I was asked to make a grackle bridle for someone - as normal nothing is normal so I thought that I would show you all the result.
She asked for laced reins, bridle clips on the cheek-pieces and brass buckles.
I also stitched a pattern on the brow-band and the centre round piece . The bridle was made in Dk Havana and had 12 stitches to the inch all round - except the pretty patterns which were stitched in 16 stitches to the inch ( that's why the other saddlers call me nuts - no one stitches at 16 to the inch anymore )
What do you all think.
