Stubben bridles anyone?

So I've been looking around for a snaffle bridle (for schooling and showing) latley and happened to stumble upon the brand Stübben. I've never heard of them before so I was quite intrigued. After taking a look at their website I have to say they make some finnnneee lookin leather goods. Plus their prices aren't to bad either.They're two bridles in paticular I like:

Stubben 1800 Bridle

Stubben 3000 Bridle

So what do you guys think of Stübben?

You've never heard of Stubben? Interesting, since anyone who rides English usually knows about them.

They've been considered a quality saddle/leather maker for many years. They started out in Germany, and now most of their tack is made in Switzerland.

Ain't that the truth!

After visiting the Stubben NA website, I feel like I need a cigarette and a cold shower!

I don't hug and nuzzle my Stubben saddle. Much.

Thanks for the info. And nope I've never heard of them before. I've never owned my own horse so I've never had to buy tack. (Plus I've only been riding English for two years now) I've been schooling in the same old kieffer saddle and bridle since I started. I'm going to college next year and I have to buy my own tack. So that's why I was asking.

Don't worry, we aren't getting at you because you haven't heard of Stubben, it's just that we love Stubben, says the girl who has two, or was it three of them, I'd love a bridle.

However, if you are riding in Kieffer tack then you are used to some nice stuff anyway.

Oh I wasn't upset! Yeah the Kieffer tack is nice but I'm ready to try something new. I think I'm going to be going with Stübben. Hopefully I can find a tack store nearby that sells their stuff so I can see it in person.

Stubben is waaay nicer than keiffer in leather quality alone. Isabelle werth has gorgeous bridle as well, very well designed for refined heads.
BR is lesser known but their bridles are amazing. My friends tack shop ordered 8, sold 3 before they were priced and hung up and now has only 2 left in about 10 days. They run around $300 and are drop dead gorgeous and very well made.

Happy bridle shopping!

There are plenty of used Stubbens out there for sale so unless you just absolutely, positively must have new, you can find them for reasonable prices.

I bought my saddle used, and it's probably the nicest piece of tack I've ever owned.

If you're not sure where to find a dealer, contact Stubben NA. They'll give you a list of sellers in your area.
