When the order came in I hoped the color combo wouldn't end up being a little lackluster, but these black and tan stirrup buckle belts in mixed patterns have ended up being some of my all-time favorites!

About

Handmade Ribbon Browbands, Belts, Dog Collars and More. Show your true colors!

Even though I was born and raised in New York City, I’ve loved horses and ridden all my life. Not long after I graduated from college, my family moved to Dublin, Ireland, where, as usual, I spent as much time as I could around horses. I loved the colorful ribbon browbands that I saw on Irish horses and ponies at shows, events, and stable yards, but I never knew where to get them. So, back in the States (now in the Virginia Hunt Country), I started making them for my own jumpers.

Seeing them on my horses at shows, people often told me, “I’ve always loved those ribbon browbands! Where did you get them?” So, I started making them for other people’s horses. One Christmas I made matching belts for friends and soon after, I began getting requests from their friends. I couldn’t leave my dogs out, so I made collars and leashes for them too.

There’s an old horseman’s proverb that goes something like, “Every rider gets one great horse.” If that’s the case, then smart, catlike Boy-O-Boy was my great horse. “Bob” is semi-retired now, but he’s still as ferocious a competitor with my daughter in the short-stirrup ring at the age of twenty as he was for me as a jumper at the age of six – or sixteen.

Each of the main Boy-O-Boy Bridleworks weave patterns (like many of the color combinations) is named for the first horse to wear it. Boy-O-Boy was the first horse I made a ribbon browband for; because he started it all, I named the company after him.

FAQs

DO YOU MAKE ITEMS AS HORSE SHOW PRIZES AND SOUVENIRS?
Yes, I'm happy to make belts, browbands, or keychains as prizes for your horse show or souvenirs of your event! You can even match your competition's colors and have your logo embroidered.
To ensure on-time delivery, I'll need the following AT LEAST 4 WEEKS BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF YOUR SHOW:
1) your ribbon, leather and hardware choices,
2) your logo files (or copy), if you'd like embroidery.
Please convo me for more information.

CAN I ORDER BOY-O-BOY BRIDLEWORKS ITEMS WITHOUT THE GREEN TAGS?
No, sorry. I work hard to make every single Boy-O-Boy item myself, by hand. The green tags are not only integral to the small brand I'm trying to grow and the design of all the items I make, they're in effect my signature. Nothing I make ships out without them.

WILL THE "TAILS" ON YOUR TRADITIONAL RIBBON BROWBANDS SPOOK MY HORSE?
No, when properly fitted on your bridle, the ribbon tails by the loops on my traditional ribbon browbands will fall within your horse's blind spot. When finished and trimmed, the tails typically measure about 2"-long and are too short to flap into your horse's eyes or ears. Versions of these ribbon browbands (and their tails!) have been in use for centuries in Europe, particularly in the British Isles. But if you're still unsure, I also offer a "Polo Finish" browband without the ribbon tails.
