Western Horse Bridle W Sterling O/l Buckles + Circle Y Reins & Silver Avila Bit:
Up for sale is a used one ear western show bridle made by Champion Turf with Circle Y reins and a German silver mounted Bob Avila curb bit. The headstall is made from good quality double stitched dark/medium oil leather. There are braided kangaroo leather and rawhide accents on the single ear piece and cheek pieces. The engraved silver buckles are stamped Sunset Trails Sterling Silver Overlay. They have jeweler's bronze rope edges and measure about 2-5/8" tall and 1-5/8" wide. One crown piece tip is stamped Alpaca Mexico and the other one matches. The bit conchos also appear to be Alpaca silver but are not marked. As far as I am aware, the silver is all original to the headstall even though it is two different kinds of silver. The left side of the crown piece is stamped with the Champion Turf logo. This may be an older headstall.
The headstall can be adjusted from about 37" to 42" from bit end to bit end. It is in pretty good condition with normal wear although the crown piece strap has some deep marks across where the buckles had been set for a while- a photo is included. The leather is still strong.
The bridle comes with a pair of Circle Y split reins. They are stamped with the Circle Y logo and their number 4752 3469. The reins are approximately 7-1/2' long and 3/4" wide and are fairly stout. The reins are in good used condition showing normal wear including some scuffs. It looks like they were probably knotted at one time so there is some waviness near the rider end.
A Professional's Choice Bob Avila Collection silver mounted curb bit is included with the bridle. The loose jaw cheeks have engraved German silver overlay and measure about 8-1/4" long from the top of the bridlle rings to the bottom of the rein rings. The sweet iron mouthpiece is 5' wide and has copper inlay and a medium port. The bit was quite rusty so I cleaned it up some but it still has rust. It probably had an antique brown finish at one time but now is steel that has rust and/or some pitting- my photos should give you a good idea of the condition of the bit. You can still read Professional's Choice on the inside of the left cheek piece and Bob Avila Collection on the right cheek. Although the bit is rusty it is still very useable and some of you may prefer the patina. The bit comes with a curb chain that is in pretty good condition.
The Champion Turf headstall with Sunset Trails Sterling overlaid buckles, Circle Y reins and a Bob Avila German silver mounted curb bit sells with . Good luck and thank you for looking and for offerding.
Payment is expected within 6 days of the end of the sale.
