  • It's a tri colour double win for Silverburn Browbands! Posted on 06 July 2016

    It's been quite some time since Silverburn Browbands allowed the time off for me to have some fun with my own horses. After turning both the horses away for a year, I made a very last minute decision to take Wendy to a show yesterday having done nothing at all with her. I more or less took her out of the field where she has been living as an ornament, to a show, put in an on the day entry, expected her to behave herself and that she did. She won all 3 of her classes, was section champion then overall in hand champion. The supreme of the show went to the ridden champion and reserve which were thoroughly deserving, lovely horses and the judge said that she chose to go with maturity in her decision for her supreme and reserve supreme. The judges had absolutely fantastic comments which was wonderful given that it was only Wendy's 3rd show and the 2nd show i pulled out of. My favourite comment of the day was that she is very bling. I think so too, she has matured a lot and turning her away has done her a lot of good. Of course, she could not represent Silverburn Browbands without wearing a bespoke show browband herself and fly the flag endorsing the brand!

    Wendy is a very bright bay, and i've never really been all that happy with the team designs which she wears as red seems to feature as the predominant colour and it clashes against her therefore her show browband doesn't suit her that well. The horses go out in the company colours which are red, navy and gold, so I decided to go back to
    the original theme with Silver and have the browband predominantly navy with a hint of red and a highlight of gold. Her browband really suited her, it was very subtle and sophisticated but gave a great impact complimenting what is already a very beautiful horse without distracting the eye away from the horse as a whole. It's great to be able to create so many amazing bespoke show browbands for customers, however it is quite another to come up with something different for yourself whilst incorporating a design which has to compliment two horses, the other of which is a very orange chestnut!
