For those of you that have this bridle, I have a few questions: Does your throatlatch buckle on both sides? I found that to be interesting but sort of unnecessary. Also, I thought the "monocrown" design would mean that the noseband and throatlatch would all decend from the padded crownpiece, but the one I received has the noseband as its own separate piece, like a regular bridle. The quality and craftmanship are stunning, I just found these two things odd and wanted to see if I received the right bridle!
we have an Antares figure 8 and running martingale, and while I can't answer your question, your right, the craftsmanship is amazing and looks great too!!! Definately worth the money, we purchased them at Smartpak, luckily had a 20% coupon!!!
Darn, I have a horse size but I haven't tried it on him yet. He's inbetween a cob and full Edgewood so I'm thinking thinking the cob Antares will be too small
I don't think the cob would work on your guy. What about calling Brad at Antares customer service and seeing if they have any of the older more traditional style left? Of course you would have to pay full price. Otherwise, unless you plan to show hunters at Devon or indoors, I see no reason why you can't use the double buckled newer bridle in the hunters, since you got such a good deal on it.
