Purchase: I ordered this bridle off of Dover Saddlery and paid $219.70 for it.
Likes: This bridle is absolutely stunning, I had been wanting one for a while and when I finally got it I couldn't be more thrilled. The color of the bridle is so rich and deep that it turns heads everywhere. The padding around the crown is a great feature. Also there are leather pieces behind any metal rings on the bridle so they do not rub my horses face. The single crown forces there to be adjust ability on both sides of the bridle and it truly is a custom fit to my horse. I have mostly black tack and the Vespucci was the closest color to black I could find, but even though it isn't all black the brown is absolutely beautiful and I accents any horse' face.
Dislikes: I only have 2 complaints, one is that the leather pieces behind the rings on the cheek pieces would bleed a little bit of dye on my horses face when he would sweat, so my grey had rosey cheeks but it would wear off quickly. My only other is that I don't use it enough. I keep the bridle in my bridle bag and save it for shows.
Quality: The quality of this bridle is outstanding. When I got it it was supple and I didn't need to oil it at all. Once it broke into the shape of my horses head it fits him like a glove. The construction of this bridle is fantastic and I would recommend spending the money on one if its what your looking for because it will last forever
Summary: I would HIGHLY recommend this bridle, it is classy and a great bridle for whatever discipline you do!!
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
