I just found the most beautiful cordeo ever!!!
After the AND-clinic I was browsing through Josepha's shop, inspecting her great new set of cordeo's, and then I went to the tiny regular bridle section to look at the Spanish browbands and other nice stuff. And while I was looking through that, I saw the glimpse of a rein behind it.
So of course I dragged it out, and it turned out to be this great dark chocolate brown, extremely elegant, slim leather rein with double baroque silver(ish
) clasps on both sides where the bit should go. Of course no bit here: instead I asked Josepha to shorten the rein into a shetland-sized cordeo, and then add a metal ring in between the clasps of the bit to clip a leadrope in.
It's bee-you-tee-ful, exactly what I was looking for, so nice and slim for shetland size, and also made from very supple leather. About a quarter of the participants saw the rein too and 100% agreed with me, so it's not just a question of taste - it really is
And of course I'm going to place pics of it over here. So I'm just going to continue to dream of it for a few weeks and wait for it to come. Sigh... We'll finally have a nice cordeo!
