So, this is my new Dutch WB/TB mare. I bought her as is... I.e, NOTHING comes with her. So, I am buying her new bridle and saddle, but I'm not sure if I want black or a shade of brown on her. Personally, I think she would look better in a black saddle, but I am having a hard time finding a black figure-eight bridle at any of my local-ish tack stores... They're all havana, nut, chestnut etc. Also, I have never actually seen a hunter/jumper compete in a black figure-eight... maybe they're "out of fashion"? Let me know what you think, please!
