    I need some help, and hope someone here can help. What are the two poles used by the horse to pull the carriage called? I can't find mention of them anywhere despite their being prominently displayed.

    Whew! Been working on this all morning. Decided to go with the two wheeler, but I still have a 4 wheel version.

    its hard to tell but I think the front of the cheek strap (the one head to bit) should probably go from the back of the ear where it is but run to where the right hand side currently is (it looks too far forward). Do you have the Classic or Western tack to look at? if not, when I wake up I'll do a render at approx. that angle so you can see what I mean.

    I was trying for a Western tack. But this is still a work in progress so suggestions from more knowledgeable people than me are welcome.

    ok, don't have time for a render, here are some inspiration.

    this one looks closest to what you were going for, tho not really western, more like a snaffle (ring bit) version of Harry's Classic bridle (which has a shank bit). (you don't normally see a noseband on western bridles, at least I couldn't find one that didn't have a shank bit).
    See how it goes straight from the top of the head to the bit, not so close to the eye.

    This is an English bridle but with a curved browband like you have

    And these ones just because I found them while looking for something similar to your and thought they were unique and pretty LOL also to show you the strips of leather don't have to be straight if you don't want them to be...

    Still working on the Bridle. But I think it's beginning to look good. Bridle3.png

    Hmm... having a spot of bother getting the harness right going under the horse's body.

    Right after I posted that last part I think I got it.
