Bitless Bridle - 2

Here's the cob bitless bridle I mentioned in my latest post:
Hazel leather, contrast dark havana paddings, stainless steel buckles and rings.
Unlike previous one, this has buckle billets and a protection under noseband buckle.

Reins not included in this case.

Bitless Bridle

I cut this one more than a year ago but I never found the time to work on this until last week, after I received a request for a similar item. Throatlatches are a bit too long, but I can always shorten them. Black leather, size full, raised brow- and nose-bands. Noseband is kept in place with regular hook-type bit billets, so it can slide left and right. Stainless steel rings act also as stoppers to this movement.
Adjustment buckles are on both sides of the bridle:

Soon I'll post pics of the one I'm making in these days, cob size and hazel leather.
