    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality, but it runs really small My horse is not exceptionally large. He's an average size quarter horse with an average size head. But this bridle was way to small. Even on the lowest holes, it didn't come close to meeting the rings of the D-ring snaffle I ride him in. For this reason, I returned the bridle.Otherwise, the quality was excellent. For a basic working bridle, you can't beat this one for the price. However, I ordered the buckle end and I think the leather is too thick for that. The fastening felt kind of heavy and clunky with the buckle there. The tie end may be a better option.I have another bridle that has buckle ends, but is made from thinner leather leather, and I don't get the same feeling of clunkiness with that one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Say good bye to Chicago screws High quality, good looking bridle that allows for changing of a bit with ease! No mo worry about losing a Chicago screw or wrestling with leather knots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A solid well made trail bridle No frills, no bling, just a practical headstall that looks to last as long as I take care of it. A solid value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First impressions I had always used Weaver headstalls and thought they were good. Everything changed when I got this bridle! It really is as soft as everyone says! You can tell it is very well oiled and it does have a slight worn in look most likely from the oiling so it might not be good for high level showing but definitely for schooling, trails, and low shows. Compared to Weaver headstalls, it has an incredibly nice heavy weight to it and is very sturdy and has a great thickness just right. YOU NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE! You will regret not buying it sooner I guarantee you that. The price is unbeatable for the quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice - but runs SMALL tho!! I bought this for my Gelding - he is a Haflinger and it JUST fits him in the last holes for a snaffle bit. He has a normal sized horse head. Looks really nice with the brass - matches all my brass on my saddle too. The leather is a nice thickness and it should last a long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Bridle! I received this bridle as a birthday present, and although I haven't had the chance to use it yet, I love it so far! Nice leather, it isn't stiff to start but I'm sure it will break in very well. And I love the brass buckles!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Headstall Love this headstall. I purchased this style because I needed it for a young horse that I am riding. The leather is nice and supple and easy to set up and adjust. I have used the one eared version of this headstall for several years now and still love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannot say enough good things I bought this three years ago, used it hundreds of times. I am in love. Great for green horses, wipe it down and it looks simple yet elegant showing. I adore this bridle! It looks great on any horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very nice quality this Headstall was very nice for the price and fit my mustang mare perfectly. I also bought the reins as well.. its a nice looking set and very soft. The picture posted on the white horse does not do this justice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just a smidge small I bought this bridle about a month ago for a working/training bridle. I LOVE the buttery soft but strong leather. The quality brass hardware makes it easy to change bits and size for different horses.My only complaint is the size. Most of my training horses have smallish heads, so the bridle is very useful, but it just barely fits my large-ish headed QH.
    Date published: 2015-04-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits a full range of head sizes I bought this bridle because of the quick change feature of the buckles for a bit. I am using it on my Quarter Pony with a tiny baby doll head and it worked out fine. The leather is soft and supple, ready to go right out of the box! I love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buckles Make Bit Changes Fast! Not only does this headstall have the awesome leather I have come to expect from Rockin' SP, the buckle feature makes changing bits almost instant! After over two years of use, I have had no trouble out of any of the buckles. Great product!
    Date published: 2015-04-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality! I actually won this bridle and I am absolutely thrilled with it. Great quality and supple, soft leather. Would definitely recommend!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sturdy, but bulky This is a sturdy, bulky, heavy bridle; I'm getting used to it, but I probably would not buy a harness leather bridle again. I think I prefer something lighter.
    Date published: 2014-10-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple beauty I am really glad I found this headstall! It is very high quality leather for the price and isn't blingy like a lot of headstalls out there are right now. It was clean and supple right out of the bag. I wish Smartpak made more western tack!
    Date published: 2014-10-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I expected This headstall came ready to use right out of the box. It is pre-oiled & therefore, very supple and seems to be very comfortable for my mare to wear. It is just what I expected - no less - thank you SmartPak for providing such great quality at an affordable price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Happy! This headstall is perfect! Adjustable to fit my mr. Big head! Paired with my own bit and the matching barrel reins, I'm very pleased with them. Nice quality leather, already broken in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice headstall! Love this headstall! High quality material and durable hardware. Quick and easy to change bit because of the buckles. I am so pleased with this product that I am going to buy another one just like it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Easy to Use Love this headstall. Easy to change out bits and the leather is soft and pliable so no rubbing on my horse's head.
    Date published: 2014-04-24
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it I bought this headstall as a birthday present for my friend. Her horse had DESTROYED her previous headstall, so I wanted to get her a higher quality headstall. This one did not disappoint. It looks fabulous on her gelding. My only complaint is that the buckles look more like a shiny plastic than solid brass.
    Date published: 2013-11-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bridle for the money I'm very impressed with the quality of the leather; supple, good workmanship and good looking. It is not generously sized and just fit my QH on the hole closest to the bit. Also, the browband just fit, wouldn't mind a little more room. Excellent quality and happy with it, but would not fit a larger horse.
    Date published: 2013-07-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from not for a large horse I originally reviewed this headstall with my bitless nose band attached and it works great, but when I went to change to a bit I realized this headstall even on the longest setting is too short for my quarter horse/draft cross, so unfortunately I won't be able to use with a bit like I wanted. There weren't sizes available so no choice for a bigger size. It's nice and soft but maybe you should choose another headstall if your horse has a large head.
    Date published: 2013-05-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super soft and strong I bought this headstall for a quarter horse/draft cross. It fits her perfectly. It comes oiled and ready to use. I've been disappointed in the past by bridles claiming to be soft and supple, but this one is exactly that. It's heavy duty. And a good price. Love the buckle ends. I switch from a bit to a side pull attachment and this is so much easier than chicago screws.Love this headstall!!!
