    Default Where to find an English bridle for an Arab pony?

    There is an adorable Arabian pony my DD rides in her lessons. His bridle really does not fit, especially the noseband, which is way too tight (on the last hole, can't use the keeper, etc.) I'd like to get a new bridle for the pony but have no clue where to look for "Arabian-sized" English bridles.
    Can anyone point me to a few websites?

    A cob-sized bridle would probably be your best bet.

    Try Schnieders (Schneiders?).

    They have been oufitting Arabs forever and have lots of "downsized" versions of big horse tack.
    When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

    The horse world. Two people. Three opinions.

    Maybe find someone who will sell the individual pieces, and then you can match the color? When I got my Arab, I pieced together a bridle for him from my old horse and pony tack - he's wearing a pony crownpiece, cheekpieces, and reins, and cob browband and noseband.
    RIP Victor... I'll miss you, you big galumph.

    My Welsh-Arab cross, very Arab-y head, wears a Bobby's cob-size bridle -- fits him nicely and looks great!

    EXCELLENT idea! Thank you! I also appreciate everyone who chimed in with "cob size." I think he's squeezed into a regular pony-sized noseband.
