Purely out of curiosity -as price does matter to me!- what is the best quality bridle on the market today? So often on bridle threads, people say "It's great, for the price..." or "you can't get better, for the price..." So taking price out of the equation, what bridle leaves you drooling?
A friend has one...its leather is nicer then my best shoes (and I have some damn nice shoes). Just a beautiful bridle. The buckles are really cool. Another friend has a rolled bridle by Hennig as well....beautiful.
Wow! The cost of three of those bridles is more than the purchase price of my horse!!! Honestly I can't see paying much more than $150- $250 tops for a bridle- but I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth.

lol...I didn't say I own any of them (the Hennig bridle was more--I've bought a horse for less then one of those bridles costs!)
The OP asked if cost was not a consideration....

In no particular order as they are all different - Hadfield's, Antares, Dyon, Five Star, Ann Hubbard makes beautiful stuff as well.
Agree with this list, although I don't particularly love the styling of all these brands. But they are all top shelf. The older Hadfields especially are like buttah. My CWD is pretty darn lovely as well.
There is nothing like the Antares leather they use in their bridles, in fact I think its a bargain, its nicer than some more expensive bridles. Love my Hadfields as well, its worth every penny IMO. CWD makes a gorgeous bridle as well.
