Step away from the computer,

I know this is a US company but they do ship to Aus ...

My new mare has an awkward head - cob sized but with a full sized browband and noseband. This company lets you buy each piece individually to make up a full bridle.

Has anyone tried? Reviews? Good or bad ...

Thank you! Very Happy

Why not try Flexible Fit Equestrian which is in Commercial Section. Victorian based business which does the same thing Smile

I would be interested to see how you go.
I have a Qh with same type of problem.
I have mixed and matched a cheap english bridle.
But do fine us western style bridles are good for her.
Which I use mostly. Smile

20 years ago you used to be able to buy individual pieces for bridles in horseland!

Funnily enough, this subject came up yesterday as my SIL is having issues finding bridles to fit her youngster. Wish I'd have seen this thread yesterday Very Happy

Will put her onto all these guys, thanks!!!!

Step away from the computer,

Thanks LuLu and Loubar - I've looked at the FFE ones and while I like them a lot and think they would look beautiful on my gelding and his big chunky head, I think that the wider cheek pieces on them may swamp her little head.

Does anyone have pics of theirs on a horse with a smaller, more refined head?

Mainie - she'll end up with a Mal Byrne but not just yet. Pep didn't get his until I had fallen in love with him.

Step away from the computer,
PA - have a look on uk eBay, I don't know what the quality is like (or what you are specifically after) but 'heritage' brand sell parts separately.

Otherwise just buy 2 bridles, mix and match, sell the rest?

Whenever I buy a new bridle I get the cheek straps shortened by the saddler. It costs $30.
