Do I need the flash piece?
Today I had some time to kill so I swung over by the local tack store just to browse. To my surprise they had some very nice Dressage bridles with crystal (fake obviously) browbands & nosebands. Best part? They were cheap & I was looking for a new show bridle.
When I got home though I realized the bridle didn't have a flash noseband attachment. Because of the crystals on the noseband I obviously wouldn't want to use an attachment one - I'd have to get one sewn onto it. BUT, my question is: do I even really need it? It's just going to be used strictly at shows. The bridle my mare has now has the flash piece & that's what she'll be continued to get schooled in. I might have answered my own question. Still want to get some second opinions.
