Good bridle, bad dye job
I got this bridle and have used it twice so far, and love it. I have just transferred my arab cross to bitless a couple months ago, and was looking for a good bridle. It was a little big for his head, but a leather hole punch did the job and it fits like a charm. The only reason I am only giving this a four out of five is because when you bend the leather you can see right through the dye job. The dark brown that I ordered is more of the normal red/brown color. Thankfully this color matches my saddle better, because I doubt it will stay dark brown for more than a few cleanings.

Really nice, but HUGE! NOT one size fits all.
It's a beautiful and quality product, but it needs to come in a smaller size. One size fits all..... all HUGE horse heads. It can only get so small, and then you start to have all these extra long bulky straps to deal with. And even at the smallest settings, it was still too huge for my standard quarter horse's head. She doesn't even have a small head, either!

Excellent concept. Takes practice.
I bought this for an 18 y.o. mare who has dental anomalies involving her upper and lower incisors and is very reluctant to take a bit. It takes time to find the correct fit for any bitless bridle so stay in a fenced area for a while! She could shake this bitless bridle off unintentionally until I got to a comfortable snug fit. I know she is happier when I tack her up. With combined aids we are now going the same as on a snaffle bit when in a ring. Just started short trail rides. Who knows how much a bit contributes to control when situations arise? I think staying on and a good seat is most of it. I'll let you know.
