Leather quality is not good
The other reviewer is absolutely correct about the leather on these bridles--I'm including a picture of mine I took after only two rides. I thought about returning mine originally (hence the pictures from early on) but ended up keeping it because I got it on sale and needed something for an upcoming show. I'm now about a year in to my purchase, have only used this bridle occasionally for showing, and am already thinking about retiring it. While the crown piece, brow band, and front of the noseband are soft and in good shape, the edges of any part that goes through a buckle have worn away, leaving "fuzzy" brownish leather edges. I have inexpensive, daily-use bridles I've owned for years that are in much better shape than this one with around 30 rides on it. Would not get this unless you're planning on using it for parts.

good from far but far from good
The leather quality is very poor. I have now purchased two of these bridles to see if the second one would be better. Parts were better parts were worse. The leather has a shiny exterior but when the leather is bent and creased to put into the buckles it immediately wrinkles and looks like the outside layer is going to crack and separate from the bottom layer. I have spent a ton of time conditioning and cleaning the leather on both bridles and they look terrible, like I have used them for years. I am so bummed. I wanted an ergonomic black bridle, cob, with a bling brow band and buckles not hooks for hardware, and this bridle is just that and it is beautiful and looks amazing on my horse, but up close it looks old and tattered. For the money I can almost buy a PSof Sweden Bridle, I am exploring other options for bridles now.

Love the design and that there is a version without a flash! My horse hates flash nosebands and it's hard to find mid range dressage bridles without them, so much appreciated this one has different options.
