Question from an ardent cob and chunky horse fan.......

Have bought myself a TB, and apart from it not fitting, she looks ridiculous in Max's Rhinegold bridle, so I at least need a new noseband. Needs flash and crank fastening. Will post pic in a min. Any helpful suggestions please?:unsure:

Welcome to the world of TB's :D

I have a Kis Vihar custom fit bridle for my tb (if you look closely he has a 'H' embroidered into the headpeice :D)


I was really specific about wanting a Hunter bridle though. It has a flash attachment but we don't use that anymore. To be honest I didn't like any of the shop bought bridles, they all felt a bit cheap where as this one was lovely and soft when I first got it :D

Don't go purchasing just yet - I think I've still got one of Peri's snaffle bridles hanging around you can try on her - will have a hunt tonight, if she is anything like P you will need a mix of fullsize and cob so off the peg just doesn't do the job. Won't be any reins on it as I swap mine over, but I know you have plain reins anyway and all of mine are the dreaded rubber.
