    Default bridle suggestions to match prestige saddle

    I need some help deciding on a bridle to buy that will match my Nona Garson prestige event saddle-its the awesome orange-ish color....not sure what the proper name for it it. Its not my favorite but it fits my horse well so its what it is.

    Anyways, Im having trouble figuring out a bridle that will match in color. It seems that a nona garson bridle doesn't exist anymore. I was looking at the Prestige flash bridles but Im afraid that tobacco will not match. I need a flash bridle in cob size.

    Thanks!

    I found a nice Stubben Bridle that has padding that matches the Prestige Orange perfectly. I can't exactly remember the color combo but the rest of the bridle leather is a bit reddish, rather than that deep chocolate. My horse was dark bay and it looked really good on her.

    stubben tobacco http://www.stubbennorthamerica.com/stubbenbridles.php
    Some of the beval line: http://www.beval.com/Products/Conque...d/1160001.aspx
    Edgewood will match, but not sure they do a flash http://www.edgewoodleather.com/bridles.html
    These look right, but I know nothing about them: http://horsesmart.ca/contents/en-us/d288.html
    CWD Tobacco is close, though may be a tiny bit darker http://www.sederholmselected.co.uk/C..._p/cwdssbr.htm
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    hot oil that sucker to darken it up.
    I had the nappy chestnut Stubben saddle and I used hot oil on it and it made it a lovely rich darker red/brown color.

    This is an ebay seller in the UK that is popular and has a good rating. I haven't ordered yet, but tons of sizes and choices. I'm going to order jonquil yellow crystals in a havanna browband. See what you think:

    Or orange padding:

    I was unaware of possible problems with this seller when I posted the above. See chronofhorse previous discussion:

    Just a quick note on FSS bridles, I had a very positive experience with them, bridle was shipped quickly and is excellent...have used it nearly daily for several months now and it only looks better. I would not hesitate to order from them again.
