    Default Best Bridle for Ponys Head

    So I want to get my pony a new show bridle. I have a bridle addiction problem and even though he has a million other bridles, it doesnt hurt to have one more I have all different styles of bridles that Ive had on him , plain, padded, fancy stiched... the list goes on. But I cant figure out what looks best on his head. I think he looks adorable in any bridle. Hes a very bold Paint, with almost a solid white face and one blue eye. I dont want something thats going to distract from his face, but I want it to looks good on his head. Any Ideas?

    I will start by saying that I am not the fashion police. I don't keep up on current trends by any stretch of the imagination. Functional is the word that best describes me tack and riding attire.

    That being said. What about a raised fancy stitched bridle with no padding? I think it would look nice on him.

    Very cute boy by the way.

    No idea if you can get them on your end but I l-o-v-e the Highlander bridles. What's best: They come in sizes that will actually fit a good Welsh pony head and even Section A's aren't out of size for these
    I think the makers are UK-based and I've bugged my local supplier into getting them for me. I've had no luck with what's available here there either is no market for small and medium high quality tack or Kieffer don't bother.

    Default looks like even a cob size bridle might work ...I also LOVE the Bobbies bridles, I would stick with a dark color my self.
