    Browbands....what do you use?

    I've seen a lot of *bling* browbands which can actually look really nice on the right horse and then I've seen some that are just awful! What kind of browbands do you use? Do you have different ones for different competitions? Is it for your fashion or that of the horse? Come on, confess all!
