    Default Why the long face?

    I have a horse with a very long face. I was wondering (visually) what will shorten his face? A wide nose band? Any other suggestions?

    I like my long-faced horse in a well fitted wide nose and....but with no padding. The bit sides ( d, full cheek, loose ring) also make a huge difference. I'll post sme pictures when I turn my computer. I still can't figure out how to do it from my iPad.

    And I do not know how to post pictures here. I see we can go into photobucket but it seems to stall out on me. I think my operating system is too old.

    Okay so you do the flat nose band sort of a la 1960s. I'll be very curious to see the bit you've chosen. Full cheek, would that lengthen his face too much?

    I have a long headed TB as well and love him in the wide nose band. My profile pic shows it, with an eggbutt.
    And nothing bad happened!
