Austen from Guinness on Tap had a post about Frankenbridles....well I have one that is getting more and more Franken ...
I started out with this bridle:
|The leather is super nice, horse-sized stamped "Made in England" - If you want it, it's looking for a new home...|
but then I spied this used one (which was a better look for dressage lol)
and used my work-a-day reins..
Then, with some muscle gain across the poll....I noticed Tesla's 15in. crown piece was getting snugish around the ears...so, I went looking for a 16in. plain padded, black-on-black browband...(those actually aren't super easy to find!)
and I found an Anky one online for $10 shipped - the ad said wear on the back...but I've never seen browbands wear like that and looking closely at the pics - I was ready to bet it was just in need of a good cleaning...
and I was right!
The Anky browband cleaned up like new - and Tesla can flop her ginormous ears in comfort once more!
The next addition to the frankenbridle?
Some glow-in-the-dark for winter....
