You can't use your own bridle on the horse you ride? OOOH a yellow one! Now that would be super fun to make!

Awww, thanks darkwillow! I totally understand - the shipping between the you.S and Australlia is rediculously high.

I would be more than happy to show you how to make one for yourself :)

As soon as a new browband comes up on the list of things I want, I will PM you! One of those in lime green/black/white would look AMAZING on my boy!

Quick question: what do you use to thred the beads onto? I wouldn't want the browband to break if I got one without backing. I know it probably wouldn't; I'm just wondering!

Your browband wont break without a backing! I use a beading stretch cord for my beaded strands.

I tried wire, and I found it stretched and wouldn't go back to its origional state. And it was difficult to make it even to match the other areas of the strand. I also found if it was stretched too much, it weakened and broke.

So I find that the beading stretch chord is so much better -because it can stretch without breaking, and go back to its origional state. So it moves in accordance to the horses forehead shape and stays put, then goes back to where it should be when the bridle is taken off.

I am in the process of buying new tack for my baby boys, so if I have any money left over(it is hard to buy all new tack with your own money when you are fifteen), I will most definitely be ordering one of these.

They are gorgeous! I am going to try my best to save up enough for one.

I didn't think it would I'll probably order one soon. I'll have to talk to my parents since a check would need to be written. LOL! But would you be up for making a lime green/black/white one?

You are a very responsible young lady, be proud of yourself! I was just like you when I was growing up, had to make money by doing odd chores around my neighborhood to afford my horse hobby.

It just makes you appreciate what you have more than those who's parents buy it for them.

Just let me know when you want a browband :)

Yeah, G is black and white so it would look soo cute on him! (:
I use the barn's tack on him. And the other issue here would be he has a nylon(?) bridle and if I lease him I think the tack comes with him. :\
