Western bridle while riding english?

I recently saw in a magazine a girl who had one champion at her show, but she was riding in a western bridle? She had english reins too I believe ..

I've always loved the look of western bridles .. So can you show with a western bridle and english saddle? Even if it wouldn't match as well .. it seemed that's what this girl was doing?

Can you scan the picture in so we can see what you are talking about?


I can not think of an occasion that it is OK to show in a western bridle in an English tack. Even in the HUS classes at breed shows where they are really riding Western in English tack it is all English tack.

I did it for years on trails. Never in the show ring though. I don't like western bridles but they were the only thing that fit Cougy that I had. He looked pretty cute in all that bling.

By western do you mean just without a noseband? I'm trying to picture this bridle :). If you mean no noseband, I'm not sure about rated shows, but my friend shows her Arab gelding in a bridle like that, but it's just schooling shows because he's still in training. I'm not sure about rated shows with western bridles...

I think you would get bombarded with mean comments at a rated show for no noseband.
