    Default Bridles with wider nosebands

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Preferably something nicer and used but I'm open to anything. Need something that can become something dark brown.

    How much do you want to spend? www.premiertackoutlet.com has new and used bridles, you might see what is on their website. They will also order any ADT bridle for you at a discount, and ADT does have a wide noseband version, I think it is called the Tribute?

    Aramas makes a very nice one, in the $200 range I think it is. Most all bridle manufacturers now make wide noseband versions, so you can find them in any price range.

    LOVE my wide noseband (plain not fancy stitch) New Cavalry bridle. Found it barely used at a tack sale. It's gorgeous and flatters even the most unfortunate of heads.
    It's not having what you want, it's wanting what you've got.

    EquusNow has the Aramas wide noseband for $ 250 and you can also buy the Edgewood headstall from them for around $ 270? I think Smartpak offers a wide noseband (Wellfleet?) for around $ 250 as well

    I think Bobby's makes one. A friend as the barn has one on her big jumper and it looks very nice on him.

    I have the Red Barn Fusion (I think that's the one?). Its a monocrown, raised and padded with 1 1/4" noseband. I got it from www.JustBridles.com and she was SUPER helpful. I bought mine when it was the same price to get it piece-by-piece or whole, but I think that's changed now. Gorgeous soft leather (I like it better than my Vespucci's and Prestige). Looks great on everything I've put it on!

    I also got a Red Barn for my big-headed warmblood. Unfortunately I don't remember the exact one, but it was a standard model from our local tack shop. Really nice quality, and only around $150. Felt more like a bridle twice the price though.
    I like mares. They remind me of myself: stubborn know it alls who only acknowledge you if you have food.

    Love this look. I have contacted two local leather places to find out how much a wide, padded one will be (minus the fancy stitch).
