That is all explained in the post, and again, all of the pictures posted are of the incomplete bridle.

In the finished one the rein straps slide through the rings on both sides. They were only tied in the picture there si I could try it out (as I hadn't attached the chin strap yet).

I'll be heading out to the barn this weekend to do a series of puctures ofthe finished bridle, to hopefully give a better idea of how it works and how to adjust it.

Thanks :)

Thanks :) I can accomodate special requests without a problem. How thik were you thinking? 1/4"? Thicker?

I'm not making these for retail just yet though, still in the testing stage (though I did use it on a 7 hour trail ride last wekend with zero issues).

The only thing with using thicker ropes is the bulk factor (only a concern for rope thicker that 1/4") and the price factor- thicker rope costs a bit more- depending on the brand.

I probably wont be able to get one but, I was thinking you could try different tipes of rope, thicker, thiner, softer, firmer, rounder, flatter. That way you can have different levels of control :)

If it's a matter of price I'm holding a contest and will be awarding a free bridle to two winners.

check out either my blog (linked below) or this thread: Win a Bitless Bridle- EASY CONTEST! and look for ROUND TWO details.

How about something with "quiet" in it? Maybe Quiet Crusader/Cruiser, Quiet Ride/Ride Quiet, Quiet Right, something along those lines?
