is a  very elegant model with round stitched leather.
“I use the bridle on as many horses as possible and have found that it makes the horses more free in their movements and in turn they come lighter to the hand, which gives me a feeling of a better balance.”
Said Simon Middleton of Zebra Products: “We are delighted to be working with FinesseBridles® and are looking forward to bringing this unique product to the UK market.
“There is a great range of bridles with superb quality including Bridle Cassidy, Cayenne Double Bridle to the Bridle Spirit, there is something for every horse.”
