I know a few people with albion bridles and they seem to have wide nosebands

Hennigs have wide nosebands but are outrageously expensive

Hennig's

I bought mine a few years ago when they were merely expensive and not outrageously so....

euro american saddlery often has deals on them though. I recently bought a hennig snaffle and (maybe since it was the 3rd briddle I've bought from them) they gave me $300 off.

Check out Rhinegold bridles. I have the double in that brand and it has a very wide noseband. You can google to find them at a saddle shop in England (or on Ebay) and they have great service and you get them quickly.

You might want to check out eBay. I just bought a custom made bridle with swarovski crystals for $160 Canadian including shipping from England. The quality is well surpassed of that of the Stubben and Passier bridles I looked at and at less than half the price. I highly recommend them.

Here is a link to their eBay store.

I'd want to go the other direction for my horse, because she is so dainty, but Jerry's Harness Shop bridles are American-made and they use wide leather. I have their narrowest for the maresy and it's much too wide! The bridles are beautiful and well-made, too.

Passier makes a very wide noseband, the call it their French Crank Cavesson. My old trainer used it on her Otto Schumacher bridles, and it looked fabulous.

I agree with you that the price on her tack (Heritage, made offshore) is good, but the quality, not so much - jmo!
