I am overwhelmed and can't make a decision. My trainer and I picked out Sam's bit that I will use for general riding and trails. It has Texas stars and is antiqued
I am now trying to find him a headstall. Omg.
I don't want something too blingy right away. I want SOME bling but not much. Stars would be nice. I'm not a huge bling girl but also it will be used for indoor and outdoor ring training and travel to trails. Ihe doesn't have much of a forelock so I like the idea of a futurity knot or a v. The large brow bands Are nice but I wonder if it is practical for weekday practices in 90+ degree heat. Sweaty!
I love the look of the braided leather
I am over guessing how much his headstall will clash with his saddle. I have a reddish saddle that is heavily tooled in acorns and oak leafs. I found a similar headstall for omg $129. Without reins.
I also do not like the light yellowish leather. Prefer the medium to dark oil but some pics only show light.
Will we look off if the headstall is very different? My breast collar matches the saddle.
Its overwhelming. I was hoping to place the order tonight but no way.
Why did you choose your headstall? Does it match your saddle? Eventually I will probably buy another bit and a cheaper working headstall for the dusty indoor arena and outdoor ring.
Sigh. Time for bed. I'll try to post pics of where I am leaning.
Ps - if the ad lists "inc 5/8" x 7' reins" is it safe to say they are split reins? I don't want to buy a single rein package.
