Okay, so here is my dilemma. I recently bought a new bridle for my Curly X Arabian cross. I bought the Pinnacle Comfort Plus on Schneider Saddlery. I liked it because the crown wrapped around on top, and I thought it would work well with my sensitive gelding.
My gelding has a nice looking head, but it is a pain in the rear end for fitting. He has a pretty wide head, but it isn’t very long. In this new bridle, he is two holes from the top on the headstall and the cavesson. It is a full size. The bridle has a crank, and I had to add a few holes for it to fit his wide face.
However, the issue remains with his browband. I feel like it is too low, and because of the widened crown, it cannot move up any higher. I feel that the crown piece might be too long for his poll.
I don’t know.
So now I’m kind of stuck. Do I hunt for a new bridle? Or do I search for a browband that has a wider end so it can fit closer to the crown?
