Very lovely bridle though!
Thanks for the compliments!
Tinylily, I showed the headstall to my instructor to see if he had any buckles for it (And quite honestly, I wanted to show off my "pride and joy"
). He said they looked good, and they looked discolored because the buckles were made of german silver and the conchos were plated copper(?). I mentioned I needed to get a bit as well (to see what he would recommed). He walked over to where he hangs his bits and basically said, "Take your pick". With his consent, I took the snaffle pictured above.
(That just made my day!)
Anyway, I'm broke right now, so once I get enough, I'm going to buy replacement buckles, as I don't want the one with the hole to break while I'm riding.
ANNND...Back to the OP:
So a curb strap and a chin strap are different? Or is it just the way you use the strap?
The rings on the bit are 3" in diameter, but I think I'll get one, just to be sure it doesn't get pulled through.
Thanks for your responses!
