If you don't want a Balding, Bob Avila has some knockoffs through Professionals Choice...not sure about the one you wanting though. If you get a Balding and don't want it no longer or would like to sell it later, that wont be a problem either.
A one ear headstall is not an issue in brushy country for us. We are sticklers for riding bridle horses in a split ear. I have never had one come off chasing cattle in tall sage or trees. As far where to get them, not too sure, my husband made some of ours, EBay, and Capriolas. Caps is spendy though.
I wouldn't order reins on line. I like to feel them in my hand. I like a heavier reins for sure. They have a better feel and will get a quicker release off of your bit. I just get the waterloop ends, just personally preference. I like to match my headstall width with rein width, but that is just me...
