Nice bridle?

Does this look like a nice bridle?

I've been looking for a reasonable figure 8 and thought this one looked nice. Can anyone speak from experience? Does anyone know if this is a reliable brand?

I have a few HDR bridles. They're ok, although I think their brides are nicer then their saddles. Their oakbark is pretty red, even after you oil it. The leather is very soft though. Personally I like Ovation's bridles much better. They're around the same price range, possibly a little more, but I think it's a slightly nicer quality.

Thanks! I'll look at ovation ones! The only problem is Im not sure if they have an oakbark colored one. It seems like everything is in that Havana color these days but my tack color is oakbark

Hm, I was almost positive that they do but after a quick search it looks like most of what they have is "hazlenut" which says darkens to a nice oakbark... but i'm thinking is a little darker then that... I do believe the ovation bridles i've seen are closer to a havana. The HDR oakbark is very very red! Even with a lot of oil, the leather turns a dark reddish brown and the edges remain pretty red. One reason I didn't like them.

Hmm okay I'll keep that in mind. Are they padded nicely though? And is the crown one peice?
