Which Bridle?


I was wondering which of these bridles would be better to get? Has anyone got one of them and disliked any thing about it?

I have the Suffolk one...I got it years ago just to be a schooling bridle. It's held up quite nicely and I would recommend it. I cleaned/oiled it after every 4-5 rides and it still looks great.

I too have the suffolk bridle! Although the one I bought came with a flash, and haven't found it since. I suggest suffolk because it has held up :)

Thanks! I was kind of leaning towards getting the Suffolk bridle. Now I'll definitely get it.

I have the Suffolk dressage bridle for schooling, and I do agree that it does have to be conditioned/oiled much more frequently than higher quality leathers.
The cheek pieces started to crack on the inside, and they were very cardboard like, but that's the bridles only flaw. Everywhere else is fine.

It serves it's purpose, and I've had it for about two years now..
It's a pretty good bridle, and I think you'll be getting a fair enough deal with it.

However, one of the schooling horses at the H/J barn I train at, has a Camelot, and it's appeared to oil up and soften far better than my Suffolk has. But it's also older and more used..

I honestly think, with either one, you'll be happy with them both.
