Purchase: I purchased the Kincade Fancy Raised Stitched Bridle QH size from Horse Tack Co as a Christmas gift for my daughter. She has several bits she uses and this was to be used as a second work bridle so she didnt have to change bits. The bridle was on sale for $29.95 plus shipping; I wasn't expecting much.
Likes: I was pleasantly surprised as the bridle was very attractive, and fit her big joweled QH very well. I like the style, special QH fit, hardware~ nice and shiny, extra leather piece under the noseband buckle like the more expensive bridles. Leather was actually quite soft and took very well to oiling. After soaping and soaking the bridle in oil, the leather took on a very nice color and the leather was extremely soft, almost like my expensive show bridles.
Dislikes: The horse took one of the reins in his mouth for a couple minutes and the dye came off easily. Soaking in oil darken the light spot enough so it is not too noticeable any more. Before oiling the leather had little cracks in the bends of the leather, again, oiling seems to have relieved.
Quality: Decent leather which softened nicely, good stitching, good hardware. Great value.
Summary: A couple of friends at the boarding stable were shocked when I told them the price. My daughter's trainers are very picky about what goes into the show ring and upon inspecting the bridle I mentioned it was just a work bridle and she would not be using it at a show. The both commented back that the bridle was actually quite nice and may be okay for show if we could get the stitching to darken a little more. They are actually interested in obtaining some of these bridles for their many training bits also. As soon as I can find another great sale on them, I will be doing the same and replacing my older work bridles. I would definitely recommend this product!
