Category: English Bridles
Purchase: I bought this bridle from Saddlery4U on an eBay auction because I wanted a bridle with a padded headstall and was unimpressed with my previous Kieffer bridle. I paid $117.00 for it which included shipping.
Likes: I like the padding on the bridle. The leather, stitching, and buckles seem as nice or nicer than my Kieffer but I haven't had it long enough to know how it will wear over time. It came with rubber reins which I will save for cross country as I think they are overkill for the dressage arena.
Dislikes: These bridles run HUGE! And, the manufacturer's specs are way off. So, I had to pay shipping twice...once for the first bridle and then again to ship it back to get a smaller one. Also, the noseband is really wide. My large TB still looks silly in it so I replaced it with a smaller noseband. It really looks like it is made for a draft horse.
Quality: The Bridle seems well made. The stitching looks nice and it actually looks like a much more expensive bridle. The padding is also very nice and soft. I haven't had it long enough to know how it will break in.
Summary: If the bridle holds up over time, I would probably buy it again especially now that I know to order a smaller size than what I normally would. If nothing else, it's a relatively inexpensive schooling bridle. The large noseband kind of bothers me though.
