Its important to choose a style to match your horse's build, personality, and purpose. You'll also want to keep in mind the color(s) that look best with the horses' coat, as well as what matches your show clothes or stable colors.
Remember that pricing starts at $60, increasing by $4 for additional elements such as metal, crystal, a center focal point, etc.
Not sure where to start? We'd be happy to make some suggestions!
Based on the styles and colors you've chosen, we'll make 3 different beading options for you to choose from. One will be very flashy, one will have less sparkle, and the last one will be beautifully understated.
Choose your preferred shape. We have straight, Dutch drop or wave, and v-shape browbands. Each comes in several different colors to choose from. If you're unsure, we'll be happy to make suggestions.
At this phase, we'll also verify the size. We currently offer Mini (13"), Cob(15"), Horse/Full (16"), Oversize (17"), and Draft (18"). Special sizing for Double Bridles also available.
At this point we can begin to assemble your custom browband. Your chosen design is strung with heavy beading thread, attaching the center bead first if it has a distinguishable middle. We'll then proceed to sew the beads to the browband, using two threads (one for each side) while checking to see if any additional beads are needed to ensure your browband looks it's best.
We'll finish securing the line by sewing it through the end of the browband, securing it with a knot tied multiple times so it can't be pulled through. The excess thread is cut off and sealed with a dot of glue to conceal the knot ends.
We'll send you some photos of the final product for your approval. We want you to know exactly what you're getting so there won't be any surprises.
Once you've approved the final product, we'll send an invoice for payment. Once payment has been received you'll receive shipping details and a tracking number for your order.
We'd really like to see how your custom browband looks on your horse. Feel free to send us some pictures!
