    Default Fancy Emblems for outside of Show Blinkers - where to find?

    Hey all,

    I figured I'd ask the collective COTH wisdom.... do any of you know where I could find the fancy emblems for the outside of a set of Show blinkers? You know the gold ones that are rounded, but maybe have a letter, or a fluer-de-lis, or some fancy ornate crest to them?

    I have a friend who bought a harness recently with crappy cheap emblems on the blinkers... and thought I'd try to find her some nice ones for replacements... but I haven't a clue where to look for them.

    Anyone have some suggestions?
    Thanks very much, J

    I got ours at Driving Essentials in PA. They are very nice quality (we just put the letter "M" - our last initial - on the blinkers and tear drops on our harness). I think they got them from Smuckers and put them on the bridles and harness....I know Smuckers is now gone but I'm sure you can contact Driving Essentials and they will know where to get some from.

    Actually Smuckers is still around, it was taken over by some of the employees. I haven't ordered from them in years, but here is the website.

    My show harness was made by Greg Hunt. He put my last name initial on the blinders...very nice letters, kind of scroll. I'm sure he could do something for you. You would have to send your blinders to him.
