No bri­dle? No prob­lem...

Horse & Hound - - News Insider -

WHO needs a bri­dle? Not Ben Stock­ley, who sur­prised fol­low­ers of the Bices­ter with Whad­don Chase when he turned up with his horse sport­ing a head­col­lar.

It was not de­lib­er­ate on Ben’s part, he just for­got his bri­dle.

“I was run­ning late be­cause I put the wrong post­code into my sat nav, and there wasn’t time to rum­mage through friends’ lor­ries for a bri­dle, so I just thought, ‘sod it’, and hopped on,” he con­fessed.

Also seen sport­ing the look re­cently was US rider Me­lanie Fer­rioWise and her horse Wings (“Vlad”), who com­peted in a $10,000 jump­ing class in just a neck­strap.

“I didn’t do it for at­ten­tion,” Me­lanie said. “I did it for Vlad.”
