View Full Version : help me find a bridle for my haflinger?
Jun. 1, 2010, 10:08 PM
i've tried a few, but they just don't fit my haflinger. what i need is a soft nylon bridle, (although leather would work too!) but it needs to be lime green to go with her very spiffy new saddle pad.
i have a matching breast collar already, but the bridle is the hardest part. i have found horse size and mini size, but not cob size, which is the closest to a haflinger size.
i don't care for biothane, as i find it too stiff, i'm hoping for something pretty soft in lime--which looks great on my deep copper haffie.

My Haflinger wears regular horse size on the last couple holes. He's got a big head. I also ride him in an open bridle most of the time, so he usually doesn't need a noseband, although he does fit a cob noseband on the last hole.
His color is pretty pretty turquoise.
I like these:
You can get them in lime, and cob/Arab size.
Lots of nice nylon tack for you. ;)

I have a fjordx and a perchiex. Neither are huge horses but they do need 17 inch browbands with reg horse cheek pieces. Some oversize bridles work ok, but not much adjustment smaller left.
For western, I have been getting Buckaroo leather bridles. I have two in the reg large horse and they are about as small as they go in the cheek pieces, but the browbands are perfect. The last bridle I had made for the same price. It was a single ear with a throatlatch, regular size bit end to end. Perfect. John at Buckaroon leather was happy to do whatever customization I wanted. Shorter cheeks with longer throat latch and browband...no problem. He even has side pulls and loping hacks in custom sizes. Also you can choose your leather color, light or Hermann oak, dark or maybe even black. Just call and ask.
