I found a picture of a really neat charro bridle a couple days ago, and decided to try to make one.
I haven't done much studio wise that's worth posting, so I decided to share some of my reference photos I have stockpiled. None of these are mine, unless otherwise noted. I do not know who to give credit with most of my photos, unless it's copyrighted. I do my best though! You're more than welcome to save these and use them!
Here's part two, this will hopefully cover the buckle and crownpeice, the throathlatch, the bottom of the noseband, and the connector strap.
One other thing that just occurred to me that I should post, the names of different parts of the halter. So here it is:
I'm splitting this into three parts, the first and second part will cover the halter, the third part the lead.
Grosgrain or ribbon
Halter plates from Rio Rondo(optional)
Buckles from Rio Rondo(optional)
Thread in the same color as the halter(optional)
Pliers without a spring(optional, but highly recommended)
This is my first time doing a tutorial, so hope you like it! If there's anything you'd like to know how to make, feel free to leave a comment, I just might be able to whip something up.
Wire cutters(I use telephone wire cutters, but they can get torn up easily)
Sandpaper(I use 220 grit)
Glue(I use 527 multi use, also known as Duco Cement)
Small bowl to keep the sharp ends in one place
I've been in the model horse hobby actively for about four years. My main interests are customizing, tackmaking, and showing, although I do like to venture into the different aspects of the hobby also. Aside from model horses I ride real horses, and also dabble in leather crafting. Hope you enjoy my blog!
