This is a surprisingly easy weekend instructable. It uses a few belts that we got at the Op Shop few a few dollars.
Its not a show bridal like our black leather one which we will be using as a guide but its soft and comfortable and our horse wears it around the paddock on a weekend ride. Its a Barcoo bridle if you want to know.
I'll show you how to make our one but you can easily use your own measurements

Step 1: Materials

*Sewing machine
*Craft knife
*A bridal or measurements for your horse.
*Old belts (cotton ones aren't as showy but nicer on the horse)
Check the pictures for belt types
*One belt has to have two reasonably sized ring catches

And thats about it! Told you it was simple.
I will be going to the thrift store asap now lol
Great idea for a custom bridle! You horse seems to really like it. Mine gets that relaxed &quot;purring&quot; look when I bridle him, too. My horse's head is not quite draft horse size, but bigger than a regular horse's, so this could really work out for us! Thanks for the 'ible!<br>
The Horse is in bad shape.......pull up your socks and take proper care of it!!!!
No its not its just really old. Please don't comment without context
Yeah..sorry my friend wrote the comment....

Great idea. the horse looks fine, on the last pic he's got good sheen to his coat.
Thank you
Great repair and reuse! I'll post it to my horsemad friends.
