I've spent the morning googling to find a halter/bridle combo for my husband's SSH, who is 17.1 hands with a big old noggin. Think TWH long with draft-like girth. So a "horse" size just won't do.

I found some halter-fabric ones, but my DH won't tolerate royal blue or pink on his boy. I'm looking for leather, or at least brown in color. Traditional looking. I have the Tucker lite combo for my TWH -- but it doesn't come close to fitting hubby's horse. Can anyone help?

For the record I actually think they're a bit of a pain in the neck to put on, but are great if we have to stop on the trail. We do a lot of trail work while we ride, clearing and cutting. It's nice to be able to switch out so easily.

I love the snap on/off browband style. Much easier than the bit attachments and then I can use my rope halters if I want. I have the one from Long Riders Gear, it is very nice and it comes in an oversize.

They make these custom sized . And come in brown too.

Thanks to both of you! Measuring his current headstall, which was custom made for him, I do think we need a custom fit. This is perfect!
