Assembling a Dressage Bridle?

Anyone know where I can find a diagram on how to put my bridle together?

I bought a new bridle a few weeks ago, my trainer attempted to go over it with me when she fitted it on my horse but as my horse decided it was the perfect time to throw a tantrum, she just ended up doing it all herself, which was fine until the stitching on one the straps failed this morning. Tack shop gave me a new one tonight but all the pieces were separate and just zip tied together and since I spent 20 minutes convincing the person at the tack store that it was a bridle NOT a harness, I wasn't about to ask her how to put it together!

I have most of it together, just lost on how to attach the portion with the noseband and flash to the rest of the bridle and if the hooks for the bit should be on the inside or outside.

It depends on the style of bridle. Some of them will have the noseband attachment over the head piece, others will go under.
The general rule as for which way hooks/buckles face : buckles face away from the horse, rounded hooks face towards the horse.

Is this a double bridle?

No, it's a single with a crank noseband which I think is now attached correctly. It looks right except not sure on if I have the reins correct.

You know what, if you went online and looked up a video on "how to put a bridle together" you will get a lot of videos. Youtube is fantastic for finding everything. I can't access the site from here right now, but if you have troubles, I can look it up for you later.

Cheers.
