    Saddle - I don't know, it's old though. No knee rolls, flat seat, its my favorite and I learned how to ride in it. I just switched back to it last night from an actual jumping saddle.

    Bridle - HDR Advantage plain raised bridle

    Girth - I have one white rope girth someone gave to me to fit my hony, and a Courbette Overlay girth.

    Martingale - I really don't know, I traded for it and it's really nice quality.

    Boots - None for show, at home I use SMB 2's on the back and cheap splint boots and bell boots on the fronts.

    Field Boots - I have the Devon Aire Nouvelle zip ups, but I've been showing in a friends Devon Aire Nouvelle dress boots and they kill my ankles.

    Helmet - Currently a black Troxel with the dial system, I'm switching to a Tipperary Sportage Plus since I will no longer be doing any hunter classes.

In fact the leather feels amazing before it is even oiled or broken in and as far as looking like others, it has a padded crown with extra fancy stitching on the crown as well as the little silver Antares button on the browband. Yes it has all the standard pieces though, cavesson, browband, reins, cheek pieces, how different can it be?

    For $500 it is far superior in quality to the Beval Heritage, which is as expensive or more and a Hadfields will cost you about $700 minimum including reins. At least Antares reins are included in the price, a Hadfields will be over $400 plus reins start at about $275 and up. I think the Antares price is very reasonable for the quality.
    I guess it came out wrong, the one I saw on display at the store was definetly very nice! I had a different feel in my mind for some strange reason! The padding was soft but the actual leather felt no different in my opinion.. No doubt they are worth it though! Maybee I will splurge at the Masters this year!
