Purchase: I purchased this product in person at the jeffers superstore in dothan, AL in 2009. It cost $55 + tax
Likes: The padding on the bridle is really soft. It provides a lot of comfort for my horse. Everything works and fits properly and it seems to be well crafted. The stitching, buckles, and everything are holding up well to over 2 years of nearly daily use. With regular conditioning the leather breaks in well and gets really soft and supple. The rubber reins are nice. Ample grip even when wet which is important when riding cross country or in the rain.
Dislikes: The visible parts of the bridle (when worn by the horse) are painted black so over time in certain spots wear off though you can't tell unless you are looking for it. The flash is quite large, so I had to punch multiple holes in it so it would fit. My friend bought the same bridle but in brown. She does not take very good care of her things and somehow managed to break off the buckle to her throatlatch. Mine is still holding strong though. The reins can be a bit chunky for smaller hands, or those wanting a more sensitive feel.
Quality: The leather is of medium quality but supples significantly with use and regular care. The stitching is well done and sturdy. It has stood up to over 2 years of nearly daily use with minimal wear.
Summary: Overall this is an excellent eventing or schooling bridle compatible with most horses provided you have a leather punch for the flash. It is well crafted and durable. Well worth the $55 - you will get many years out of this bridle
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
