I think Zeus looked sharp in his figure eight bridle... it was kept loose too.
But it just wasn't necessary anymore.

I do really like the figure 8's. =] I only use the flash because it does complete the look. I can easily fit a finger in there. It's simply for decoration, haha. Eventually, I'll buy a breast plate too, because I like the look of that as well. =]

If I do use a noseband, I leave it loose. Honestly, I have ridden western for years, as well as english, but my western headstalls really outnumber my english. I enjoy sporting a little bling bling with my english saddle, snaffle bit, and laced reins, mainly just to drive my trainer nuts and to avoid buying more headstalls.

Yo, nothing wrong with a little bling. The bridle in my picture above is an exact match for my double with the same bling on both the browband and noseband.

Did you know you can buy stirrups with rhinestones on them? I'm all about the bling. I don't care if nobody sees me ride, I want my horse to look good. =]

I love that this is now a "bling" thread, haha.

I do like figure 8's as well, they are sharp looking.

You can see how loose it is in this picture, the cavesson straps aren't even touching his nose and the "flash" part, if you will, is so loose you can see daylight :P

I make sure there is about a finger width between cavesson and the horse's face...I never tighten it so much that he can't move his jaw a bit.

I like the look of the figure 8 too...and bling...don't even get me started! I have so many gorgeous bridles, JUST to make my horse(s) look good, even if no one else sees 'em!!! Lol!!!

Justdressageit, a question about the fittingof your figure 8? I've never used one and rarely seen them used, but does the top part of your noseband finish too high up your horse's head? In that pic it looks like it finishes just under his eye and goes down over his cheek, shouldn't nosebands rest between the cheek and the mouth, not over the cheek.
