UK patent app: GB2517150
Commissioned by the BEF to improve the comfort of Team GB horses during the long journey to Rio, this headcollar is based on two and half years’ of scientific research.
It features the Fairfax headpiece which significantly reduces pressure and enables the horse’s swallow mechanism to operate comfortably when eating & drinking during travel.
The Rio Headcollar is:
- Cushioned with pressure-absorbing Prolite on the headpiece, cheek pieces and noseband
- 30% lighter than most other travel headcollars generally used
- Hand made in our Walsall factory from Sedgwick's first selection leather using quality brass fittings
An engraved brass nameplate is included with each headcollar
