Question english & western bridle question

So I was looking thought the state line tack catalog...and I was looking at the english & western bridles...I was wondering... With the western bridles..how come they sell them in seperate parts... like the headstall is one price,the nose band is one price and the reins are another price.

The english bridles come as one whole set.

Why is that?

Western bridles typically do not have a noseband/cavesson. They sell the nosebands for people that want to use one on their horse, and then tiedowns as well. The tiedowns and nosebands are typically seen in roping/barrel racing/rodeo/ranch work. Reining horses, cowhorses, etc don't show with nosebands or tiedowns.

Also, in Western, you use different types of reins for different types of riding. Selling the reins separately allows you to choose the type that you want.

On that note english has different types of reins too not necessarily split vs. roping/barrel reins but the design....I did buy my english headgear in a big set like the OP is talking about, but not all of them are like that.
