Barnsby Quick Change Bridle.

Has anyone ever used one of these?
I just bought a barnsby saddle yesterday so i want to get a barnsby bridle to match it and I saw this one and I really liked the idea behind it.

Because i would have to buy if online means i wont be able to see it before i buy it. so i just want some oppinions on it before I go and buy it seeming there not exactly cheap.

When they are on the horse do they look like a normal bridle? or is it pretty obvious that its a quick change bridle?

I just looked it up on google: Barnsby Quick Change BridleŽ by Barnsby - Quality Saddles, Bridlery and Leather Goods Handmade in Walsall, England and it is similar to the Western version that I prefer. I don't see anything odd about it except for a difference in the fastener.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Love Barnsby stuff... and the quick change option is very neat, I really like it over other "quick change" systems that just use a clip.

That looks pretty cool, like a one-size fits all!

Ride more, worry less.

barnsby in general is a good quality brand and their bridles are pretty nice. the difference is that instead of having the typical discreet stud hook and loop faster (or whatever it's called...) they buckle on the outside. I personally think that makes them look like a schooling/training bridle and don't like the look of them in the show ring. they are very convenient though if you change your bits out a lot.

oh i just read the description. i guess the noseband changes out quickly too. that is pretty cool! but again, in the show ring i'm a fan of traditional and elegantly understated.
