Purchase: I bought this bridle from a small tack shop in my area for $90 on sale. It goes for $100-110 not on sale. After realizing that my Treadstone bridle's cheek pieces wouldn't be short enough for my new elevator bit, I opted to just get a new bridle. Apparently Treadstone bridles run big, because the Amigo bridle fits great!
Likes: This bridle is an amazing fit on my 15.2 QH gelding. The cheek pieces fit nicely with the elevator but they're also long enough for a normal snaffle. I love that it has a padded noseband and crown piece. The leather color is a lovely dark brown and is already suppling up after one conditioning. The noseband and other parts are just the right width, not too wide but not too narrow either. The reins are rubberized with stoppers, which I love for cross country and stadium jumping.
Dislikes: The leather was a bit stiff at first, but it is beginning to soften after using it a couple times and being conditioned. I wish this bridle was a monocrown with padding, or at least came with the option of a monocrown. Other than that, I love this bridle!
Quality: The quality is not that of an expensive bridle, but not super flimsy and cheap either. It is made very well and has a great fit for my QH, as I mentioned before, which might mean that it runs a little on the small side (I got the horse size, the cob was way too small). The stitching is nice and I like that it has nylon reinforcement on the flash attachment.
Summary: This is a great lower priced bridle that has fit my horse great and looks great too! I would say that this bridle might run a little small since it fits my QH, so if your horse has a fairly large sized head I would go for oversized. If you're looking for a reasonably priced, good looking bridle that is padded and comes with a flash, I recommend this bridle!
