Adjustable noseband halters?

Alright, I am about ready to give up!!
I'm looking for a halter with an adjustable noseband, but I want the adjustable part on the top of the nose, like this:

And I have had NO luck finding one in Canada, much less my area!
I'd prefer it in a nylon halter though, and to be picky on colors, I am looking for royal blue, and hope to get one for a friend that's yellow.
Any ideas?
Thanks!

I love these products from Horze, I have a nice one from Finntack but it doesn't have the nose buckle but they do make some with it...

I am sure they will ship international too.

You can get them everywhere round here but I doubt you would want to pay shipping :( and it would seem like twice the price in dollars

I have one, love that thing. Here's one site that I found quickly.

Try searching on "buckle nose halter" or "buckle nose band halter". Also, you may have more luck on harness sites.

Just curious, what's the appeal of having the buckle on top of the noseband?

Say you are going to bridle your horse: unbuckle the noseband and you still have some control with the halter around the neck. Also nice for face clipping. Or say you want to just put on the bridle over the halter, then remove the halter...you can do that too.

Does it make a different if the buckle is on the top or the bottom of the noseband though?

I'm actually more concerned.. Is it a possibility of rubbing nose from buckle?

I really liked the one Sara posted. :)

Mm, in the case of dropping the halter around the horses neck, you just unbuckle the noseband and it drops down, as opposed to unbuckling and then rebuckling the top buckle. Not a huge difference, just convenient.

If you are putting on the bridle, THEN taking off the halter, you have to pull it down through the bottom because of the halter strap under the horse's jaw.

I've never had any rubbing issues, but I can't say I've left the buckle nose on a horse more than 30-45 minutes.
