    I have an EqueSport Browband and I absolutely love it. Used it for the first time a couple weekends ago and got lots of compliments on it. It is rather unique but not to shiny that it stands out completely.

    Although I got so busy that I took down my site, BeautifulBrowbands, I am in the process of creating a PDF file to teach people how to make a custom browband of their own, using an existing channel type browband and just replacing the run-of-the-mill beads with their own design! I've had a few people test the instructions for me and as soon as the bugs are worked out, the product will be available. And of course, on-line help will be available via e-mail if anyone gets stuck!

    For those of you hoping I was going to re-introduce the browband kits.... it isn't in the plans currently...sorry!

    I am one of the guinea pigs for No Jacket Required.

    This is my first attempt and after deciding on the beads and sitting down to do the sewing it was an evening project (While hubby watched hockey ).

    I liked the browband but it had come with a tiny cheezey strand of rhinestones. No Personality!

    I went for simplicity and elegance. It is for a white pony and is my attempt to so impress the judge with my handiwork that they won't notice that said white pony likes to roll in his own filth.

    Gosh Ibex, I really like the first one with the silver. I might pm you about that one.

    As for the patent leather, I found one that is like any normal raised black leather browband only the raised part in the middle is patent. I was thinking black patent on black leather for just a little shine.

    My bling browband was made by Christine Lima of Designer Browbands. I'm giving the link to her contact page of her site as my browband is the one on the bottom of the page on the right. http://www.designerbrowbands.com/Contact_Me.html

    It is padded, very soft, and she set up a few different designs and sent photos to me, until we both were satisfied that it was what I wanted. I will be in touch with her again to get one for my brown bridle.

    I'm just a poor cousin to Jayne and Ibex and I don't make them for any one but myself -- but here's one of my browbands:

    It's buffalo hide and Swarovski crystal. Yah, I made it myself. I'll never use buffalo hide again. Too soft.

    I have one of Janet's for my horse and I just love it! Quality is top notch! My friend also had a browband and stock pin set. She got a browband that "snaps" around the bridle so switching is a cinch (her "working" browband she got from Janet has snaps as well!)

    I have a really nice blue leather 'snaffle bit' browband that would look nice on a headcollar that was made by http://www.bespokebrowbands.com/

    I no longer have that browband--or that horse. He retired and then someone adopted him from me, and I sold the browband on craigslist.

    In the meantime, I have a new horse, and here he is modeling a browband from the line that my trainer sells. He's in the first set of photos.

    Default People On Horses!

    I have 2 POH browbands that look as new as the day I purchased them. I use them everyday. If the leather wears out or you need them resized, POH will do it at a reasonable charge. They have the best IMHO.

    I still say you should make your own. They're easy and you can get a blank from Jerry's Harness that are padded and awesome quality leather.

    She also sells ones already made. I ordered one from there! This one

    Really lovely leather, and the beading is subtle, not overly "blinged" out. I love it.

    Think so? Go price everything and factor your time in as well. Make sure you give yourself at least minimum wage.
