Extra Wide Browband???

Does anyone know where I can find an extra wide browband? My Perch/Paint gelding wears a horse size bridle, but the browband is narrow.

I had that problem with my mare. I finally gave up looking and made my own. I bought some nylon webbing the width and length I needed. Length was doubled over, loops sewn on each end. Then I did a ribbon weave on it and presto - done!

Most tack stores should have *just* the browbands for sale, even just plain ones, in different sizes. Most plain browbands here are roughly $5-$10 depending on leather quality, and size of course. The places I've been to have anything from pony, horse, warmblood/oversize.. usually you're out of luck to find anything specifically for a draft (if in the case a warmblood size doesn't fit).

PM NuttyEquestrian. He is a leather maker and I bet he can make you one to your specifications :)

MIEventer is not wrong

I have been making bridlework for 18 years so I could make you almost anything.
You can have a band made to your design - a plain browband, a V browband, a browband with your designed pattern stitched in to a browband in any colour you want !.
see pics below for some idea - the first pic is of shaped browbands, the second
is of coloured bands green, blue, purple and red ( as the dyes mix any colour is possible ), the third is beaded browbands
