What is this? An english sidepull??

I found this and I'm seriously considering buying it since the price is right and I do need another headstall.
However, I'm not 100% what it is exactly.

I'm happy if it's a sidepull, I'm happy if it's a bridle, but I'm not super into the whole "Pay $$, get SUPRISE!" thing so if someone knows what it is, I'd love to know exactly before I commit to it.

This is the only picture avaliable:



Thanks! :)


The seller is convinced that it's a "headstall with a leather curb strap attached" but she also has professed to know nothing about English riding (and she thinks this is an English bridle).

It looks like some kind of sidepull to me...

That is wierd. There are buckles over the crown piece? If it isnt' FREE I would not bother. I don't know what it is.

Looks like an english show halter to me. Like the kind seen particularly on gaited horses and warmbloods. -> http://goldingranch.com/Tack/SS%20show%20halter.jpg

ETA I guess the proper term is in-hand show bridle: http://www.supremehorseware.com/English-Bridles.html

It is a show halter, but for donkeys.

That's the reason for the buckled headpiece :)

I have never seen an inhand bridle with a buckle on the headpiece though!

Wallaby, I'm not sure about "english" part, but it looks like sidepull. I have very similar I used when I just started my horses. That's the mildest possible "bitless bridle" you can find out there. :)

Edit: after reading comments... Yeah, I didn't notice the buckle on top - that one is indeed weird. I have something like this one http://www.doversaddlery.com/tory-le...FUff4AodGUgA5A (although much cheaper from eBay).

Er, chaps...it's for a donkey - honest!

How d'you like to have your long ears bent and pulled between a fixed headpiece and browband all the time?

Hee-haw is right. :)

I'd think it's probably should be on smaller side too then. No?

There are some pretty big donkeys about!

"Large donkeys in America are called mammoth asses and measure up to 16.2 hands, or as big as a (UK) police horse."

Whoah - I don't think I'd fancy a donkey that big

Okay - maybe it's for a mule :)
