Purchase: I bought this from The Cheshire Horse online for about $300. I needed a nice double bridle that would fit my horse and last a long time.
Likes: It is a truly amazing bridle. The leather broke in quickly and is soft yet doesn't feel like it will fall apart. It is padded everywhere, the padded crown is a great feature and the crank noseband and brow are also nicely padded (my horse appreciates that). I also like the reins it came with, they are easy to hold and the curb rein isn't too bulky like on the double I used to use. It has withstood everyday use well. The double raised nose and brow are beautiful and offset my horse's head nicely.
Dislikes: The leather on the crown piece is often a little dry, even though I clean, oil and condition the bridle after each use, however I am in a hot, dry climate with blasting sun, so that may be the cause. Other than that, it is superb.
Quality: The stitching is perfect, not one loose or uneven stitch to be found. The bridle is well put together and has a nice fit. The leather is nice, quality leather (other than the dryness on the crown). Nothing has stretched or broken, and it still looks new. The hardware is polished stainless steel.
Summary: A really nice bridle that offers comfort for your horse and is exceptional looking. If you are willing to pay the price, a remarkable bridle for the competitive dressage rider.
