    She's a full draft. I added conchos and the leather was realllly nasty when I poked through it. It smells funky, it's cracking on the outside all over, and the screws are pulling through where the bit attaches. I haven't even used it yet. Kinda scared to....

    As a saddler I can tell you - you get what you pay for - the leather cost alone for a bridle is about $60 ( good leather ) and it would take about a day and a half to make. A good bridle would last about 20 years if made and looked after properly so it's worth it in the long run.

    I was talking to Jessabel about the size of her horse.

    And Back- I wouldn't use a flaky leather headstall! That should be something you can get your money back from the seller - it's defective. Report it to eBay if they won't refund you the money.

    I once made a bridle for a shire horse - it's nose circumference was bigger than my waist - I could wear it as a belt !

    The browband for my boy is just under 22". I couldn't get the local tack store to believe it until I took it in there and showed them. I was wanting to get a fancy beaded browband.

    Wow that's big - I find average F/s horse is about 17"

    If you want something fancy PM me and we can talk about it

    I'm looking more toward medieval style headstalls. Ever do any of those?

    Not cheesy fantasy ones. But more toward the historical side.

    Got any pics - I can pretty much make anything as long as I have a pattern to go by
