    Please list as many anatomic/comfort bridles as you can. I'm shopping for myself and a friend. Thank you.

    I have an oversized Collegiate Comfitech -- It's Collegiate's version of the PSoS High Jump, but is USEF/USDF legal because it doesn't have metal in the nose piece.

    In the PS of Sweden one there is, which is why it isn't legal. It's to help the noseband keep its shape. The Collegiate one does not have metal in the noseband.

    The first post clearly says list as many as you can - which totally deserves the reply of Google it.

    Asking what is your favourite is a completely different question..

    Your first post said you wanted a list. Mooselady is right you can google that.

    There are few bridle manufacturers who don't offer some kind of anatomical option. So it would probably be easier to list the ones that don't have it.

    Pick a bridle company you like - odds are they will have something.

    If you have a budget or a specific discipline or color, size, shape you're looking for, then you'll get more help if you list what you're looking for, otherwise, even asking "what's your favourite" my answer will remain the same - google it. I guaranteed that every single anatomical bridle out there is *someones* favourite.
