A Bradoon is a bit that is used in conjunction with a Weymouth bit in a double bridle. The Bradoon is a snaffle, though they are lighter and smaller than typical training snaffles. They are lighter both because there is an increased need for space in the mouth with two bits, but also because, in theory, you should need less metal to have an impact with a horse trained in a double bridle. You usually see a loose ring Bradoon in a double bridle, though it’s not unusual to see an eggbutt or other snaffle style’s as well. Bradoon’s can come with a number of different mouthpieces designed to make the horse more comfortable in the tongue or on the bars.
