The US Made one ear is pretty cheap all around, the one in your last posting.

Honestly, if it was me, I would go for a Circle Y headstall or TexTan, the Weaver ones don't seem to be as good a leather, stay far stiffer and aggravating no matter how much they are used.

And I have some questions about the leather they are using and cutting, as it doesn't seem to lay right.

I've been really disappointed with the one or two I have gotten over the years, but extremely satisfied with the ones I suggested.

And Hermann Oak Leather is another one, think that is name...but I like that bridle leather much better than Weaver.

Horses make me a better person.

I've bought most of my tack from weaver. I've never been disapointed with it. I have been disapointed with bridles that werent from Weaver-like one that came all the way from Germany.
I just bought a curb strap from Weaver and was pleased with the softness of the leather.

My weaver brand bridles take a lot of abuse and stand up well over the years. Love the leather and it lasts. It's not the same softness as say, my Cowperson Tack, but I pay a lot more for it! I have reinsman bridles too and I do love reinsman reins.
