Weaver nylon bridle is HUGE

I ordered the Weaver Leather nylon graphite collection with the headstall, gaming reins, and breastcollar, and just got them in the mail. The bridle (BROWBAND HEADSTALL GRAPHITE TACK-Big Dee's Tack & Vet Supply) is absolutely huge, and it only adjusts on the one side, so that the felt lining meant for the crown of the head is on the cheek, and it is still huge. I'm not sure if my leather punch will get through the nylon, but I guess I have to try, as I see no other alternative.

Any suggestions?

Heat up a nail or use a soldering iron for best results.

If you didn't get the smallest size, definitely send back and get the next size down or even smaller. Nylon is a pain to try and break through, even if you do use a hot iron. Just tried using a leather punch for nylon and didn't do anything.

If you ordered the smallest size, I say look for a different bridle. Some just don't work out!

Darn! There were no sizes on it, so I ordered it hoping it was a generic horse-size bridle.

Hang on, I'm going to go out and try it on a few different horses to make sure my eyes just aren't making it seem bigger than it is.

Yeah--do NOT use the hole punch; use a wood burner or hot nail.

How exactly do you heat the nail up and make the whole without burning yourself? Could I use plyers with rubber handles?

There was just another thread about this in this same section...I think it's called "Halter too big" or something. Should still be on the first page. It details the hot nail method.
