Purchase: I ordered this bridle online from Dover Saddlery to use as my stadium/cross country bridle for eventing. It was on sale for $299.00.
Likes: This bridle is fabulous. The construction is top notch. The leather is high quality, and the padding is buttery soft. My horse has a sensitive ear, so I was looking for something to relieve the pressure around his ears. This bridle is cutback around the ears so that the crownpiece does not rest and put pressure against the ears. Also, the crown is slotted so that the caveson piece loops up over the crown piece and only the soft padding touches the poll. The actual caveson is wide so that pressure is distributed, and has a nice padded piece under the crank noseband as well. After comparing this to my old snaffle bridle, I could never go back, and I ordered the same bridle in black to use for dressage!
Dislikes: The sizing seems a little bit off. I ordered the full size, and it has a standard 15" browband. However, I had to punch extra holes in the noseband, yet am on the last hole for the throatlatch. My horse is a 17h dutch/TB, and has a pretty large head, so I was surprised that the noseband was so large on the full size bridle (they sell an oversize as well). Also, the leather is a little redder than it appears in the pictures, which look like a havana color.
Quality: Very high quality all around. The leather is very soft and the stitching is very tight.
Summary: I would highly recommend this bridle! Not only does it look great, but it seems like it is more comfortable for the horse as well.
