    Default TOTD flash bridle ... Galway or Bobby's?

    TOTD has their flash bridle back up. I've read old threads that have stated it is the Nunn Finer Galway, and others that say it is Bobby's. Anyone have it? Can you comment on which brand it is and the quality?

    Thanks!

    I have one and I don't know if it is the Galway or Bobbys, but it is stamped with Nunn Finer in a couple of different places. It's an ok bridle for the price, good for schooling but the leather is a little weird. It's almost like it is leather with a slick plasticy coating that I feel I could scrub off of I tried hard enough.

    I think next time I want a $70 bridle I'll definitely just go to Bartville!

    I love my Galway!!!! I treated it with bees wax as soon as it got it. Since its new I treat it almost every time I use it. The bridle is very attractive on. I got a pair of the soft grip reins and put them on and it is officially my fav bridle!

    Pretty sure it's the Galway. And I think Bartville makes the NF stuff.

    Beeswax? Do you buy just plain beeswax or do you have a specific product that you use? Is it sticky?

    Some of the Nunn Finer stuff is from Bartville, but not all of it. Certainly not the TOTD bridle.

    If you look in their catalogue, all of the items marked "Made in the USA" are from Bartville, and the "Imported" leather goods are not.
