Purchase: I am an endurance rider and after many years of distance riding in all types of weather, muck, and mire, I decided to try out the infamous biothane endurance tack. I search online for sometime, paying attention to quality and construction of the product I was looking for and found what I needed in the Original Halter Bridle offered by Running Bear. The halter bridle combo offered many customizable options, including different color biothane choices, overlays and halter fit. The total cost for the bridle and set of matching reins (also customizable) was about $100, a very competitive price compared to the other types/quality bridles offered by other biothane makers.
Likes: This particular set was fun to build. Their website offers realtime color choices of biothane, and you can even opt for a contrast overlay color as well on the cheeks, nose and browband. This product can be customized to fit your particular horse and not just by your typical cob, horse, draft sizing, but actually by what 'looks good'. For example, you can order your bridle as narrow as a half inch width on the bridle strapping itself if you have a small Arab type head, or as large as one inch width for larger horses. You can choose to have the halter portion of the bridle fit like an actual halter with adjustable chin and it all comes with brass fittings for durability. The reins can be color matched to your bridle, and come in different widths and the options for different types of grips as well.
Dislikes: This product is top of the line.
Quality: The quality of the halter bridle is outstanding. Everything is stitched by machine and sewn incredibly well. Overlays are snug and do not rub, and any area that touches the horse provides a smooth surface that won't chafe or rub in anyway.
Summary: These bridle are the best quality made biothane tack available. There is a tremendous amount of workmanship built in and did I mention you can wash everything in the top rack of the dishwasher?
