Over. I would think the brow band would pull at the hair otherwise.

Heeey everyone:)
I always put my horses forelock Over the browband!
I think it looks a bit more nice and may feel better for the horse!
But everyone has there opinion:)

Well, it seems over is the way to go. See in my avatar picture, I had it under, so you can see the silver do-dad on the brow band. But normally I put it over too. I don't know what I was thinking!!

Toby doesn't have much forelock, but it goes over.

I always put Daisy's under. She has a Swarovski crystal browband, and her forelock gets in her eyes and the wind blows it up and it tickles her ears if I leave it over. When it tickles her ears like that, she shakes like a wet dog. Ha ha.

For driving it has to be under because the blinker-holder is in the way, well it could be over but it would have to be split or pushed to one side and that would be rather strange looking. Calebs bridle has no browband, but if it did his forelock would be over, especially in summer to help shoo flies.

I always have my horse's over. I wish there was a way to make his pretty browband show though...

definitely over! Under just looks too messy :)

I always put Beau's tiny little forelock over it.

Also, shouldn't you have keepers for a full-cheek snaffle btw? v_v

Maybe I should just get a one-eared bridle, that way there is no browband, LOL. Gandy's forelock is very long (to her eyes) and thick too.
