Suffolk
Plain Snaffle Bridle
English Bridles



Manufacturer: Suffolk
Model: Plain Snaffle Bridle
Category: English Bridles

Purchase: I bought this bridle from Dover Saddlery, doversaddlery.com. I needed an inexpensive schooling bridle, so my show bridle wouldn't be so "used". I paid $29.99 for this bridle.

Likes: Even though I bought this bridle for an inexpensive schooling unit, it is actually a really nice bridle. The Suffolk bridles are made with supple imported leather, and the color is a nice medium brown, it matches the majority of my brown, red-brown tack. I like that this bridle has the hook/stud ends for the cheek pieces and the reins. It makes it easier for me to switch bits, clean, etc. The bridle came with matching laced reins.

Dislikes: The leather is supple now, but it took at least 5 cleaning/oiling sessions for it to be as supple as it is. The lacing on the reins are coming slightly undone. But I have had this bridle for 3 years, and that is fairly common for the original price of the bridle.

Quality: The leather is good quality for the price. The metal used all around the bridle is great quality. The leather has not stretched at all which is fairly common for the "cheaper" bridles. This bridle does not have padding, but I also own the flash bridle of this company, and it is leather lined/padded.

Summary: I have had many people ask me where I got this bridle, and my trainer thought it was a Vespucci bridle! Overall a nice schooling bridle, and I wouldn't hesitate to show in it either, providing I replaced the reins! It's funny because even though I have a few really nice bridles, I tend to pick this one out from my tack room the most. It fits my wb/tb mare perfectly , and it looks nice while doing it's job!
