New bridle - old style

As my darling mare stood on something , punctured and lacerated the bulb of her heel , I found myself with some spare time , so I made her a new bridle instead of riding her ( spoilt mare ) .

Decided on making something different ( her existing bridle is a normal raised flash bridle ( with a real gold chain on her browband - spoilt mare )) . So I got one of my saddlery books out and decided on a riding bridle from the turn of the century (1900 ish ) .

It is rather clean in its lines as it has no seperate strap for the cavesson , rather like a modern in hand bridle . I haven't decided on the reins yet ( plaited , laced or suregrip ) so they are missing.

Thought I would post some pics to see what you all think

I always enjoy the older designs whether it be English or Western. BTW, I notice you are using a collar instead of a halter. How do you like it?

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Glad you like my work.
As for the collar thing - halters are almost alien to us over here . The natural horsemanship people use halters but in the UK headcollars are the norm.

Iride - I think that is the horse's halter around her neck. She just unbuckled the crown and then rebuckled around the neck :)

I am totally confused. What is the difference between a halter and a headcollar? I've Googled it and they look the same to me?

ETA: Does the headcollar have an adjustable noseband along the top?

I use a halter like this on Java, it's adjustable, but still a halter?

Very nice! I like the flat browband and noseband. That's the same style as an in-hand bridle. I've always liked them. I recently bought an OLD western bridle that was made in the same style.

Here's one I really liked. I snagged it off an Argentine TB racing web site:


Here's the one I just bought:


Some in-hand show bridles of similar design:

What you have around your horse's neck IS a Halter here in the USA. Anything that's not ridden in and goes on the horse's head is pretty much a halter, lol. Do you mean like an NH rope halter?
