They were super helpful at Tackzone and knew what they were talking about when it came to Dressage Bridles. They shipped my order the same day, and my shipping was free. I highly recommend them to everyone. I bought the English Calfskin Leather bridle. I don't have any experience with the Italian leather. This English Calfskin bridle is beautiful. Super smooth leather, beautiful stitching, gorgeous buckles and amazing price. What helped me make the purchase was the beautiful photos of the bridles. This was my first Bobby's Bridle and definitely not my last.
