    Blueberry Hill posted a photo of this young lady sporting her EIS shirt but I am drawn to this bridle! Has anyone seen one like this? Any idea on a manufacturer?!!??

    Small world -- used to show ponies with her when I was a kid... My guess is that the bridle is a D'yon or Antares.
    a horseless canuck...

    I think it's this one with the flash off.

    thanks Chezzie! it looks like the same one. I was really curious because I haven't really seen the diamond shaped noseband before.

    CWD also makes a bridle with a shaped noseband, although I've not seen one that was fancy stitched. I am guessing Dyon.

    It's the Dyon without the flash. I agree, they're lovely bridles. My horse has a tiny head which rather eliminates all possibilities of a chunkier bridle working... sigh.
    I've heard there's more to life than an FEI tent and hotel rooms, so I'm trying it.

    I saw these the other day in my local Dover store and was wondering what type of head it would flatter. That picture of it that the OP posted is gorgeous! Lovely bridle for the right type of head for sure! Very unique.

    You could always just send Ardie and e-mail. She is really nice and I am sure would be happy to answer your question.

    There's a Mark Todd one like that which "knocks off" the Dy'on and is cheaper.

    I love love LOVE my dy'ons... The ones I have (not sure of they all do) have a wider crown piece and have actually made a HUGE difference in how soft and supple my horse is. Pair that with the fact that they are gorgeous makes the fact that my bridle+reins+breastplate/running martingale = well over $1000, a little more tolerable

    Its a D'yon. This beautiful girl is local my circut and her lovely horse is a half brother to my new young horse. The photo is stunning and ought to be on the front of some publication.

    I agree, it's a great picture! Wish nice bridles didn't cost an arm and a leg. Sigh.

    Ooooo...beautiful bridle and horse.

    Paradox: I couldn't agree more with you--wish tack wasn't so expensive. Just saved up for a demo version of the CWD saddle I want and it's still a very hard bill to swallow.

    God bless husbands who understand their wives' obsession with horses.

    Everything old is new again. I remember when Arabian tack of the seventies had that kind of shape to the nose- and brow-bands.

    It is very lovely! I have a horse with a big head so I'm always looking for a bridle that will flatter him. I'm going to take a look this weekend.

    I just looked up the Mark Todd bridles and they do look like knockoffs!! I couldn't find any US retailers but willing to buy from UK for the price difference.

    vxf111- any idea on the quality? I know they probably aren't the near the quality of the Dyon (of course!) but just curious if they might be an acceptable (cheaper) substitute?

    Thanks for all your help COTHers. You guys are awesome!!
