Smile How informal can we go?

So I rode in the local Halloween parade yesterday.

I took a necklace to make my horse's browband more fancy. I really just took off the browband and tied it on..

Anyway, I was wondering, how improper is it to ride english without having a noseband on your bridle?

I just like the way it looks without one. My noseband is never really put to use, it's just there. Two fingers can fit.

Unless you're at a place where people really care, and you care that they care, it's fine to go without.

I ride with a rope halter under the bridle so I don't use the noseband at all right now, unless I'm in a lesson.

Very nice looking! If she goes well without the noseband, I don't think there is any need to use one.

Unless you are planning on showing, if she goes well without it there is no reason you HAVE to use it! Most recognized shows will require a proper fitting noseband with an "english" bridle, so if you are showing, you might want to keep it on when practicing just so she is used to it.

Super cute idea with the necklace on the browband btw!
