My first Western Bridle!

Ok, some folks were asking, "What did ya get for Christmas?" Well, I bought myself this beautiful Western headstall at the local grange, and then decided that I felt so guilty about the $100 ! Cost, that I would let that be my Christmas present so hubby wouldn't have to get me anything else. But then I just had to get some good Conchos for it, so I went online to this site;

Conchos & Buckles

And bought the neates iron and sterling silver conchos. They were not cheap. But I wanted to share this retailer with you all, 'cause they have really one of the best selections of conchos I have ever seen and they also are very knowledgeable about saddles and pads.

HaPpY NEw YEar and HapPy TraiLs!

That website is really nice! I loved the flower conchos lol! Im thinking about getting them for this little girl at my barn if they are cheap enough

I am a western bridle/headstall addict! I have about 10 of them and only own 1 horse BUT I do ride many others regularly that just needed so and so headstall because it jjust fits their face perfectly!

Oh and absolutly love your new bridle. You should give it to me for christmas!

This is the first Western headstall I have ever had. I have been riding western for 2 years now, but use an old (to the point of rotting) brown english bridle with nose band. It is plain and very functional but WAS rotting. (it was a garage sale find). It doesn't really matter what sort of bridle one uses. But I am becoming enamored with the "look" of western, after having been into dressage for years.

What I DO like are my heavy rope reins and slobber straps. The way they transmit the feel through to the mouth of the horse so easily, and the way I can ride totally loose and in a milisecond, just slide my hand down the rope and shorten them or lift just one side, and when the horse responds and I drop the rein, his release is very quick. Love them!
