Category: English Bridles
Purchase: I bought this bridle for around $60 in a local tack shop.
Likes: I like all the options that this bridle has. I wanted something the had nice stitching and was padded. The sizing is perfect. I ordered a cob and this fits many horses. I had a hard time finding a cob size that didn't run too big or too small. This one looks nice on horses who need a cob size. The bridle isn't bulky and looks nice on most horses.
Dislikes: The leather laces reins weren't very comfortable. Thin and non grippy. I quickly changed them out.
Quality: After using the bridle a couple times a week for a few months, it's in pretty bad shape. Looks like this one last less than a year for schooling. My Dover schooling bridle has outlasted this one by 4 years. My other $50 bridles were a better buy.
Summary: I've seen better quality in $50 bridles. I would say this as lower quality than kincade. But this bridle looks very nice. If you use it only to show it should last you a year or two. I do like all the options it comes with in this price. But it didn't stand up to schooling. However, I would purchase another one just for shows.
