Category: English Bridles
Purchase: I ordered this bridle online for a hefty price of $200. It was greatly reduced, because I bought it "used" however it was still tied together and had the original tags.
Likes: I like the color and the beauty of the bridle. It is gorgeous and the hardware is sturdy. All of the buckles have the name Barnsby on them, and I quite like how easy they are to work with.
Dislikes: Everything else! This bridle is terrible, it tore the keepers right away as I attached the reins to my bit. It cracked right away even after a thorough night of oil and conditioner.
Quality: I could make a bridle from toilet paper stronger than this hunk of cheap "leather." I've had supposedly cheap India made bridles way better than this England made bridle. I barely call the material leather, it feels like cheap plastic to touch.
Summary: This bridle was a huge waste of time and money. Barnsby has really gone down the hole with their workmanship. I will NEVER buy a piece from them again!
Usefulness Rating: 3 out of 5.
