    Default ID for Monocrown Bridles

    Well I don't see anywhere to put a plate on my new Monocrown bridle. I hate the little tags. Anyone have any other ideas? Can you burn or stamp your initials on the leather somewhere?

    you most likely could burn your initials in but why not just put it on the crown? that's what I did for my monocrown.

    I bought a leather stamp for all my tack. My initals and then I hammer it and my tack is marked with out those awful holes. See if you could get a stamp?

    I have a Vespucci padded monocrown bridle and had no problem putting a nameplate on it.

    Okay.... I have another question....

    Do you put the nameplate on the righthand side or the lefthand side of the middle piece on the mono crown? Is there a correct side?

    Well not that kind of Monocrown. Its an Aramus bridle where the noseband strap slides into the Monocrown channel. Anyone managed to get a plate on that type without impeding its functionality?

    A nameplate can also be put on the nearside cheekpiece.

    I stamp my bridles anyway since a nameplate can be removed.

    The letter set was I think $14 plus shipping. You could also just do a star, or a flower, or whatever as an identifying mark.

    That's what the Engraver suggested I do with mine. I wigged out and didn't do it at the last minute because I just can't see putting holes there. But if you have the Smartpak/Aramas style monocrown-- there is no good way to put a nameplate on the crown itself.

    We pull out the noeband piece a little and put a short plate just off to the left of the Aramas logo piece. Works just fine. We use The Engrave plate #100

    the handle is another $4 and the mallet is $6. I think total with shipping was less than $30. I also use it to mark saddles, stirrup leathers, etc so it's paid for itself easily.
