Purchase: I bought this bridle from Maryland Tack and paid around 80 dollars for it. I bought the green rubber reins that matched the bridle at a later date (when I got enough money :p) for about 40 dollars.
Likes: I like everything about this bridle. When I first saw it I was drawn to it because I had been looking for a nice bridle with hunter green padding, so I ordered one because they were holding the one that had on hand for somebody else. When I went to pick it up I realized just how nice this bridle was! The leather was soft and supple and the padding was fairly soft (my horse doesn't need the padding, I just like bridles with it) and the hunter green was a REALLY nice contrast underneath of the oakbark leather. I also liked that it matched my pessoa saddle perfectly! The reins were also very supple and the rubber was very soft and with the green padding and green rubber the bridle really looks nice on my bay (and it fits his quarter horse head)
Dislikes: The only thing I wish this bridle would have had was an attached flash, it would be very helpful when I go cross country. I did, however, find a Tory leather flash and converter at Dover. This matched the bridle perfectly and was actually a flash attachment, not a drop noseband. Other than a missing flash it's perfect.
Quality: The construction is beautiful. None of the stitching is breaking or loose and I have been using this bridle 4-6 times a week every week. The padding is securely fastened and all of the buckles for the bit and reins are BUCKLES! Not those little metal hooks that make it impossible to disassemble your bridle for a thorough cleaning. This is the easiest bridle to change bits and reins on ever!
Summary: This bridle is well worth the money! I would expect this quality from a 200-250 dollar bridle. Tory really outdid themselves with this one. I don't know if it's made it different colors, but if you like hunter green and padded bridles this one is for you!!!
Author: This bridle rocks my socks!!!
