I’ve been looking around at lunge cavessons on and off for a few years and honestly am still kind of unsure. What is the functional difference between the metal designs in the nose piece? I’ve seen ones where it’s a solid metal part, a few with 3-4 metal pieces inside, and also chains.
I have googled things to try and understand which is the best but seems to be pretty mixed opinions from everywhere. Is there a certain kind that’s best for specific uses? I do a lot of in-hand work and some lunge work so I’m trying to avoid the really bulky ones. I’m also worried with the cavessons that have solid metal pieces or the 3-4 jointed pieces will be too cumbersome for the in-hand work? If it makes a difference, I’m not working with anyone who’s unruly or hauls like a freight train but I do want to make sure I end up with whichever is the most appropriate.
Currently am using a leather lunge cavesson which is kind of a nightmare, very awkward. Initially got it as I was hesitant to use anything metal in the cavesson noseband but it’s ridiculous.
