Category: English Bridles
Purchase: I acquired this at State Line Tack for $44.99. I needed a bridle for the new horse I was buying, and this was certainly much cheaper than many other bridles carried in high end tack stores. I wanted something simple, cheap and long lasting, of which this seemed to be a likely candidate.
Likes: It is a nice, rich red color with beautiful off white stitching. It looks nice on any horse, whether they be chestnut, bay or black(the three I tried it on).
Dislikes: The most obvious thing about it is how cheap the leather is. The chin strap seems as if it might snap at any second when I tighten it, and one day when my horse took off and I was pulling on her to stop, I was actually afraid that the reins might break. It took my reins about two months to break in(with everyday use), even with constant oilings/flexing. The color, as beautiful as it is, does not match with any other saddles/breastplates on the market, except for other Kincade tack.
Quality: It is a plain raised snaffle bridle with hook and loop closers in a rich deep red with white stiching. It is constructed of cheap leather, that should cost more about $20 instead of $45.
Summary: If you're looking for a bridle you'll use with your calm, placid horse you ride a couple days a week, then it's a perfect bridle. Anything else, don't get it.
Usefulness Rating: 3.125 out of 5.
