Weaver Leather Noseband

I'm trying to be very very patient, and wait for Equine Affair in April in Columbus Ohio just to make sure I don't find something I like better. But I am looking into the Weaver Back in Black Collection. I am going to purchase headstall,reins,and breast collar. But as far as the nose band goes. Can this perticular nose band be used just for "decoration"? Or would it be more of a "purpose" nose band? My mare keeps her bit and takes it perfectly. :) just wondering if anyone had advise and do you think she would look good?. Also does anyone have black western leather saddle recommendations?

I just googled it and those nosebands are used for tiedowns, unless there is an english variety in the collection.

No. It is too loose to be used as a decorative noseband, and if you don't need a tie-down strap, don't put one on. However, someone skilled with leather may be able to customize it for you to make it into an English-type cavesson noseband.

If you're riding western it's not really necessary, more for decoration I believe since you don't direct rein/have direct contact.

But please correct me if I'm wrong

I do see the spot for the tie down I missed that last time I looked at it. So I might by pass and see if I can find something to match or just forget it. I can't wait to have everything and shine her all up once her coat is blown. :) any ideas on a leather black western saddle to match? I am hoping there will be tons at the affair because I can't did one I like...it's either ugly or synthetic :(

Nosebands like the one Bubba posted are used by barrel racers, ropers, and other western performance horses, the noseband is hooked to a strap that goes between the horse's front legs and hooked on the girth. It is VERY important for the strap to be fitted to the horse..One size fits all does not work. (not reining or other "show" type horses). It's not just for decoration, it's used to keep a horse's head down instead of having it high in the air where you have less control and contact with their mouth. Not all horses have to wear a noseband and tiedown but my three do.
