Weaver
Nylon Headstall, reins, curbstrap, and breast collar
Western Bridles



Manufacturer: Weaver
Model: Nylon Headstall, reins, curbstrap, and breast collar
Category: Western Bridles

Purchase: I bought these at Fleet farm. The reins were about $25, the headstall cost about the same; the breastplate was around $40 and the curb strap was about $12. I wanted a matching set for my paint mare for trail rides and this was the perfect blue color.

Likes: They come in a variety of colors, so you can get anything you want to match just about any saddle pad you can find. They are high quality and durable, and the hardware doesn't rust or lose color.

Dislikes: Just a bit about my mare before I tell you about the tack. I have a 14 year old, 15.1 hand paint mare. She is just over 1000 pounds and is pleasure bred. She is not super bulky but not ultra refined, either---she is very much a pleasure type horse. She wears a average size halter. Headstall: The headstall was HUGE. I had to cut off 6 inches of material on either cheekpiece and punch extra holes to fit it to her head. The throatlatch just barely fit, and is on the biggest hole. Chinstrap: Not even worth using. There is too much chain and I would have to take off at least 2 inches to make it fit her jaw. Good thing I ride in a snaffle bit and don't need one. Reins: Nice, and an acceptable length. Ideally, they should either be one single rein or buckle reins, since most people who would be riding in synthetic tack are going to be those trail riding or doing gymkhana and they don't want to drop their reins. Breastcollar: Way too tight! I punched extra holes at the very end of the nylon and it just barely fits her when standing. I can't use it for riding because it chafes her shoulders.

Quality: These are high quality items that were well dyed and use very nice hardware. They do not fit my paint mare, and she is a very typically sized mare.

Summary: I would only recommend buying these if you have a small horse. You can cut the extra nylon off the bridle and take some links out of the chinstrap and you'll be okay. I'd forget about the breast collar for a bigger horse. My mare isn't that big and I can't ride her in it. The reins are a good length if you don't mind riding with split reins.
