I have now had my Lund Saddlery flash bridle for a number of months and wanted to share my thoughts with you all.
Price: Bridle – $200 CDN (approx $150 USD) | Reins $90 CDN (approx. $68 USD)
(dependent on the exchange rate)Review: Just like my 5 point breastplate the details on this bridle are fantastic. The stitching is tight and looks crisp (what you see is really what you get). In addition to looking nice the padded mono crown of this bridle adds a more modern touch to a very classic looking piece of tack. The quality of leather is what you would expect from sedgwick and I really feel like this thing will survive anything. I have been very unkind to this bridle (seriously everything short of just hosing it off) and it still doesn’t seem worse for the wear. A quick wipe with a damp sponge and she is ready for action! Sizing wise Annie is in a cob which is fairly standard for her as she is in a size 2 CWD bridle and also wore a cob SmartPak bridle that was actually almost too big for her.
At our last horse show Bear somehow lost his collar and since then has been wearing the flash from this bridle. Maybe Lund will start making dog collars???
The reins are more than worth the money – fancy stitched + rubber?! Beautiful. These reins initially took some getting used to as I am more accustomed to the NunnFiner soft grip. Now that I have been using these daily for a few months I love them. They have just the right amount of give and remain grippy even if they are wet or sweaty.
Bottom Line: If you are looking for an affordable quality bridle that will survive just about any kind of abuse you can think of this is the bridle for you. Lucky for you all this months giveaway is this very bridle!
