    Default Can anyone find a Micklem Competition Bridle in Tobacco?

    I have a Micklem bridle in pony size/black for my one pony and absolutely love it! Of course, my other pony, despite being the same height (14.1 or so), requires the cob/small horse size.

    My jump saddle is a lovely dark chestnut color and I would love to find the Micklem Competition Bridle in a similar color. However, although it seems as if it used to be available in Tobacco (which matches my saddle) it's now only available in dark havana or black. I did a bunch of searches online and found it in Tobacco in pony and large horse but that was it.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Or know where to find one?

    Thanks so much!

    P.S. I know in the "big picture" world, bridle color is not something to worry about, but this bridle is a substantial investment for me and I'd love to find something that matches if possible.

    Thanks you! None of the ones I found on ebay were the right size if they were in tobacco (unless I totally missed one!). They have a pony one in tobacco for $98...I wish I could squish Rally's head into it! The other link is great! Thank you again!

    Dang...just checked out the HorseLoverZ Facebook page and it sounds like lots of people are having problems with the company. I'm not sure I'm comfortable ordering from them. I also went back and checked ebay and there weren't any bridles in tobacco in cob/small horse.

    Horseloverz is fine. Plenty of people on COTH have had issues on here as well, but it's usually around shipping times. If you pay with a credit card, there's literally no risk on your part. I order from them maybe four or five times a year when they run good sales, and never have an issue.

    I've gotten lots of stuff from HorseloverZ and never had a problem.

    Tack Room Treasures in East Berlin PA had one just last week when I stopped by their store! You could look their number up online and give them a call. They're a small tackshop, so don't know if you could get a good deal on it or not. Depends on how long it's been hanging in their store

    That was there when I was in about 2 months ago. I couldn't remember which color it was though.

    I ordered one from A to Z Pet Supply--only $169! And it will be here in 2 days. I've been looking at these bridles for a couple of days and the price ranged from a little over $180 to over $200 so I feel like I got a great deal! Thanks so much for all the recommendations!
