Oakside Saddlery's Standard Horse Bridle Range
Patent Crystal Bling Bridle - 'Oak'
Stand out from the crowd with the Oak Bridle from Oakside Saddlery.
The Oak bridle exudes splendour, brilliance, and radiance with a crystal padded browband and the softly padded patent leather raised cavesson noseband. The crystal browband can be made to your colours using a variety of beads and crystals making the Oak bridle exclusive to you!
The recent addition of the cut-back, padded headpiece increases the comfort to your horse without detracting from the style of a handmade horse bridle.
The patent, raised, and padded noseband is a cavesson design reducing the bulk behind the jaw.
Originally this bridle was only available in black due to the patent leather on the noseband but I have now received some dark havana patent leather from Metropolitian Leather so I can now make this patent bling bridle in black and dark havana.
Handmade in the UK by a traditional Cordwainer craftsman. Please note that reins and bit are not included.
Available in Pony, Cob, Full, Extra Full, and made to measure at no extra cost.

Information on ordering and sizes
Before placing your order please confirm that you have ordered the correct size and style you require as I do not accept returns for an incorrectly ordered item. This is due to the fact that every item supplied by Oakside Saddlery is made by hand to order and is therefore a special order.
Remember I don't charge any more for a made-to-measure or any other different size requirement.
The Hand making process
Each handmade bridle at Oakside goes through a number of processes before being posted to you.
Bridle butts are the the best selection of leather. I use 1st selection English leather only.
Each bridle component is made from the same bridle butt ensuring consistency in colour, thickness and strength. Each part is cut to size and prepared by hand, burnishing the edges, creasing, punching the holes and marking for the hand stitching.
All furniture (buckles and fittings) are made from stainless steel ensuring strength, durability, and rust prevention. Buckles are fitted using a reverse turn which again keeps the strength of the leather at the buckle. This also puts the best stitching against the horse's skin preventing any roughness. The back of the stitching is hidden in use behind the straps!
Each part of the bridle are hand stitched using a traditional double hand technique with waxed linen thread. This means that the stitches are interlocked and will not unravel like machine stitches can. All parts are hand stitched in this way, even the non-stress components like the noseband. It takes longer but provides for a better quality bridle.
Each part is finished, all loops are blocked and re-creased, the edges are polished giving that unique finish typical of a lovingly hand made bridle.
