BRIDLES...

Be Kind To Ears (BKTE) Bridles...

Be Kind To Ears (BKTE) Bridles were developed with the Mule and Donkey in mind, so as to easily and gently accomodate their beautiful long ears without having to bend them while bridling.

The poll piece has a snap clip which allows the entire poll piece to be opened to place behind the ears and then snap closed, so that the ears don't have to be touched or bent.

The brow bands have a small buckle on them so that they are adjustable to fit more animals. Many mules, and most donkeys, have larger foreheads than do horses and these bridles can be adjusted to fit any one of them.

All BKTE bridles are made in various sizes to accomodate any size equine. All can be custom made for the same price as the standard sized ones.

All hardware is solid brass (or stainless steel if solid brass is not available), and all stitching is guaranteed for as long as you own the item.
