    Default Photos of bridle nameplates please!

    Dear COTHers, I'm a displaced Brit currently living in New Zealand and trying to describe to my darling mum what I would like for Christmas... Which is a Dyon bridle and a nameplate on it. Bridle is a tick- nameplate I need imagery for!
    It's not at all a done thing in the UK to have them so help? I think I must be the only person who buys up all the fancy stitch tack too hehe.

    Thank you, sorry it's such a yucky materialistic post, but it's taking my mind off barefoot rehab and the mastering of the kiwi language.

    Bro.

    Thank you so much! What about where to place the plate? Im trying to describe where on the crown/head piece it should go now.. have visions of a bridle arriving with a nameplate on the noseband!

    I like the look of a small name plate on the left side of the crown piece, just above or below where the browband sits. I find it to be an indiscrete place. I've seen it on the cheekpieces too but don't care for it quite as much as the crown.

    Why not ask your mom to give them to you separately so she doesn't accidentally 'ruin' an expensive bridle by putting the name plate in an incorrect position or attaching it wrong or crooked or something.

    Thank you so much- and dreaming and ElisLove, I'll send her those pics and she can see what's what. I bet it will arrive as 2 separate items as she won't want to make a boo boo!
    What lush pics too, I wonder what else the US horse world has that the UK doesn't hmmm ...
