Unfortunately, that looks like it was a cheap "Poco" style headstall to begin with. Not much hope for salvaging the pretty, but the rust on the curb won't hurt anything. And speaking of, your curb chain is on the wrong spot. It belongs on the same ring where the headstall is attached to the bit.

If it was nice silver it would tarnish not rust, so if you have rust you have a base metal. It will be very tough to try and clean it up, so if the leather is good it would be worth buying some new conchos for it, the curb chain, well it will work just as well brown :lol: so it's up to you, either keep going, or buy a new one

Thanks for the info on the curb.. I am pretty dumb about western tack xD
And yup! that first link is my bridle exactly! haha It's just used for trails occasionally, so I guess it's fine if it does the job. Is there any way to get the rust off, though?

Not that I know of. I don't even think a metal brush would do the trick. I suppose you could always spray paint it with a silver metallic--they sell some kinds of paint that shouldn't interfere with the chain's movement.

I'm a dog groomer and I have this stuff Andis Blade Care Plus | PetEdge.com
to clean my clipper blades, it works well for removing rust off blades. My mom also had a really nice pair of old tailor shears that someone ran through the dishwasher and they got really rusted and using the blade cleaner and some metal sandpaper got all the rust off.
