Does anyone know where I can find a nice leather bridle that is open with side check rings? I have been checking different sites and haven't been able to find what I'm looking for. Thanks!

DoubleTT has them for around $60-$75 I can't remember. They are very nice bridles and they also have a very nice mini harness for not too much. You do have to state over or side check.

Ooops! now that I read your post again it is an open bridle you want. There are places you can get the straps that would hold the blinders but there are none. They change your closed bridle into an open bridle. Also, if there is a saddle maker near you, you can have these straps made so you don't have to replace your whole bridle.

Just contact your favorite vendor and ask for them. Almost anyone can make you a bridle like that! I actually need to get one too. It's just about the only thing I don't have.... rolleyes.gif

Unfortunately, I don't yet have a foavrite vendor for mini tack and none of my big horse regular vendors carry mini tack. I have a local man who makes tack, but he uses the synthetic stuff. Call me old-fashioned, but I really like leather better. Any suggestions for vendors? If it isn't okay to post them here, please toss me a PM.

I got mine made from KayJay tack right here on Lilbeginnings. Just e-mail and ask for open cheek peices for your bridle, you may have to remind her she had them made for me (Sherri Conley) and she should remember what to ask the maker for. Choose what finish also. Mine only took about a week to get here, and were very inexpensive. KayJay also gives a discount for LB members. Just look them up on the main page. Good Luck!

Might be a good idea to measure the width of the strapping of the bridle before getting in touch with anyone. Not all harness is the same, but any good saddler or harness maker should be able to help you.

Great! I'll give them a try. I did get a quote from For Minis Only of $290 for a multiring surcingle, an open bridle with a crupper and breast collar done in leather. I'm not sure how competitive that price is, so I'll check with the sources that you've mentioned and shop around. He won't be ready to start any of this with for a few more months, so I have time to check out all the options. But, I'd like to get it soon so that I'm organized (I'm pretty type 'A' lol)Thanks!

I had my open bridle with sidecheck rings custom made through Lasalle Harness. Just send them an email and they'll tell you what measurements they need to custom make one in your Mini's size. The leather is awesome and it has snaps to attach the bit to that make it so simple to change from one bit to another. The training bridle is right on their website. Pictured in Full Horse size, but they'll custom make any of their leather goods in Mini size with your measurements you give them.
