So I've tryed many bridles on my gelding but all cut into his eyes, I try different bits and none help so I was wondering about halter bridles and if they are allowed in barrel racing? Or if there is any bridles that I can get for him.... he has a big head and he's almost five (next month) and he's around 16.2-3 hh, he doesnt fit in normal halters they are to tight to trailer or really work him in. So he an dmy QH are in larges but his head is larger then his... behind his ears to his cheeks are large! So nothing really fits.... any advise? Any bridles? Im going to show in Paint shows... this summer.
Of him in the different bridles and halters preferably :)
Just a thought. If they're cutting into his eye, perhaps his browband is too small? I had the same problem with my miniature horse. The bridle itself was fine but it was extremely close to her eye. A friend (and some people on here) took a look and told me her forehead was just abnormally wide and was bringing the bridle up too high. I took off the browband and she was fine. You might try a western headstall or just a wider (draft?) browband.
Does anyone know where to get the leather over nylon halters that look like that? Also the brown halter tight on his mouth/chin and its on the very last hole on everything, its my little 15(?) hh horses.
