Full QH Fibelr glass / Composite blend light weight tree. I wouldn't touch that with a 10' pole. Laser imprinted leather. The reason leather is stamped is to compress the fibers which adds strength. I'd probably pass on their tack as well. I have a nice alpaca trimmed western bridle that's likely 30 yrs old and it will easily fetch $150. It is double ply and of good tannage. I was given a split ear that was purchased in 1966. The woman had the original bill of sale from Kenway's of Calgary, Alberta. That makes it 48 yrs. Old. It too is lined with leather and is in very good condition. Exc quality hardware that doesn't rust. She paid $35 back then. Min. Wage she said was $1.10 hr, so it was fairly pricey but break it down and it's about 75 cents a yr.

I actually am considering trying one of their saddle blankets lined with felt-IF I can get it cheap via eBay auction. They have them priced at $469, BIN, but do have a couple for auction without reserve.

I did not like the look of their headstalls at all. I thought they looked cheap and I too would question the quality…but then I am sort of a leather snob.

I personally hate all the bling stuff. Tucker has some awesome bridles and breast collars under $100 and I have never had quality problems with their products.

Frank, why not buy a tan pure wool felt pad, 1" and toss a nice blanket over it. As the horse sweats the felt will form to it's back. Cost is about $50. There are numerous felt pads advertised that have so many rows of stitching of what looks like nylon fishing line, that the felt can't follow the contours.

Mainly because I already have a 5 star, which I love……and that is exactly what I do every time I ride. However, sometimes just to go for a quick ride, it would be easier to just throw on ONE thing. It can be a pain to get the blanket perfect () over the pad…..it must cover to look good, you know. Plus, with shoulder surgery in a couple days…I pretty much HAVE to simplify for a while.
