Talking I feel so accomplished.

So most everyone knows that I have been riding Dobe in a soft hackamore for a while and he does wonderfully. Anyway, I was cleaning in the tack room the other day when I came across a rawhide bosal that is probably older than I am. So I got to thinking that I would really like to give it a shot on Dobe and maybe on Koda. I am so proud that I made the bridle myself from some scrap leather and tied my own fiador and throatlatch before attaching the mecate rein. I just finished it a little while ago because I had to bring the bosal into the house and let it soak for a while then use a scrub brush on it. It was covered with fly poo and dirt and was slightly misshapen from hanging in the tack room for years. I can't wait to give it a shot tomorrow. I just learned how to tie the fiador knot the other night and kinda figured out the throatlatch thing myself tonight. I hope it works.

Right on! Love it when we find old treasure in the tack room!

How did it work on him?

That is a very nice looking bosal. You did good work putting a set together.

Thats probably a $300 bosal. That was a great find and it looks very well made.

Really nice! Well done! I wish I could just do that. Would save someone quite abit of money.

Tell us how it all goes.

Nice! I'm jealous - I've always wanted to try a bosal but they are super expensive, and even more so here in AUS. I wish I could just find one in my shed!

Post pics of your ride in it!
