Yay! Made My Own Bridle :D

I'm pretty proud of myself for this haha
Kainne didn't have a western bridle and I had a lot of spare time, so I decided to make him one myself.
I've been slaving away at this thing for days..
It all started with a spare pair of Abetta cordura split reins and some spare buckles from old and ill-fitting bridles I had lying around..

I whipped out my soldering iron and sewing kit and went to work. I used an old bridle to get all of the measurements down..I reinforced just about everything I sewed/cut/poked/etc with the soldering iron. I used extra thick thread for all of the sewing..and finished in time to get his name on it.
Here is my masterpiece:





Look, it actually fits!

That's awesome. So handy and much cheaper.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Looks great! Congrats.

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
