halter bridle combo

Fras and Vida got new halter bridle combos this week. Hubby bought them, I really like them. We gave them a try today and it was really nice when we stopped for a break we could just snap a rein to the halter and slip the bit out so the girls could graze on what green stuff there was.
No comments on how loose Vida's bit is. I did some adjusting after I took the photos Tony was messing with Fras's bit so no photo of her with both

I love Vida's little heart, ain't she precious?

Those are cool. I've never had anything like that. You'll have to use 'em for a while and let us know how you like them over time.

I do like Vida's little heart on her's.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I used mine with the D-ring snaffle and Tony used our normal curb bit. Both seemed to perform well. I wish they came as a one ear or even a double ear band instead of the full brow band type which I don't care for, but I can live with it. I also had to do some hole punching to get the fit correct, but I often have to do that with new tack.

Cool. I had a halter bridle cobo once and loved it, but hated it too... I only unes it about three times before I sold it... i'm more happy with a regular bridle and a halter on under the bridle.

Those are so cool!!! I love Vida's with the heart. Where did you get them if you don't mind me asking?? They would be great for trails.

My husband bought them on Ebay. I do think they are made rather small. Vida and Fras both have average horse sized heads. Normally when we buy horse size stuff for them its way big. If you have a large horse you might see if she has larger sizes. we just got the "horse size"
I think its Smith Amish made tack if you do a search

Are those leather? I've never seen a leather halter/bridle combo before. Those look nice. :')
