Shall I get decked out in patent top boots with bling along the top, with patent spur straps containing diamontes on both the straps AND the spurs, a full patent bridle with of course BIG bling on both brow and nose band?
I wonder how much saddle tite you would need to stay in a patent saddle? :P

Oh heck, maybe THAT is the purpose of Western Dressage?
Gives us Dressage queens a chance to break out of the boring black and white, or *gasp* if you're brave like me, navy and white!!! And get ourselves into some major bling. I wish Dressage saddles had all the snazzy silver work like Western saddles, how cool!

I still struggle with anything black, let alone patent.
I'm very traditional when it comes to tack I like my dark havana leather

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

I'm going to break the trend and say that I have a patent bridle (nose and brow band), with rolled leather cheek pieces. It looks fab on my boy though, as he is that flashy blood bay with the four white socks and white blaze, with a nice fine head that is steady in the contact. I think it looks fab on him, and it suits his attention seeking personality too.

Then again, I don't compete at high level dressage - just low level, my main thing is eventing, where I won't be judged quite the same. The other thing to bear in mind with patent is maintenance - you can't run the risk of letting your horse itch on anything in a patent noseband, and cleaning it needs to be done with water and then patent polish, not saddle soap or leaner cleaner/oil as it will ruin the patent.

Not going to lie, I do have an alternative brow band and noseband for this bridle, for those showing shows where I really can't get away with patent. But I like the option.

Minstrel, can you put a photo up of your horse in his patent bridle? My gelding is blood bay as well, with 2 hind socks and a star/snip. Would love to see patent on the same colour horse as him! I'm still umming and ahhing over the patent noseband! It's not a thick noseband, so not mega blingy.
Hell I love bridle shopping, I need to win the lotto so I can buy a whole shed full of them :P

I want patent leather boots for competitions. Not sold on it for bridles, although on Ro who has a lot of white on his face it is tough to find anything blingy that works on him. A patent leather swoop or V browband might actually look nice.
A friend of mine has a patent leather noseband from 15 or 20 years ago that actually looks wonderful on her mare.
