All of a sudden things become more interesting when your bridle breaks (with pics)


This happened to me last weekend, a couple of kilometres from home! The leather around one of the buckles snapped (yeah..i think I've only oiled it once, its cheap indian stuff to so that wouldnt help)
I was like um..hmm....what to do...
Tried to fix it but I couldnt. I can make a bridle/halter out of rope but of course I didnt have any!
So I clipped the reins onto his noseband and rode him back home like that, he was pretty good about it actually!

Anyways, my invention:




The pieces:


So yeah, just thought id share the photos

Scary! Clever idea though.

A few days ago, I was taking care of someone else's horse for them. I was leading their horse back from turn out when he tried to grab at some grass. I yanked, and the lead rope broke at the snap. I was able to run into the barn and get another lead (couldn't have been more than 30 ft) while he grazed, thank goodness that grass was there.

Ha ha same thing had happened to my old bridal. (very old bridal I should add) Pumpkin was still in his naughty days and he bolted for the gate. Half way down the paddock, my reins suddenly become loose and floppy. I lean forward and there is his bit, hanging by on leather strap (out of his mouth). I can tell you it wasn't that funny. I can tell you now, about every 2nd weekend, my bridal gets oiled. WELL oiled

This happened to me once, except my bridle didnt break, and nothing snapped, it just plain fell off. I'm not even sure how it happened, but the bit hit her teeth and she bucked me off anf ran around for a bit.

My bridle fell off my horse a couple times one day, and all he did was stop immediatly and put his head up so I could fix it. I love him(:

That is always a scary thing. Good thing he is trained well enough that you could pull that off. Well done.

Wouldn't you just take the other end and loop it through?

^ it was a very old lead rope and it nearly completely unwinded when it broke, so I didn't consider it safe to lead him back with, especially since he would probably try to dart into the grass.

That happened to my fiance' and it happened when the horse was freaking out. One of the srew-on bolts came loose and fell off. I hate those bolts, they're always loose no matter what you do, you can just replace the screw itself because the inside of the cap becomes where the thread is becomes stripped so you have to replace the whole thing!!

In the second sentence I meant to say..."you CAN'T just replace the screw", I put "you can" instead...sorry lol
