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
