Sorry not to reply sooner - and I have an awkward confession to make. I can't find any close-up photos of Fitz in his patent bridle, and I had to have him put to sleep at the start of this week after an accident so I can't really go and get some.... I realised when I looked at my post I was still using present tense talking about him - I really apologise!
My other horse, Geoff, is a bright bay with a white star and snip - not quite as red as Fitz was, very slightly more orangey, but he is a similar colour, if that helps I can get a photo of him in it for you to see. I haven't competed him yet though, so he's never been in it - will be an excuse to see how it looks on him! Fitz has a much finer, prettier head than Geoff so we'll see whether it looks quite as smart on him...
Sorry for making that a little awkward :S and here's a colour comparison of Fitz and Geoff so you can see what I mean:
