I thought so to. I am sort of a bling type personality. Those are not the rythum beads but a halter/bridle combo that is hand braided. I went on ahead and ordered a set in colors that will match my favorite Renassiance Fair costume. So if she hates it on the trail maybe l will still get to use it. I have never taken my horse to a Ren. Fair yet but I now have an oppurtunity.
These bridle sets can come with or without beads or tassels. It was hard to choose. Anyhow I figured that if a Arabian was historican ridden with all those tassels and knights armored their horses it could be done. So I am giving it a try.

Where did you get your rythm beads? Those are lovely. I ride in Colorado in the mountains. It is a good idea to have something that makes a little noise to alert wildlife that you"re around.

Those in the photo shown are not actually the rythum beads. However they should act like them. That is a hand braided halter/bridle combo from High Point Farm and Tack. She can do with beads or tassles and without. There are three or so versions to choose from. You can also add crystals as well. I think there are about 20 colors you can choose from and can have it done in one, two, or three different colors.
As for the rythum beads, there are several websites that sell them. I will be makeing mine. I am pretty crafty and love doing this kind of stuff. I will probably just go with a few mane dangles.
I have been doing her ground work with the proper rythum bead "necklace" and it gets in the way. I will be using a pulling collar instead of a breast collar and that will also interfere with the bead placement on the neck.
I am 45 minutes from Durango Colorado. The majority of my time in the summer is camping as far up in the mountians as I can get. This year my friend from Santa Fe is actually going to come get me and my horse TWICE to go camping in the Pecos area....which resembles the Durango area a lot. I am very excited.

I get biothane bridles in colors and decorate them myself. I can change the decorations if I get tired of them. For instance right now I have a purple biothane bridle set with pink and lavender stars on it but later I might like beads or feathers, or different accent colors. It is easy to change the look with a little thread and glue.

Use them and see how she reacts. Most foxtrotters I have seen have pretty steady heads and don't do much headbobbing like a lot of walkers do. Pretty similar in style to some of the shoo-fly bridles I have seen. She might actually appreciate them helping to keep flies off.

Love the set, I am all about the bling too. Would look lovely if you take her to ride in parades.

Every foxtrotter I know (and have owned) has had a head bob... in fact, many breeders will tell you that is a classic and "sought after" trait.

I finally recieved my new halter/bridle combo but now I cannot seem to attach the darn photo. I have tried going advanced and the format seems to have changed? Maybe its just my phone? I uploaded the other photos from my tablet.

Geisha`s New halter bridle combo set(minus the parts that attach the bit for now).
Also tried it out on my gelding. Pink IS NOT his color.
