I didn't know how long our browband was when my dog ate it off the bridle. So, I just guessed at 18". Yeah, might need to have a new one made soon. When I put the bridle on him yesterday, it seemed like it was a bit snug. *facepalm* There's a family who owns the pure Percheron filly that came from the same farm as Aires and the husband's dad does leather work and makes custom bridles and halters for Liberty (the filly). I'm thinking of asking how much it would be to make a nice custom bridle and halter for Aires for me so that I don't keep having to buy the made-in-India crap I have (my bridle is a piece of junk, really). I can't afford to have the local tack shop make me a custom bridle or halter (I asked and they want ~$130 for a custom bridle big enough for Aires and ~$100 for a halter *sigh*).

I bought this bridle on Ebay for Belle and LOVE it. It even fits the big belgian in the picture with my daughter who is 19.1hh. The quality is extremely heavy duty. I'm pretty sure this is the same exact one....it was amish made.

The first horse I had, Vinella. A Norwegian Dolehorse. I will never find a horse like that again :)

Vinella is way cute!

My horse is only half draft, so I hope I'm welcome to join the thread!
This is Ursula. She's a 6 year old, 17.1 hand, Shire/Thoroughbred mix.

A pic of me riding our 9 year old registered Belgian gelding, Charlie. We use him to give lessons & trail rides to people that have never ridden before, & he's AMAZING. Love riding drafts.
