With mounting pressure from the public, is it time to change?

The FEI noseband protocol is in the Stewards handbook for dressage and it states:

“It is the Chief Steward’s responsibility to ensure that the tightness of horses’ nosebands is checked at each FEI Dressage event.

The noseband check is part of the tack control when the horse is leaving the competition arena after having finished the test. One and the same steward must conduct the noseband check for all horses entered in the same competition. The tightness check must be done with the steward’s index finger between the horse’s cheek and the noseband.
