Hadfields
Raised Fancy Stitched Bridle & Reins
English Bridles



Manufacturer: Hadfields
Model: Raised Fancy Stitched Bridle & Reins
Category: English Bridles

Purchase: I purchased this bridle and reins online at Premier Tack Outlet. The C.M. Hadfield's bridles and reins are one of the most expensive on the market, so I was pleased to find a new one at a discount price. I had seen many riders using them on the A circuit and wanted to try one.

Likes: The stitching is beautiful, the bridle has double leather at all the bit ends, a buckle cover on the noseband for comfort. The leather breaks in immediately and becomes absolutely butter soft. The more the bridle is used, the nicer it gets. It's a much softer leather than some brands like Edgewood, Pessoa, Jaguar etc...

Dislikes: The browbands seem to run slightly small on the Hadfields bridles. My full size bridle measures 14.5", most full size bridles have browbands that measure at least 15". I have a TB, so the browband size still worked fine for me. Everything else is perfect on this bridle.

Quality: The construction of the bridle is one of the nicest I've ever seen. Super tight stitching and the finest leathers are used. It just gets nicer the more I use it and it appears that it will last for many years.

Summary: I love this Hadfields bridle and would definitely purchase another and more of their products. They are very expensive, but definitely worth the price.
