Could be dyed black if you like. These old parade bridles are getting harder and harder to find I would guess its from the 40s or possibly later. This vintage set has been week maintained for its age with new replacement matching crown piece and cheek strap. I will include the old ones as well if you like.A place to add rein chains is also on the bridle although I do not have them. They could easily be added.
