POP QUIZ! What is this piece of tack??

Anyone know what this is? It's about 40 inches long in total length. Has soft calfskin near the buckle end. The hole at the opposite end (near my finger) is elongated, not round. The buckle looks to be brass and is more Western-tack style than English. Part of a headstall?

I'd say it's part of a bridle. Looks exactly like the crownpiece, where the split end is the throatlatch, and the "cut off" piece is where the noseband attaches. The piece with the calfskin is the throatlatch that attaches to the piece your finger is on.

I would have to think the same thing.

I would have to agree, but I don't know that i've seen one made like that before....wonder why there is calfskin...hmm


Almost looks like it could be a piece of a driving harness too...just not sure which part

I was on the same line of thinking as you guys. But, if it is a headstall, there are no cheek pieces or place to attach a bit. I tossed the idea around of it being part of a harness, but I don't know anything about harness parts. =)

Maybe someone else out there knows!

Yup and based on the elongated holes I think it's English.

I knew you guys would figure it out! Good Job and THANKS!

How does that type of crupper work? I'm guessing the buckle attaches to the short end to make the tail loop. But how does the other end (where my finger is) attach to the saddle ring?
