Lately, this issue has been crossing my mind a lot in response to certain horse "fads". I've been around/riding horses for the better part of my life so I've seen quite a few trends come and go. Some of them I happily take part in (all the blingy browbands!) but some I just don't understand. Lately, what has really been getting to me comes from my much beloved dressage world. And their double bridles. More specifically, their double bridles with big fat nosebands. And that fact that it does not seem that anyone makes a double bridle with a normal sized noseband anymore!
Today for example, I wake up to an email from Smartpak proclaiming a 40% off bridle sale. Well doesn't that sound wonderful? You see, I have a double bridle for Mollie (complete with fat ass noseband) but it's never really fit her no matter how I've tried to adjust it. So I'm always casually looking for a replacement. I went on the Smartpak website and there wasn't a double bridle to be found without the fat noseband.
