He doesn't really need pressure from the noseband as he doesn't gape his mouth open or try to evade the bit (which is what the noseband is supposed to prevent if adjusted tightly, yes?). So really, the noseband would be there for looks and just so he would get used to the feel because it would be adjusted very loosely.

Also, I just looked at the second bridle again and it only comes in horse size. We need oversize or warmblood size as he has a massive head.

Cavesson nosebands are decorative, not used to keep the horse's mouth shut.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

No you're thinking of a flash and/or figure eight noseband and/or crank noseband. The regular straight across is just extra support and for looks.. but it has to be adjusted properly else it will interfere with the horse and/or be very uncomfortable/cause damage.

Yeah, any bridle I get will have the flash taken off and the noseband adjusted so that it's loose (i.e.-just for looks).

Okay, resurrecting my old thread. lol

So I'm still looking at bridles (going to order a bridle next paycheck, which will be Friday after next).

I still like the first one I linked to, but then I found this one...thoughts?

I quite like the look of the last one, but the browband is only a touch over 15" if he is like Bert she needs bigger than that.

Hmmmmmm...that is something to think about. I need to measure his current bridle and see how big it is. I know it's oversized, but a couple of pieces don't fit the best (like the throatlatch is almost too small...again...I've already replaced it once).

I have this bridal for my big headed TB, Premier Black Padded Bridle in Dressage / Show Hack at Schneider Saddlery .I've had it since last October and I get comments all the time about how nice it is. No one can believe how inexpensive it was. This one only comes in full size or cob but they did have one of the same brand in oversized if you would need larger, It is slightly different. http://www.sstack.com/english_bridle...le-with-crank/

Hmmmm...I do like this one! Premier Dressage Snaffle Bridle with Crank in Dressage / Show Hack at Schneider Saddlery

I definitely need oversized/warmblood, unfortunately.

Hey wow, that seller is in Effort PA! That is only like 10 minutes from me, off to check out their listings! lol I'm excited because the nearest tack store is about an hour away so if they have saddles that would be great I need one for Legacy.

ETA: only bridals
