Western Headstall

Hi guys

You might remember I was making a Western headstall which a customer had designed (with us). I previously put some pics of it part-made, with a promise to put pics of the completed headstall on. Unfortunately, the photos got stuck on my camera which broke! Finally we got the pics off the camera, so here goes....

Modelled by my decrepit and grumpy Arab 'Zahlia' (P.S. this mare is permanently retired and never ridden - she is only modelling this headstall, so apologies for the badly-fitting bit - it was the smallest we had to fit her!)

This Side-pull bridle is for the same customer:

So what do you you guys think? Do you like it?

Gorgeous work as always, Nutty! And the detail work really looks nice on your mare!

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

As for the headstall, its magnificent too!! I can tell just by looking at it that the leather is soft and supple!! Reaallyy nice job!
