The one issue with all of these synthetic products was that they could be stiff when it got cold and they didn't shape as readily to the horse's profile as easily as does leather.
The first bridle I bought was a Wintec bridle. Cheap and useful, but not attractive. The second bridle I bought was from a friend, new and cheap, leather with some bling, but too big. The third bridle I bought was also from a friend but it suffered from the same problems as the second, cute with bling, but also too big. The fourth bridle I bought (okay ... this is ridiculous!), was from ZIlco, my trusted tack manufacturer. This time it fit, pretty well, but it looked plasticky and didn't hang very nicely. Big sigh ...
And then I found the Tekna bridle. Bridle number five. The material feels wonderful, the throat latch hangs correctly, and the cheek straps fit well. The only problem with it is that the brow band is slightly snug, but I am hoping it will "stretch" a little with repeated wear. I certainly hope so because there is no bridle number six!
Anyone need a bridle? I have four for sale!
