Model: Jumper Bridle
Category: English Bridles
Purchase: I spent lots of time looking for a bridle I could use for hunters, jumpers, and eventing, and finally found this one. I received it as a Christmas gift last year from Dover Saddlery for around $300. Unfortunately, Dover discontinued this item a few months ago.
Likes: I love everything about this bridle. It's beautiful, the stitching is intricate, and the quality of the leather is fantastic and very soft. The padding looks great and is comfortable for the horse. The crank noseband is ingenious, and makes adjusting the bridle so much easier. I love the stitching on the reins also. The color turns beautiful and rich when oiled.
Dislikes: I wish the reins were braided and not rubber; the rubber is a bit stiff. I also wish the noseband were thinner.
Quality: It was constructed very well, and I love elements like the stitching on the reins, crank noseband, and the unique attachment of the throat latch.
Summary: I love almost everything about this bridle. It's beautiful, fits great, the buckles are unique and of spectacular quality, and the leather is very soft and supple. If you like the thinner look of the noseband and/or braided reins, buy the Wylde hunter bridle instead of the jumper one. I absolutely love this bridle, and it looks superb in the show ring.
