Category: English Bridles
Purchase: Stopped in at Greenhawk Tack; also available online; paid $20.00 on sale, regular retail $30.00.
Likes: INEXPENSIVE- Where can you get a leather bridle for $20.00? Definitely good for training and casual riding; so far have had no incidents but I won't cry if I do. Looks and feels so much nicer than a similarly priced nylon alternative.
Dislikes: Well, it's twenty bucks; I didn't pay for high quality leather and I didn't get it. I also didn't get my choice of colour - they only have one; all-purpose brown.
Quality: Well, you definitely get what you pay for; it has some discolouration from the type of leather protector that they use that I honestly haven't tried to remove. Leather is stiff; but both it and the stitching has held up well over the year that I have been using this bridle. Honestly; the construction is better than I've seen on some much more expensive bridles.
Summary: I honestly think everyone should have one or six; now that I've used one, I would have paid $30.00 for it, and still felt I got a deal. It's worth it for the relief alone; I can tack up to ride in the rain without worrying about my more expensive tack. I have a few more on order now that they've gone on sale again.
Usefulness Rating: 2.75 out of 5.
