I’m in the process of buying a new bridle and have narrowed it down to one that’s a normal/plain style and another that’s a figure eight. I’m terribly indecisive and have no clue which one I’ll choose, but I’d prefer to choose one with that would look okay with a fairly blingy browband.
I’m obsessed with curved browbands but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one in jumpers or eventing, only dressage. Is there some unspoken agreement that curved browbands are only for dressage? Would a browband with a very slight curve be too much on a figure eight?
