The taper gauge serves three purposes to:
1. Accurately measure the noseband tightness
2. Provide a guideline for 3 different bit sizes
3. Measure curb shank length
How to Use:
The video shows an example of how to measure the tightness of the noseband. You slide the taper gauge under the noseband on the horses nose. The taper gauge should be able to slide under to the 2nd measurement line as indicated in the diagram.
The ISES taper gauge comes in green and is made out of durable plastic.
