Biothane Bridles?

I was looking at bridles and someone told me of the biothane bridles. I was looking at different websites and found one that I like here: http://store.runningbear.com/catalog...&cat=8&scat=49

That's the bridle that I'm thinking of getting; I'm just not sure what color. I was wondering if anyone knew the quality of these bridles and if they are comfortable for the horse. Thanks guys!

Edit:: I like this one too: http://store.runningbear.com/catalog...&cat=8&scat=51

I've heard that they are really good for trail riding, but I've never used one - or seen one in person for that matter....

They look nice but parts look thin and flimsy, I have no idea how durable/stretchable/breakable biothane is but it looks very fancy!

I use a biothane crossover bitless bridle. Its great! so easy to clean, and doesnt rub my boy or anything.
.....and believe me if it doesnt rub him that's pretty amazing.......he can't have a halter on for more than a day or it rubs hard out :roll:

Yer they are great. Biothane is very strong, and it also doesnt wear out, or go brittle from the sun, rain ect. And they are so easy to keep clean. Mine is a padded hanoverian and it has never rubbed or caused discomfort with Chloe. I do all my training in it, the only time I put leather on clo is to compete. Ill be getting Nudgie his own biothane bridle soon too.

Do they have a higher/lower/same tensile strength as leather? I'd be worry about breaking point - I like leather because it breaks if the horse panics about something - I.e. If the horse get the reins stuck around its legs if you've fallen off, the leather will break so the horse doesn't fight itself to death.
I've heard horror stories about nylon bridles (they don't break easily), so I'd check how comparable these biothane bridles are to leather - that is if it isn't already mentioned...
