I found a pretty nice show bridle hanging on the gate of the public arena about two months ago. I figured out it was pony sized by keeping it in the holes I found it in and trying it on my pony, and it fit perfect.. and looked awesome.. I suspect it had been hanging there for a while because of the rust on the bit and some of the silver on it.
That aside, I contacted everyone I knew with a small horse or large pony, and it doesn't belong to anybody that I know. I also called the managers of the arena and they said there wasn't anything they could do.
I really wanted a new show bridle, but I don't really want to go all "finders keepers losers weepers" on people.. And I'm afraid if I go and show in it at local shows the rightful owner of it will turn up, and be mad!
What would you do?
