Best raw materials & excellent craftsmanship
For many years, Kieffer has been sourcing its bridle leather from the best Italian tanneries. We use cowhides exclusively for the manufacture of our bridles. The bridle leather is vegetable-tanned. This means that only natural and environmentally easily degradable tanning agents may be used to make the hides durable and supple with ultimate strength.
It is a very sophisticated and time-consuming processing method to produce leather which meets Kieffer’s high quality requirements. Only the particularly soft padded elements on the bridle are made from smooth goat leather, since this leather is supple and soft but also sturdy and hard-wearing.
Leather is a natural product but with correct care, it offers a long life of service in the most diverse uses.
Available in many sizes
Kieffer snaffle and double bridles are available in various sizes according to our models; M-Pony - medium-sized, L-Pony - large ponies, Cob, Full, Extra Full
and Cold Blood horses.
All snaffle bridles are fitted with webbed reins whereas double bridles with leather reins.
Fittings and buckles
Kieffer uses 100 % rustproof fittings and buckles. They come in matching colours according to model, either in a chrome or brass coloured finish. Kieffer does not use cheap iron hardware.
All Kieffer crownpieces have a standard width of 25 mm, whereas the straps for the cheek pieces and throat lash are 13 mm wide each. The throat lash on most models is with buckle-fastening on both sides to allow for a better fit also on horses with shorter heads.
This standard crownpiece from the Kieffer classic snaffle bridle collection 'Belinda' is not lined and adorns the horse‘s head with a simple, classic look.
This crownpiece is a refinement of the classic 'Belinda' model whereby the headstrap of the noseband is embedded in the crownpiece for an elegant visual effect. The soft padding provides ultimate comfort. This crownpiece is protected by a registered design.
The proven advantages of the 'Ergonomic' crownpiece have been complemented in this 'Comfort' model with an innovative ear cut-back design, which, depending on the horse’s physique, will provide increased comfort. This crownpiece is protected by a registered design.
This crownpiece includes all the characteristics of the model 'Comfort' but in addition to the adjustable throat lash the noseband can also be easily adapted on both sides via another strap attached to the crownpiece.
The headpiece has a wide, anatomic fit and is cut away at the ear to allow for extra movement in this sensitive area, and to reduce poll pressure. To further increase comfort, the headpiece is softly padded. The noseband fastens to the headpiece on both sides for ease of fitting.
Like the anatomic crownpiece, the curved one also has a wide, anatomic fit and is cut away at the ear to allow for extra movement in this sensitive area, and to reduce poll pressure. To further increase comfort, the headpiece has a cutout in front and is softly padded. The noseband fastens to the headpiece on both sides for ease of fitting.
