Category: English Bridles
Purchase: I purchased the bridle at my local tack shop on sale for about 180.00. The reins were also on sale for around 80.00. I needed a bridle for a new horse.
Likes: The leather is very soft and breaks in extremely fast. It also takes oil well, becoming a very rich beautiful havanah with red undertones. Loved that color.
Dislikes: The sizing seems tricky. They run large so I purchased a full bridle with cob cheeks to fit my QH. The noseband stretched so much (2 holes difference) within a month I could no longer adjust it properly. The cheeks stretched one hole each. The reins had a lot of stretch and give which I did not care for while riding. The bridle became saggy and was just way too soft for my liking. You have no choice but to oil the already soft leather in order to get rid of that nasty orange color they come in. I don't think Edgewoods really need the oil it takes to make them dark...it compromises the leather.
Quality: Seems to be very well put together with quality materials. I liked that the leather was soft, but I don't think it makes sense to have to use oil to darken such a soft leather.
Summary: Edgewood bridles and reins are very well manufactured. I didn't like the end product after a few coats of oil and light use. If they made them in a darker color I MIGHT try again, but not for that much money!
