    What is wrong with my new bridle????

    I have been staring at this for over half an hour. I brought my first western bridle today and tried to fit it this Arvo. I have always ridden in dressage bridles so this bridle to me looks very weird. Is this how it is suppose to look? Is it too big too small? Do I tuck the side bits into the keepers. To me it doesn't quite look right. Any suggestions.

    Umm usually bridles don't have loops holding the straps together, that's more on point with a halter.

    So I'd say it's a converted halter or made from halter parts..

    Also your bit seems just a smidge too small

    I brought the bridle today brand new off the shelf in a horse store. They had about 8 of this exact bridle in stock. With the bit is the length too small in his mouth or the loops of the bit too small?

    The length, there should be about a finger's width of space on each side.

    And no worries, the bridle still functions as a regular bridle, it's just a different style is all.
    If you're happy with it, great. If not, then you can always return it and get another one

    Thanks skyseternalangel for your help much appreciated :).

    Cool about the bit will look into getting a longer one.I have always hated this particular bit as I usually choose bits with bigger loops at the end.

    Yup, bit is definitely too small.

    It's a barcoo style headstall. Bit is either too small or headstall is adjusted too small.
