For anyone who is curious, just because you tape the offside of the bridle doesn't mean that It's permanently attatched.... all you have to do is undo the knot that is taped.... it's just a loop with the rope through it..... you can do the same thing with the reins

:o WOW :o I make halters and bridles for my Breyers, and I thought about it for real horses, but you can't use leather lacing for this! I really want to make one, but the horse I would use it on could be a "Bit Evader": I've only ridden him once. He was pretty good about the bit, no tucking his chin or gaping.....Thanks for posting this, mlkarel2010!! I'll see if I can get my Mom to let me make one.......would she make me pay for it? :) :)

Why did your trainer start off those?

That's an interesting concept. I would be tempted to make one to say I have one, would be fun to make but not sure I would use it for every day riding.
Looks like you might be starting a trend!

I'm not sure why he started these.... probably because they are cheap durable and very adjustable to fit all kinds of horses.... and they're simple

I think it would fun to make one and probably something good to keep as a spare in your emergency tack trunk when you take horses off property to go for trails in the mountains etc.

Could also be good if you want to just goof around bareback in the arena??

Exactly! They look great on horses, and I'm excited to make one, but it certainly won't be my primary bridle.. just for those lazy bareback days ;)

My current bridle doesn't match my saddle (my saddle is black) so I wanted to try it for the sake of a matching bridle !
