Bling Belts?

Ok western riders, who has one??

I'm riding on a drill team and the outfit is all about being flashy. I decided instead of shelling out the $90 my local western wear/tack stores wanted, that I would make my own! I found a great Tony Lama belt with buckle online for $30 and bought $20 worth of crystals. It looks good so far, and I might post pictures in a little bit.

What does your belt look like? Post pictures!

Anyone at least see/know of any bling belts they like? I'm just trying to find ideas to finish my belt up with, plus showing off the sparkles is fun!

Ooooh!! Same with my drill team;)

I only paid $55 for mine. It's print alligator, with a thick row of crystals along the top and bottom. Then in the middle, there is silver embordered barbwire all the way around. Every six inches or so there is a big square crystal:) I really like it!!

Another drill rider?! Yeah!! I'm a newbie to it, but it's been a ton of fun so far! Your belt sounds cool. Alligator and silver embroidery...so unique.

I googled that website and it looks great, internet is just being super slow loading it right now :(

Is a slow loading website -.- like wayyyy tooo many pictures!!!

This was my last year on the team, I had to take a hiatus for college and wanting more time to ride and show my horses. I was on the Freedom Riders Equestrian Drill Team for 5 years and it was some of the most fun I have ever had on horseback:) I'd love to pick it back up in a couple years, but I might join a different team that competes more at a national level.

What's the name of your team??

Alright, this is my belt so far.




We are the Shooting Stars Drill team. We ride at a pro rodeo that's held in the arena our riding association owns and that's it. Going national would be awesome, I just don't have the time or money! You should google the Rainbow Riders in Ramona CA, they're close to me (and far from you, sorry) but they are a team like what you're looking for eventually I think. It's definitely a new way of riding for me, I didn't think I would enjoy the fast pace as much as I'm beginning to. I originally learned to ride english many years ago and everyone on the team calls me the hunter rider lol.

The more I see crystals all over the buckle, the more I'm thinking I need to do the same!

Between the site Mango shared and your belt's price BA, I should've just asked you guys first!
