The Training range of products offer the look that traditionalists prefer, with all the benefits of synthetic materials for which Zilco is so reknowned.
Named after the 1931 Grand National winner who wore one. Sometimes referred to as a "Figure 8" noseband. Grackle nosebands offer similar benefits as a drop noseband, but are said to be less constrictive to the horse's breathing because the nose pressure is localised higher up the face.
A correctly fitted grackle noseband will have the centre piece (where the straps cross) sitting approximately in line with the end of the horse's cheekbone.
This model is made from matt finish synthetic strapping that has a more leather like appearance, and features a traditionally styled fleece pad at the pressure point.
