    Billets or Buckles?

    I’m having a wild New Years 😆 and am shopping for new Pelham roundings. I’ve always had billets, purely as that’s what I’ve always had. No real rhyme or reason. But seems that it’s really difficult to find English leather roundings with billets. What’s your preference? Buckles or billets?!

    I’ve got a 14.2 Connie with a difficult sized head! Not sure if this is a Dusty issue or a generic Connemara issue?! She could really do with a fly mask but I cannot find one to fit!
