Synthetic Headstall and Reins
Western Bridles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Weaver
Model: Synthetic Headstall and Reins
Category: Western Bridles

Purchase: Purchased at Big R. for around $19 for the headstall and $15 for the reins.

Likes: What I love about this particular headstall and reins is they are maintenance free! The rubber like material looks like leather, without the upkeep of it. There's no need to worry about mold either. I use this set for trail riding and my daughter uses it for 4-H shows. If it does get dirty or in my case muddy, from a trail ride, after 2 days of rain, you just simply hose it off or wipe it with a damp cloth. Because of the material, it's very lightweight. I also like the fact both the headstall and reins can be easily fitted to any size of horse or pony (except the browband). The material cuts easily without having to worry about the ends. I used scissors to cut the length of my reins.

Dislikes: I don't have any complaints myself, so I had to barrow my daughter's. She doesn't like the reins because her hands sweat, making the reins too slick to grasp. The reins themselves don't cause sweaty hands, but preteen hormones do. If you don't have sweaty palms, it will be difficult to come up with a complaint.

Quality: This set can be purchased in black or brown. I've had my black set for almost a year. The hardware hasn't rusted or chipped. The reins have chicago screws, which have also held up. With no maintenance, it makes the quality even better, in my opinion. Both the headstall and reins seem very sturdy.

Summary: If you'd rather spend more time riding than cleaning and oiling tack, this headstall and reins are the way to go. If you need to clean it, just hose it off or wipe with a damp cloth. Like many of the foam type saddle pads, when the horse sweats, this rubber like material becomes lubricated, resulting in no rubs marks on your horse. With the look of leather, it's suitable enough for 4-H and open shows. Because of it's lightweight and maintenance free, it's also great for trail riding.
