    Default Inexpensive but nice pony bridle?

    We have leased DD a small to learn to do mini stirrup on and maybe move up to cross rails. Any suggestions on an inexpensive but nice looking show bridle? we have a cheap schooling bridle that I picked up a year ago when we thought we were getting a different pony, but it's ugly and I don't want her to show in it this year...

    Suggestions?

    We've been very happy with my son's Bobby's pony bridle. I got it from justforponies.com, and the leather is soft, stretching has been minimal if at all, and it has so far held up well.

    The Gatsby brand pony bridle is very inexpensive, but very nice. It runs about $40.00, no kidding and is more than nice enough to show in.

    www.shanestack.com usually has them.

    This is the correct one, but the picture is the wrong one.

    You can also get them from Horseloverz on ebay.

    I have two of these that I use as show bridles and I LOVE them! they are soooo nice and soft ,a really good color and seem to be able to stand up to the pressure ( I am tough on bridles )

    I third the Gatsby bridles! Mine has held up to over a year of decent use and benign neglect (I think I've cleaned and conditioned it 3 times). Check on Ebay--mine was only $16 plus shipping!
