  • "Unicorn" drop noseband?

    Trying to find a drop noseband that measures around 8.5 inches from ring to ring. Anything longer and the noseband rings rub on the bit. Granted, not the end of the world but annoying. Horse size but might could use an oversize in a pinch.

    I'll probably end up having to have one cut down or one custom made (any ideas where?) but thought I'd check the COTH collective wisdom first. Thanks!

    Nunn Finer makes an adjustable drop noseband. I use the PS of Sweden Pioneer, which is their version. It's also adjustable - albeit in a slightly different way.

      Contact Solo Equine and they will give you the measurements for theirs

        Check out Sabre leather from the UK. The rings on the drop are triangle shape so the drop actually fits much better than the ones that have round rings.

          Check out Wolds Exclusive Bling. She is in the UK and makes M2M bridles. Does an awesome job

              Try Wayne at The Country Saddler in Pinehurst, NC. He makes bridles. He could make one to your exact specifications.

                Caldene makes a triple adjustable one also:
