I actually bought that same bridle and the quality is amazing for the price! It is not cheap leather by any means! If you contact him he will do some customizations as well, I had mine made to be mono-crown.



There is actually quite a long thread on HGS about these products, PM me if you want the link since It's against horse-forums policy to post links to there

ETA-I absolutely love the reins too!

this is with the high quality english, someone on HGS said the upgrade to the english leather be $125(not extra just total) and that this leather was quality enough not to need the upgrade. I also have a girth and leather from Sudhir(royal) that I love! I'm actually cleaning the girth as I type lol. I'll PM you the link

Couldn't stop, but

SB, do you have any reference it's true indeed?

Googled it out of curiosity. Apparently that is a primitive way of doing it but well...yeah. People also seemed to prefer certain sources of urine over others.
