No she doesn't have one. Sometimes my halter sits under the bridle in case I feel like riding with it, so the noseband was a pest.One of mine is in an ordinary cheap bridle with a nose band. The other is in the same but it has a flash on it. Not sure he likes the flash as he can't open his mouth. I am thinking of trialling without it. I'm also thinking of trying without a nose band. Although as hes a headshaker and wears a nose net I'm not sure about this one. But maybe I could do the noseband up loose. Am I right in think new forest that you don't use a noseband.
Personally myself I would ask the question, is it the bridle or the bit the horse doesn't like.
I've tried various bits on Billy, some he seems relaxed in, others he chomps on.
