Biothane tack

I bought a biothane bridle several years ago. I have used it alot! I love it!

We bought a new mare and she needed a bridle so I got online and found a place that sells them. I just got the new bridle in and it looks like I am going to like it even more..

The first bridle I bought was just a regular bridle, with a brow band. I got it in a leather colored brown. I do nothing but trailride so hubby convinced me I needed a cavison, I had always used a halter under the bridle, but didn't like the look. so I ordered a cavison (sp) and it works great.

This new bridle, well..... I got online and looked at the photos and couldn't find exactly what I had already, so I called the place and ordered something new... at least something I had never seen or heard of..

You order the headstall. it is basically like a halter/cavison combo.. it has a brow band and a nose band with a ring underneath like a halter, it snaps together at the jaw like a halter. You can put this on and use it like a halter while you trailer your horse. Then when you get ready to ride, you put the bridle piece on.. it has the bit attached and just has a one piece going up and around/over the poll at the ear. there is a little "button" that snaps everything together at the top between the ears. (I know they make "trail" bridles but I don't like the ones that the bit is attached w/snaps which you can take off/on)

I just got it in yesterday, and I had some surgery last week so I am off riding for a couple more weeks, but I can't wait to use it. I also purchases the reins that match, they are biothane also..

I love how the biothane feels, it lasts and lasts and looks so good. I just wanted to share my thoughts....

Happy trails

sorry, I'm an idiot with technology! I don't know how to post a photo.

I bought the bridle from Distance Depot. I even called twice while I was looking at the photo trying to decide on different things. THey were very nice and helpful.

I had problems with distance depot, I imagine if you call you can get good service, I didnt wanna call and there websight was confusing, the drop down boxes didnt match the product descriptions, Baisc items in the pictures became "Highly customized" when I wanted to order. All I wanted was a red 3 piece set with orange overlays, and couldnt really get that message transmitted,
A NO RETURNS NO REFUNDS, policy was a definite deal breaker for me, especially for an online mail order business.

I found Moss rock endurance, way easier to deal with, better order form, clear email communication, better prices, and not only a satisfaction guarantee, but if you buy a new horse and soemthing doesnt fit, you can send your tack back and they will refit the parts that dont fit. I ordered my stuff las week and althought they said normaly ten days I said I was going to an endurance event on the 26th and asked pretty please ? It shipped yesterday cant wait to see it.

I got this model from distance depot for my TWH and love it.
Their site does need some improvement but when I called them they were very helpful and all my items came quickly. One of tyhe great things about biothane is you just hose everything off, wipe it dry and it looks good as new.

Hubby said to order my biothane for my Christmas present. I ordered it from Taylored Tack and Amanda was wonderful to work with. It came in Monday and it is GORGEOUS. I got the Pawnee bridle/halter in purple (my favorite color!!!) with the purple maize overlay. I also got the closed reins with the overlay and it all had the Horse Shoe brand hardware that matches my saddle. Reins had the popper so my arms don't have to stretch down to let Biscuit have a drink or graze a bit.

My endurance buddy/barn manager ordered hers the same time I did and hers came in too. She ordered basically the same I did without the overlay - she also got the breast strap. We had them out at the barn yesterday and we were both extremely pleased with the quality.
