While in Zurich I was becoming very horsey deprived. When I visited a wildlife park I was enamored with the Przewalski horses even though they weren’t all that exciting, just because they were equines. Well, on the last day my husband and I decided to waste some time in the mall next to our hotel. At the top floor there it was….a pet store with a horse section!
I dragged my husband over there. Some of the stuff was more expensive than in the states but some were cheaper. One thing that caught my eye was a dressage bridle, but not just any dressage bridle. This one was London color (light) with reddish brown edging and, wait for it…. a crystal browband. I fell in love. On the normal side, it came with reins, was very soft leather, well made, and had a padded crown in addition to the padded browband and noseband. And, it was very well priced. Of course, I bought it.
I will only use it for schooling but I put it on PJ today and he looks fabulous, if I do say so myself. The picture below is of him in his new bridle. It may not be what every dressage rider dreams of but it makes me smile.
