    Yep its a Dy'on. I own the same bridle. The one shown is the jumper model. I just switched off that noseband for a simple cavesson and it looks great on my super petite Trakehner hunter mare. Too bad the photo does not show the brow band as well. That's my favourite part....it looks like a little diamond tiara across her forehead. Very pretty and elegant.

    I've had the Mark Todd version for about a year and a half now. It's not D'yon quality but it's nice and it's also about a third of the price with reins. I've been using it for schooling and at shows, I have no complaints at all. It's a really pretty bridle and should last a while, mine looks still looks great.

    Gorgeous!!!

    Do they make one that does not have brass fittings? I love the leather and the cut of the noseband and browband, but I hate the brass fittings.

    The brass fittings come with the jumper bridle. The hunter ones are nickle buckles. I originally thought that the brass would be too much "bling" in the hunter ring but honestly you really cannot tell. It is the nicest bridle I have ever owned and fits the horse so beautifully with the small cut out around the ears and padded crown piece. Its too bad they do cost so much though

    They Dyon bridles are amazing. I was just looking at them at WEF this past week and couldn't believe how much nicer they were than even the Hadfield's that she had hanging next to them-for almost double the price. They are worth every penny, in leather quality and especially workmanship. The stitching is so perfect and tiny. Just outstanding!

    I have had the mark Todd bridle and it's actually MUCH better quality than the dyon leather! I sold it but have a pair of the MT Reins and they are buttery soft.

    Do the Mark Todd version ones come without flash? I hate that little tab when the flash is removed, and have no need for a flash at the moment...

    I also don't like the flash, never use them. Thinking that if you cut off the little tab very carefully no one would notice. Otherwise, people seem to be riding in them with the flash taken off and the loop just there.

    you cant take the loop off sadly, but I guess its easy for a saddler to cut.

    I have cut the flash tab off a few bridles and you would never know. But you know, I really think you all are a bunch of enablers!!!

    I have a dy'on bridle, not this one but another model, and it is very nice, and since I bought it on a super sale, the price was ok. I also just picked up one of the Mark Todd bridles on eBay for super cheap (<$100) and it is really nice quality and I was very happy with it when it arrived. I haven't put it into use yet, so no idea on durability, but it certainly looked and felt high quality.
