They look pretty nicely made. It seems so simple to me, being an english rider, I feel like it needs a cheek strap at least or maybe a noseband! ;) I feel like it could just pop right off if the horse stretched down to itch it's front legs, but I guess that's how some western bridles are
I don't know, I'd be worried about security and long term wear. How heavy duty is that velcro, will it stick if I get into a fight with a horse...and how many times can you undo it before it starts to get mushy and un-sticky?
