Denny's new bridle (very image heavy!)

Showing off his new figure-8 bridle. It's purely for aesthetics, since I like the look of them... but he also seems quieter in it as well, even though the nose strap is super loose.

PS - yes, I do realize that the jowel strap needs to be tightened... it's my first figure 8 bridle.. I'm still figuring things out





(re: the strap over the bit guard - he had just rolled and somehow did that... it wasn't like that for long)

I love it! Horses always look so handsome in figure 8s.
Question: what brand is it/where did you buy it? I'm loving the brown sheepskin under the center disc!

It's actually made locally by a man named Ray ... I forget the last name. I bought this one on the "Grand Opening Day" special sale for $90!! The leather quality is absolutely amazing, and it's all hand made locally and the company is called "Cal-Tack". I highly recommend their leatherwork. I'm sure they would ship out to you if you would like.
As for the sheepskin; I added that on myself hehe.. I just bought a piece of brown sheepskin and glued it on. :P I thought it would look less dirty than natural sheepskin..

upnover - I definitely have the whole jumper thing going on - and color-matched too!!! I have a navy saddle pad, tendon boots, fetlock boots, and earnet - I'm set!! I just need an elastic breastplate with fleece in the middle ;) ooh and fleece-lined bell boots.

Nice set.. Its even better that you have a local manufactorer that can make you something to match the rest of your tack! Very nice!

JDI, Denny is sooo beautiful. And the bridle looks great on him!

In these pics, he really reminds me of Jubilee:
