Xivo - the bridle in the photo is one of the more expensive options, it has a comfort headpiece, a padded browband and noseband as well as the specially designed patterns. EVERYTHING is hand made - the patterns are hand stitched at 16 stitches to the inch and the rest of the bridle is 12 stitched to the inch. Only the best English leather is used as are all the fixtures and fittings

The bridle pictured would cost ( at todays exchange rate ) about $200 - this would include reins and postage to the U.S. . A plain hunt cavesson would cost about $120 ( can't say for sure as it depends on the $/£ exchange )

The patterns alone took a day to complete - so make up your own mind if it's expensive or not

Xivo - there is a link to a photobucket account at the bottom of each post I make, if you click on it you will be able to look at whats been made this year.

I guess, by the NSW in your profile, that you live in Australia ( tell me if I'm wrong ) - I will have to look at the £/ AUS $ exchange rate and postage cost to give you an idea of prices for you.

what would you quote for a hanovarian bridle with the brown studded V- browband
i was also thinking like my initials in stitching and some other patterns say remove every second stud and fill that with patterns?
