Looking for an English bridle with clips

So I'm looking for a new bridle, specificaly an english bridle where the bit attached via clips instead of the traditional way of looped leather. I've only found the bridle style in one place, here: Hadfield Bridleworks Hadfield Jumper Bridle w/ Flash and Clips - Bridles & Bits from Equus Now!

However I would very much like to NOT spead $355.95

If this specific style called something and I'm searching by the wrong terms? Or do you know where I could buy a similar bridle online or who makes this style?

Thanks in advance!

You could always buy the clips yourself and put them on :) Most tack shops sell those little clips, I've never put them on a bridle but I have put them on reins to change between laced & rubber reins quickly. They're very handy.

you can get cheek pieces that allow you to clip the bit on instead of getting a whole new bridle.

And I agree with the above post, looks like you'll have to import.

Just buy your own clips and buckle the cheek piece to the clip instead fo the bit. We've done it to a few PVC bridles because they are so stiff to undo.

sstack.com has some, but they do not include a caveson.
Schneider Saddlery Bridles

You can put your own clips on a regular bridle, though that does extend the length of the cheek pieces.

PM me I can make you one.

I'm not a fan of having clips on the reins as I find the noise distracting and I also don't think they are very safe as many people use normal trigger clips and not specifically made bridle clips.

Tory Leather makes one in multiple colors. I use mine all the time and I got a caveson made to match it. You can't tell that it's just a plain training headstall when I ad the extra stuff to it to make it show-able. Although I wouldn't show in it other than local shows and things if that's why you wanted one. I have this in a regular horse size and it's actually big enough for a warmblood/X-large head. As my QH has a large head and it's almost to the smallest notches for him because the snaps add length to the bridle. Tory Arabian Training Headstall - Statelinetack.com
