Kavalkade Mia Dressage Bridle is rated
Rated 4 out of
Have not had this bridle very long (Christmas Gift), so I cannot speak for durability. However, it is very cute! Was a tad stiff out of the box, yet with some neatsfoot and then a bit of passier in some other areas it's already supple and soft!
I won't give it 5 stars, as there are a few details that rob that honor from it. Maybe it's simply the bridle I received, but the slots in the leather for the reins and bits "hook" connector is just short enough to make it quite difficult to attach. Compared it to my older dressage bridle, the slots are about a pinky's depth shorter, apparently that's all it takes to be a pain. Also, there are some parts where the leather edges aren't as smooth as I'd like. The finish is a little crackled already, you'd never know though and it's likely to soften with more wear and conditioner.
These points aside, this bridle is ADORABLE. The stones are set in pretty well and don't budge at all. The noseband compliments my small warmblood's head perfectly as he has a more delicate muzzle. This does run true to size, as the horse size is almost a tad big for him which is normal; he's right between a cob and a horse size for 99% of tack. Final note, for the price I don't think it can be beat. Small differences are apparent when you deal with it personally compared to top dollar bridles. From a distance you'd never know though! Overall, I am excited to ride in this bridle in the coming eventing season!

Nice bridle at reasonable price
Quality leather and very attractive. Have gotten many comments on it already. It wasn't too expensive either compared to how it looks.
