Not sure on that one bridle - the pics aren't that great and I can't find that bridle in their catalog or in any past catalog...if it is Weaver, and you were considering it, I'd ask the folks to send you a pic of the brand stamped on the cheek piece...Weaver usually marks their stuff.

Ya, be very very careful with eBay. It looks like it was made to kinda mimic one kind of Weaver, and with the low price probably sell dozens. However I can tell it is cheap leather from the pictures. Weaver is stamped usually somewhere on the bridle.

The bad thing is, they may not be lying. There are many knockoff brands that make their living by being mistaken for the "name brand" they are copying. Calling it a "Weaver" bridle automatically makes people think "Weaver Leather", but anything that is truly made by Weaver Leather will have the full name and, usually, the logo as well somewhere in the ad.


Like this one. It's obviously the real thing because they have the full name and the logo. Plus, it's got just enough decoration to give it some jazz without driving the price up beyond affordable.

I'm so thankful for you guys, I would have ended up with 3 cruddy bridles right off the bat! I went ahead and dropped the seller a message and asked for pictures of the logo but I'm not holding my breath. The search continues! I found a few more I like so I'll post the linkswhen I narrow it down a little more.

Okay, this one looks like real Weaver Leather. At least it has the tags! A few more questions. Does Weaver do these sorts of things in sets? Meaning would I be able to track down matching reins, or would I just be looking for a basic rein in a matching leather color?

I don't know about WL specifically, but other companies sometimes do make them in sets and sometimes they don't. It looks like the person selling the bridle has semi-matching reins (same chestnut color with a pink concho) for added cost. You might write and ask them about pictures of the reins to see if they might be something you'd want.

I have a few sets of headstalls and reins but I prefer my Weaver one the most. It resembles the Weaver Stockman with spots. I like that there aren't any Chicago screws to worry about and it always looks good and cleans up easily. It's also less stiff right off the bat, and you can really feel and see the difference in the quality of the leather and the fittings.
