What style of headstall for Playboy?

I am trying to decide what style headstall would look best on my gelding, Playboy.

I'm looking for something that would really complement his square head, but it cannot have bling. This is for foundation and ranch horse shows.

So, browband? Or one ear? I found a slit one ear headstall with a Playboy Bunny engraved in the buckle, and OH GOSH so perfect! Bahah! But I want him to look his best, so what is ya'lls opinion?:)

With that face? Anything! GORGEOUS

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

Either a single or double ear. I think a browband would be too much on his face.

I love single eared headstalls.

I would go with a one ear. One ears make almost every pony look their bests.

It's called a counter canter...

I'm going to be the odd ball and say Browband with the Futurity Knot....I always like the looks of them on horses with heads similar to your guys. Scrat looks SHARP in a Futurity Knot browband, makes his head look even more refined then what it already is lol.

Training is how far it DOES go.

What bit are you riding him in? That will help narrow down your choices.

There is nothing cuter than a sweet face in a one-eared headstall. IMHO!

I've got to jump on the one ear bandwagon! (:
