What do you think of this bridle set up?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA:IT&ih=002

I kind of like the idea of the stitching, but not sure if it's too much detail. i have a black western saddle, pretty basic, with little silver. I have to keep in mind i need to get a breast collar too, so i want the whole thing to flow.

I find it very pretty. Do you know that it is an English bridle? But I think that the look would go good with your western saddle if you could find it in a western bridle.

yes in know it's an english, my trainer said it would fit my horse better since he's got a small head, and that it would be better for training. is there any advantages to having english over wester, or vise versa?

I think English headstalls are better becauase

they run smaller as a rule of thumb
they are generally cheaper
they have easier buckles
they are simple when you want/need them to be.

...Buut aren't ya gonna look goofy with a flash?

The caveson/noseband has a flash attached to it.



See the extra strap that goes in front of the bit? Thats what the bridle you posted has on it too. You can remove them but it looks funny. I'll see if I cant help find you something.

you could always take the noseband and or flash off. And there's no written rule that says you can't mix and match stuff. I rode my fiance's horse in an english saddle with western bridle.

It looks like a nice bridle, and i do like the stiching it has on it. And worse case that you don't like how it looks on Thunder with the saddle, you could sell it

I actually have this one, it fits my little pony and our thoroughbred. It comes in black too. I'm sure it will work. (Cob Size I bought)
