The bridle I have been showing Cinny in is well, an antique and looks like it. So, I'm opting to buy him a new one. I really really love the one I work him in on a daily basis. It's a cheaper brand, but I love the feel of the leather, it wears well,etc. My last 3 bridles have been this brand and the only reason I don't have the first two is because they went to other owners, who also love them.
So here is my dilemma. I found a style that I really really really like a lot by the same maker. I think it would look fab on him and the browband looks easy to add some bling too. But, they only come in Havanna. I have always been picky with my bridles matching the color of my saddle.
Is it really that tacky to have a Havanna bridle with a black saddle in the dressage ring?
