Category: English Bridles
Purchase: I bought this bridle as a show bridle for my hunter mare. I paid about 270.00 for it at netequestrian.com. Unfortunately I am going to return this bridle due to poor quality. I had hoped it would be of similar quality as my Arc de Triomphe imperial bridle but it is nowhere close, so it will be going back.
Likes: I like the padding on the crown and nose band of this bridle.
Dislikes: The leather is very stiff and dry. Some of the stitching began to pull out as I adjusted the bridle to the correct fit. I also noticed that the fancy stitching on both the nose and brow band is considerably off center!
Quality: Poor quality and construction in comparison with other bridles of this price range. It came new with stickers on the back of the leather stating "made in india" which may account for the quality issues. I am surprised that a designer of the reputation of Peter Menet would want his name associated with this item.
Summary: I would not recommend this bridle. If you are looking for a quality bridle I would recommend Arc de Triomphe. Even my Bobby's schooling bridle is better quality.
Usefulness Rating: 3.33333 out of 5.
