I have a couple of flash bridles, horse sized. One was used only for showing so is nearly brand new..the other was used for schooling so is a slightly darker color just due to more cleaning..both are the same bridle. The pic indicated is the show bridle version; I can't locate the pic I had of the schooling bridle but both are in excellent condition. $130 for the schooling bridle; $160 for the show version. Bridle retails at $199.99 (Dover Saddlery Showmark Padded Flash).

The bridles have the recessed crown; the noseband goes over the top of the poll and fits into a recessed channel so it doesn't lay directly against the horse's poll. I've had many people, judges and even an FEI dressage rider who have all complemented this bridle on its looks and fit.

I would kill (figuratively) for Showmark to make these in black for the dressage crowd. Since I am trying to break into more dressage and my dressage saddle is black, I need different bridles.

I'm looking for something a little nicer than a rossi y carruso saddle. Something more along the lines of a collegiate, pessoa, or Toulouse. My budget for everything is around $800.

You might check eBay as well if you haven't already. There are some sellers that offer up full english "packages" where you can get the saddle, bridle and girth in one go. You are going to spend probably half of that $800 on a saddle alone given the styles you are looking for.
