I'm trying to be very very patient, and wait for Equine Affair in April in Columbus Ohio just to make sure I don't find something I like better. But I am looking into the Weaver Back in Black Collection. I am going to purchase headstall,reins,and breast collar. But as far as the nose band goes. Can this perticular nose band be used just for "decoration"? Or would it be more of a "purpose" nose band? My mare keeps her bit and takes it perfectly. just wondering if anyone had advise and do you think she would look good?. Also does anyone have black western leather saddle recommendations?
