  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I'm in the process of having a bridle custom-made for my pony. We do low-level dressage and occasionally some local hack shows. The bridle will be brown, probably in an Australian Nut kind of brown. I have reached the time where I need to make a choice. Flat or stitched noseband. The pony is...

    so trying to buy a bridle from Dover. Found one I like but it has a crank noseband. I can't tell if the are allowed by USEF, as it says you must use a normal cavesson and not an "unconventional" one. However I cannot tell if a crank would be unconventional as long as I follow the two finger...

    I've never used or had to use a different type of noseband other than the typical one. I've so far heard of the crank, figure eight, and the flash, but I don't really understand the purpose of these... My opinion of them is pretty bad, and I believe that anyone who does ride in them just doesn't...

    my horse is currently in a cavesson noseband and a pelham with a curb chain, whilst i think the pelham suits him fairly well it also doesn't seem to, he's always tossing his head a round and always pulling for his head. he's a very strong and forward going horse but often he's able to just...

    I've been wanting to make a Noseband for one of my horses. Instead of spending a ton of money on one, I thought it would be fun to make my own. I have an idea in mind on what I want it to look like but no idea on how to start. Any suggestions help. Thanks in advance.

    Hello, I have two questions for you guys! 1.) What does it mean when a horses nose is always cold. Even in the summer, all the time my horse's nose is always cold. It is right where the noseband of a bridle or halter would set on her. It is not after work, certain times of day, etc. and all of...

    Yesterday I went to a barn to try three horses for lease(one of which I absoloutley love and will talk about another day) the owner seemed to want to tack up the horse by herself, and I let her. When she put on the (English) bridle she had the noseband already buckled and slid the noseband...

    HI Everybody I seem to be looking for some advice as usual. I have a pinto mare, farm horse used as cow pony\ cutting horse. More gathering than cutting. She's around eight to ten years old and wise to every trick in the book and then some. A little herd- bound as farm horses tend to be, but not...

    The reason I ask is my baby works better with a noseband and its amazing how much less the same bit costs without a noseband. Thank you guys, I know its got to be a dumb question, but I really don't know :/

    here are a few questions i have -- 1. Is there anyway to "tie down"( for lack of a better word) a flash if it cannot be removed from the bridle? I would like to try riding without a flash on and the one on my bridle cannot be removed. 2. how tight should the brow band be? 3. how do you find...
