What a beauty! He has exactly the colour I love, very sunny.

What is his breed, and how high is he? He looks like perfectly the right size for you, still being able to look over his back.

it's a quarter horse, although I always wanted a dressage horse, I fell in love with him :) he's great!
he's 1.50m still needs to grow 2 cm I think :) I can still jump on him so that's perfect :)

hihi, it was on sale and I couldn't leave it...
it's babyblue...
The colours are not so good, I took my camera, but the battery was empty, stupid!
so a friend of mine took pictures from her cellphone:

Do you think it fits? You can't really see I think, I'll try making better pictures...

Wow, it's very blue! :lol: I think that the color is perfect for these dark days when everything is grey :)

I can't really tell from the photos...is it a Dr. Cook Bitless, or is it a type of sidepull?

I'm definitely thinking that a very simple sidepull will be Tamarack's choice at some point. For now, I use a very light cavesson made from regular halter material, without all the hardward across the nose...the rings (three over the nose band) are just sewn in without the excess metal gear.

I am thinking though, that I will want to fashion a very special bridle for him one day...something light, and soft...with just two rings on the sides.

The blue looks really beautiful on your horse by the way!

@ Barbara; then we will have definatly more men here :)

@ Karen, it is a simple normal bridle with the reins attached were you normally would put the bit.
I rode bitless that way before I met Dr. Cook :)

OH, ok...that is the thought that I had for Tamarack's bridle one day. As long as the headstall comes with a noseband, I thought it could very easily be converted to a sidepull. Cool. If I cannot find the perfect headstall, I just thought I might get one made.

the colour was just too cute to leave it in the shop, I'll just try riding with it and if it doesn't work out I'll just use it when we want to photoshoot :)

hi

you can get those nice colors too for the Cook bridles. A special order and it would be made for you :-) they have blue, yellow, orange, green and red if i remember it well.

I have sold once a red one..but the most people like black or brown.
But yes it is posible :wink:

I like it!!
Nice contrasting color on your horse :)


@ Karen:
Maybe some of the endurance-tack will be usefull for you?? Bridles mostly are made from Biothane or Beta. That's a polyester webbing , wich is soft and flexible. It doesn't absorb sweat and is easily cleaned. You can choose any color you want. I know a lot of endurance riders who start with a bit, and then during the day leave the bit off. They just attach their reins to the halter and ride on. Also special side-pull bridles are availible and even bittless bridles (cross ropes)
