Category: English Bridles
Purchase: I purchased this bridle from Triangle Horse Sports for $119. I needed a show bridle for some local level showing as well as a few AQHA classes.
Likes: I like the durability of the bridle. I have had it going on 5 years and I am extremely busy and do not usually have the time to clean my tack as I should. This bridle remains show ready despite being used 3 to 5 days a week for schooling and I can go right into the show ring with it. The stitching and color have held up very well.
Dislikes: The only negative I have to say is that in 5 years of very consistent use, one of the braided loops in the reins is finally getting loose. Mind you this is the first loop that I actually rub against or touch while riding. So this poor loop had endured a lot of use.
Quality: The bridle is a little stiffer than the upper level competition but regular conditioning and it will soften nicely. The color and stitching have both remained intact despite a large amount of use.
Summary: Excellent bridle for the price. It is more durable than you upper level bridles but you sacrifice with just a hint of stiffer leather. This bridle shows well in the ring and handles the workload of a schooling bridle just as well.
Usefulness Rating: 2.78947 out of 5.
