Bridle type to balance out large head

I recently purchased a Haflinger/Arab cross and he's built more like a haflinger. Actually, you can't see any Arab in him at all lol. I would like to know what your opinions are on a bridle that will balance his head cosmetically?

I was under the impression that horses with large/long heads look nice in a wide/wider band noseband to make their faces look smaller?

He's not a show horse and we ride english. This is merely for my own desire to have his head look more in proportion

Here's my new boy, Red.

I like a nice, thick bridle on a big head, and I tend to think that a padded crank noseband looks better than a plain cavesson because it's wider. I wish I had photos handy of my mare's head with a cavesson vs. a crank, because the difference it makes in her jughead is huge. And of course, the crank need not be done up any tighter than a standard cavesson.

If you could find a picture at some point, I'd love to see it!
