  • Bridle Recommendations please!

    Looking for dressage bridle recommendations please. Well made, attractive and good quality leather. It doesn't have to be a fancy brand.

    Check out Solo Equine bridles. They really are lovely quality for the pricepoint. Note: They may not have a lot of stock after their Black Friday sale event. Apparently they sold something ridiculous, like 600% more bridles this year over last years BF.
    Blackjak Refinery also seems to have some really lovely bridles although I have never seen one in person so I cannot attest to the quality. I think I will be buying one of their bridles before next show season. I've been looking for a brown bridle with a drop noseband and they make exactly what I am looking for. I think you can also mix and match sizes for each piece too which is awesome. They have an Etsy shop and the are also on Facebook and Instagram.

          Thank you, I have heard good things about Solo Equine so will check them out. Never heard of Black Jack refinery but will have a peek at the Facebook page etc. I am wary of buying bridles that people haven't had personally as love the great quality long lasting types that get better and better with age!

              Hey, thanks for the reply. I like the thicker band across the poll to balance out any pressure here and also a bridle that is designed with some anatomic thought. I am looking for a regular flash type bridle.

                  I sold a few Kavalkade bridles and those customers have been pretty happy with them, especially for how much they paid. They do run a bit large depending on your horse's size. I purchased a Solo Equine bridle last year and I like it. But I am planning on buying a Kavalkade bridle for shows when the times comes for me to need it.

                    I love my Eponia bridle. I have the Outlaw model. I like that it has a completely removable flash and lots of padding. It's good quality leather for the price and it's held up well to a year of regular use and, um, not so regular cleaning. I do think it might be a bit too much for a horse with a really refined, delicate head but as you can see that's not so much of a concern for my gelding.

                    ^please excuse the mare glare, my gelding isn't cooperative for photos 90% of the time.
                    I love my Econo-Nag!

                      I bought a bridle from Stubben off their web site, 2007 Conversion bridle I think. Anyways, it was 1/4 of the usual price, really nice leather, no reins (which is fine cuz i have lots) and was a true cob size. Rudy has a pretty wide forehead, but even the brow band fits. He loves all the padding and seems to be quite happy with his new bridle. I tend to get "plain" ones though because I think he has a beautiful face, so I only add a crystal bow band for shows.
