UNITED STATES BATENT OFFICE.
IMPROVEMENT IN ERIDLES.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 50,822, dated November 7, 1865.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, S. B. HARTMAN, otMillersville, in the county of Lancaster and State ot` Pennsylvania, have invented a new an d useful Improvement in Bridles; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereot', which will enable those skilled in the art to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanyingdrawiug, formingpart of this specilication.
The drawing represents a side view of a' horse with my improvements applied to it.
Thisinvention relates to anew and improved safety attachment for bridles, and is an improvement on a bridle for which Letters Patent were granted to me bearing date June 28th, 1864.
The object of the presentinvent-ion is to simplify and render less cumbersome the device as originally arranged and at the same time retain allits advantages and possess the additional and important one ot allowing martingales to be used.
A represents the cheek-straps of thebridle, B the throat-latch, and C the check-rein strap, the ends ot' which are secured-in the rings cof the bit D.
E represents the ordinary reins, which, as usual, pass through the terrets F on the saddie G and through the martingale-rings o o, and are attached to the rings a of the bit.
H represents supplemental lines or reins, which pass through or are fitted in the reins E andare allowed to work or draw loosely therein, the reins H passing out ofthe reins E just beyond or in the vicinity ot' the guides or rings c on the hames .l of the collar, and are attached to the ends ofthe cheek-straps A, which pass through the rings a ot' the bit D, as shown clearly in the drawing'.
When the horse is`doclle or perfectly tractable the reins E are used, and the ends of these reins are provided with loops or bulbs d for the convenience of grasping them, the supplemental reins H extending through the reins E, so that they may be grasped when necessary. This is only required when the animal becomes restive or unmanageable, and it will be seen that, in consequence ot' the reins H heilig attached to the cheek-straps A and the latter passing through the rings (t ot' the bit D, thatin pullingthe reins H the bitD will be drawn backward inthe mouth ot' the horse and operate in such a manner as to eifectually check him. In t'act, theaction ofthe bitwill be such that the horse will have to succumb, as the bit will be drawn forcibly back into the angles of the mouth. l/Vhen the horse is checked and brought back to his work the bit, by pulling on the reins E, will be drawn down to its usual or proper position. Thus by this modilication l obtain all of the advantages ofthe original invention and greatly simplify the device. No additional straps are required, simply supplemental lines or reins, which are connected to the cheek-straps passing through the rings at the end ot' the bit. The martingales may also be used in the same way as with the ordinary bridlcs, and the cost otl manufacture will not materially exceed that ot' the ordinary bridle and reins.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
l. A bridle supplied with a safety attachment formed by the employment or use ot' supplemental reins connected directly to the checkstraps, which pass through the rings ot' the bit, substantially in the manner as herein set forth.
2. The tting or placing ofthe supplemental lines or reins within the ordinary reins, when said supplemental lines or reins are connected to the cheek-straps of the bridle and the former pass through the rings ot' the bit, substantially as set forth.
The above specification ot' my invention signed by me this 8th day of September, 1865.
S. B. HARTMAN.
