Model: Figure 8 Bridle (View all Figure 8 Bridle reviews)

Category: English Bridles

Purchase: Paid over $200 from Long Melford Saddlery in the UK to match my Amerigo saddle.

Likes: Beautiful dark havana color, the single headpiece makes this bridle very comfortable and easy to adjust.

Dislikes: Leather is not the quality I expected from Amerigo. Even after repeated oilings/conditionings, the leather remains somewhat dry. The single headpiece makes it impossible to change to a different noseband if I so wished. Hard to get the figure 8 noseband tight enough to really work correctly, as the leather on it isn't very sturdy.

Quality: Beware, these bridles run large. I got a full size for my 16 hand TB, who usually wears a full, and it was a good bit too big for him. Leather quality was substandard. Stitching appears to be tight and even however and I have not had a problem with it in the two years I have had the bridle.

Summary: If you order the correct size, it is a fairly nice bridle, at least to look at, however there are better bridles out there that cost less than this one. Don't save up your pennies for this one, it's not worth it.
