Purchase: After doing extensive research for a nice snaffle bridle I settled on the Kieffer Maja II. I wanted one with a very wide noseband, a crank with a flash, and a padded crown. I also knew I wanted something fairly nice but didn't want to invest in a Schumacher. I settled on the Kieffer because the quality is very high but it is still affordable. I bought the bridle new through Dressage Extensions for $220 with tax and shipping.
Likes: The bridle is very nicely made. It has generous padding under the crank noseband. The crownpiece is beautiful, it even features slight cut-outs for the ears. The leather quality is very high and the browband is much prettier in person than it seems online. I was initially going to replace it but have now decided to use it. I also like that it's a crank noseband with a flash, which was much harder to find than I had anticipated.
Dislikes: The bridle is significantly larger than I expected. My horse has a large head and yet everything except the noseband is too big on her. If your horse has a refined head definitely go for the cob size. Also, the reins aren't very nice, but I had my own leather ones I wanted to use anyways so I'm just selling them.
Quality: Black leather bridle with white stitching. There is padding under the noseband and crownpiece. Brass buckles. Cotton web reins with leather stops. Gold clincher browband.
Summary: I really like the bridle and am going to keep it. I wouldn't necessarily buy another one because the sizing is a little tough, but I think the quality is great for the price.
