The Kineton or Puckle noseband is a very effective noseband.
It differs from the drop noseband in that it does not close the mouth.
It consists of two metal loops with a connecting nose piece that is fully adjustable both ends. The centre of the nosepiece is usually reinforced with a metal strip.
Pressure is exerted on the horses nose immediately you take up the reins. When he keeps his head down and under control, the contact is light and so the pressure is minimal. However as soon as he lifts his head direc, strong pressure is put on to his nose which encourages him to refrain from doing so. It is a good device for "stargazers" ( those with a high head carriage. ) They soon learn that it is they who control the pressure by keeping their head down and so under the control of your hands, through the bit.
