Last year I posted that I was soooooo bored with making plain hunt cavesson bridles, well about a dozen one off bridles I had an order to make a headcollar to measure with a few ' stars ' stitched in --- I'm not so bored now.
Here is the finished piece, what do you think.

Completely hand made - stitching as well, the stars are stitched at 16 per inch ( barking mad as usual ), it also has a padded nose and headpiece using the best english leather and solid brass fittings.

The headcollar in the picture is about USD $120 including postage .
It has triple thickness leather , triple row hand stitched, solid brass fittings, and a padded nose and headpiece - the one in the pic is black with yellow stitching - but brown with brown ( or yellow ) stitching is not a problem
You could have different designs other than stars stitched in , as long as the pattern is not too complex - someone mentioned shamrock ( I'm guessing they are Irish ) which would not be a problem, I could also do lightning flashes , clouds etc - below are some examples of what I've stitched into nosebands , browbands - so you can have an idea.

Lifeofriley - Newmarket Tan is no problem as I have it in stock - the padding would have to be regular brown. Tobacco would have to be ordered in as I don't currently have it.
I do have 7 different shades of brown at the moment - what you could do is send me a picture of the colour you want - It can be difficult to get the shade precise from a picture but I will have a better idea of what you are after.

Smrobs - if you send me a picture of what you are after I will be able to give you an answer about if I can make it and what the price would be.
I do have a western bridle, for a customer in France, to make within a week or two so will post photo's of the finished item when I've done it.
