    Quality bridle?

    Hi there! I'm looking for a new bridle for my horse. I was wondering what brand of bridles do the fei competetors use? Not that brand matters but I was curiouse. I'm looking for a raised padded with no flash tab on the noseband unless it is completely removable. I'm having a hard time finding something with no flash. If anybody could recommend something under 400 that would last and is nice quality that would be nice!
    Thanks for reading :)

    I don't have a specific brand recommendation, but if you don't want a flash noseband, (especially with a budget of $400) you can get a double bridle that you like and just take the second bit set off for now. Just hang on to it for when you get to that level :)

    If you decide you want a flash at some point, you can get a strap and loop that attaches onto what you already have for really cheap.

    If I had $400 to spend on a bridle, I'd definitely be getting one made custom from Jerry's Harness.

    That's actually a really great Idea il start looking at doubles I never considered it. Custom would be so nice but I don't want to spend that unless I absolutely need to, so tired of bad quality bridles! Thanks for the advise!

    Honestly, just don't get anything in the less than $150 category in the catalogs, I've never gotten quality leather at that price point. Just find something with quality leather, good hooks, and you can customize it past that (fancy browband, adding flash, etc). I like the website dressageextensions.com , they can get up into the ridiculous price point, but they do specialize in dressage products and have a good selection.

    I was just going to say, Jerry's Harness. Their stuff is wonderful! You can ask for a no flash style. And, the ready made ones run a bit on the generous size.

    Bridles don't make FEI horses ;)

    I have an Anky snaffle and Prestige double, both are lovely quality leather with an excellent fit.
    There are so many options now, but I'd recommend not buying the generic saddlery brands which are Indian leather. Get a good English leather and you can't go wrong.
    Any leather gear really is a case of getting what you pay for. If you spend money and look after the leather, it will last a lifetime. You can't beat a beautiful quality, well worn leather bridle that has become lovely and soft after years of use. Compared to an Indian leather bridle that will crack and decay after years of use.

    Around $400 will get you a life time bridle.

    Haha I know it doesn't make the horse I just wonder what kind of tack they use becuse it has to be quality I would think. All these suggestions are great I'm going to look into everything thanks so much everyone!

    Jeffries bridles are gorgeous, I wont have anything else!
    I have 2 currently one of which is 25 years old and still being used in the show ring, the leather is butter soft even when new and will last a life time.
    They do several ranges all are very very good quality but get better as you go up the price brackets!
