I was the one who mentioned ovation bridles. I like them and think they're great. You can find a better deal then that link. I got a padded one for like $110 from and eBay store.
I typically don't love perri's. Now I don't have experience with this bridle so take this however.. But I don't fine perri stuff to be particularly quality. Kind if plasticky leather and kind of stiff. That's my opinion though. Posted via Mobile Device
Ohh crap. I was catching up on the rules of my eq. Class in 2 weeks and only leather reins, I have lots but to match my bridle is the tricky part. I found a perfect match and stopped looking, they're the buckels...... Guess I should continue my search. Thanks for this post, I would have looked dumb with backwards reins or look like schooling tack ( these were over $100??? )
Good to know I could help someone!! Yeah I had NO clue about the buckles out not being good for the hunter ring until my trainer saw mine the night before the show and said something to me about it. I think she saw them in our lessons and assumed that was just my schooling bridle, but no it was my show bridle haha!
