It's very very much a dressage bridle! If you plan on doing any hunter/jumper type shows in the future and don't wnat to buy a second bridle I would get one that is more traditional: solid Havana or Oakbark. If you don't mind getting a second bridle and you like this one? Get it!

As mentioned, I do not mind buying two bridles :)

I think it is a nice bridle :) I ride in black tack, so I have done many a Jumper show in black and I have even done many a Hunter Schooling show in Black tack as well.

Heck, I am now at a very large, Primarily Hunter/Jumper barn, and I am the only one who rides in black tack. LOL.

I have placed well, in our shows and comps in black tack.

To be perfectly honest, all my bridles are "Dressage"/Eventing bridles, because I have a hard time finding Jumping Bridles in black.

But mine aren't double colored like yours. Just strait black.

The only difference is that Dressage Bridles are thicker padded - wider I mean. And then the nosebands get different as well, some dressage bridles you find Crank Nosebands *I dislike these very much* but it is a personal preference.

Anyways, I use Dressage Bridles all the time because they are black. Mine look just like this bridle, niltch the flash. I do not use Flash's at all.

So if I can use "dresage" bridles just fine while Eventing and doing Jumper shows and lessons and clinics and all that whoo haw, then so can you :)

Yeah if you are doing jumpers and eventing and very small schooling hunter shows then it won't matter (although it could become a tie breaker in a hunter show situation). I do jumpers in this:

Noseband is higher up, I had to punch hole and I just slapped that on for the picture. Brown with lilac padding :P

I got a very simmilar padded bridle for $30 on ebay. I really like that one. I don't think the judges at my schooling shows mind the bridle, but I perfer one color for h/j shows. I have that type of bridle and a brown bridle for my mare. The only think you need to do is keep the padding clean, it shows all dirt. Mine has a flash attachment but I think I lost it, because I don't use it at all.

MIE- what kind of saddle do you have? I don't know I've seen a jumping saddle in black before. I prefer black on my paint mare, I don't like brown because unless it the same color as her spots it just doesn't look right to me.

There are a ton of black jumping saddles, I know in Europe because hunters are not really big/the same thing as US hunters that black is actually more popular in some countries. My sister is in Germany and they are all surprised by her dark brown tack xD Cobra saddles are really popular there.

Only picture I can find online of one of them.

I mean in the US. I've never seen a really good brand in black. I've seen a few cheep-o saddle kits with A/P saddles but never a light weight C/C.

I really do like Black saddles, and also brown lol.
Thank you MI and everyone else !
I will keep this in mind, the bridle is coming here on Sunday !
So I will throw it on without a bit to show it off, ;) (indigo needs his teeth floated and the wolf teeth pulled)

I do like black tack also, but brown I also like,depending on what kind
I don't plan on doing anything big directed at show as of right now, just some smaller shows :)
