A VERY lighthearted thread.

I'm being lazy, I'll admit it. I want to find a more decorative (yet tasteful) browband for my dressage bridle. Something for my chestnuts. Maybe brass. Since my bridle didn't cost THAT much I don't want to spend too much for a browband (plus it is nice to feel like you can get something else if your taste changes). I know there is art out there, but unless it is a bargain, I'm not going to spring for it (this time).

Any ideas? Great deals?

Try dressage extensions. They had a BUNCH on sale when I checked, some really neat ones! Unfortunately for me, very few in OS :(

Ok, another question. I, personally, am drawn towards gold or brass, but my bridle has silver buckles. Would it be tacky to do brass on a browband of a bridle with silver buckles?? I just can't picture it.

I have an alternating brass and nickel clincher browband on my jumping bridle (which has nickel buckles). I don't know if they make them for dressage bridles, but that may be an option for you. I think it's really classy looking.

simplechange browbands are great- you buy the brow band, then you can change the bead strings as often as you want. I have about 6 bead strings, and i just pop them in and out depending on what "color" my mood is

You can click on my siggy and contact me through the site...we could make something up just for you and the price is probably less than you're thinking too. ;)

I second that, can't wait to see how Oliver's turned out. Otherwise Dressage Extensions- they always have a nice selection. Dover and maybe Smartpak- it's worth a look.
