A Grackle noseband (often called a figure-8 noseband) is meant to keep the horse from crossing his jaw, and opening his mouth, and evading the action of the bit.
It is often used in fast-paced equestrian sports, such as: Show Jumping, Cross Country and Racing.
If fitted correctly it is supposed to leave the horse’s nostrils clear so they can breathe easier.
