Would this match my saddle?

I just bought a Toulouse Celine in newmarket


It's been darkened a bit from oiling.

Do you think this tack in light brown would match at all?



And you think it's worth that much money?

I have managed to find some newmarket tack out there. It wasn't easy. That's why this package is so appealing. Not to mention it looks beautiful.

If your going for a perfect match I'd say no. The saddle is a bit more of a natural leather color bordering on a golden. The tack is obviously more of a brown. I can't help you out on whether the price is right.
Its tough to tell from a photo though

The saddle looks a little too light to match the other tack,unless you darken it all id say no.

I'd have to agree...I think the fittings would be too dark for your saddle. As for "do I think it's worth that much money?" Yes. I really like the look and feel of Bobby's strapgoods. They hold up nicely and clean up great for a show. My only complaint is their reins run shorter than standard. My horse cannot get long and low even when I'm holding the buckle and reaching way forward. If your horse has a normal or long neck, Bobby's reins will probably be too short.

Bobby's makes their bridles in "London" (similar to Newmarket). I can't seem to find them on their website though. But ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/Bobbys-English-Bridle-Padded-LONDON-Horse-Size_W0QQitemZ290286819521QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_De faultDomain_0?hash=item290286819521&_trksid=p3286. C0.m14&_trkparms=66%3A2|65%3A10|39%3A1|240%3A1318

Maybe you could send them an email and see if they can make that package deal in London!

For the $380 do you get the bridle, martingale and girth?? If so that's an amazing price! Ususally the bridle alone is almost $300. (For a show bridle)
