STALLION ROLLERS (SHOW)
Asterisk Horse-collars & Harness manufactures three different styles of Draught Stallion Roller:
Australian-style Stallion Rollers [see photos below]:
Traditionally, this style has a leather roller-top, with a webbing girth (colours now available are red/white/gold or blue/white/gold) and a single, off-side side rein. This style can also be made with a matching leather girth.
English-style Stallion Rollers: [see photos below]:
This style is usually made with a special narrower, royal blue and white webbing roller top and girth, and normally comes with a backstrap/folded dock and a headcheck, as well as side-reins.
Scottish-style Stallion Rollers::
This style is traditionally made in Scotland and Northern England with a 'Scotch Top' or buckle-on rosette pad, with the rosettes made of intricately woven ribbon [see first close-up photo below], with both ribbons and webbing again in the royal blue and white colours. A less expensive version to that pictured can be made from royal blue and white patent [see second close-up photo below].
STALLION HEADSTALL (SHOW)
The Draught Stallion Headstall pictured below is much more ornate and substantial than the Dress Headstall previously shown, with heavy brass hardware and strapping as appropriate for showing a draught stallion.

WIGRAM PATENT CART SADDLE
The Wigram Patent Cart/Lorry Saddle is made with a pressed steel, rather than leather, housen, for the budget-conscious heavy horse enthusiast. This style of saddle is normally made with a check-lined panel, which is firmly straw-stuffed [to the traditional saddle standard] to ensure the comfort of the horse. The photo below shows such a saddle, mounted with the backband and shaft tugs.
