Everyday bits and bridles.

This is a reblogged post, for those of you new to blogging. That means I didn’t write it, but I loved it enough to share it on my blog. Anne’s Lens-Artist Challenge post on everyday things this week inspired me. I live in cowboy country, but don’t ride, so this post about the equipment she uses every day is one that I want to remember. The photography is fabulous, too. Amazing post. See if you think so, too. 🙂

This week the Lens Artists photo challenge comes to us from Patti and she has asked us to feature Everyday Objects. So here are some things that are everyday objects for me and my horse Biasini. First of all here is a photo of Biasini in his double bridle, so called because it has two bits, a snaffle and a curb, and two reins.

I will now give you some photos of parts of that bridle. Here is the browband. I chose the crystals to go with Biasini’s coloring.

Here is a photo of three curb bits. The one Biasini uses is currently on his bridle so it is not in this photo. But it is most similar to the one on the left in the photo. I have kept all the bits I have used over the years, both curbs and snaffles, because I never know when I might…

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. For thirty-five years, I lived in the most beautiful area in Central Valley of California in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains minutes from the Sequoia National Park. As a child I moved from Indiana to Oregon. With my first husband I moved from Oregon to Colorado to California. Every time we moved, it hurt so much to leave friends. I never wanted to move again. After Mark passed, I married again. I told Vince that I could never budge from my roots in California. He said he loved the high desert. I don't think he ever thought he would realize his dream. In November, 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
