I will post some, but you must promise not to tell Izzy that she looks a smidgen unattractive in them.
See? Striking white stitching, distinctive browband, cool wide/flat noseband... and her eyes closed and ears going every which way.
This is a little better. Not the cheap tacky reins that I'm probably just going to have to live with for a while. Oh well.
Funny sidenote: The only used or new version of this bridle that was available for sale was in oversize. At 16.0hh, Izzy is not what I'd consider oversize. However, I did lots of measuring and comparing published measurements, and I realized something.
This bridle is almost the perfect size for her. The browband is slightly roomier, but she kind of needed the room. The noseband is just right, the cheek pieces are not bad. The only thing that's long is the noseband hanger. I had to punch some extra holes in it, but the picture looks fine. I was thinking that I'd have to take it in and get straps shortened, but now I think it's fine.
Ok, I'm out. Need to pack and run errands. (PS I went running and to pilates this morning. Win!!)
