The Ride-N-Tie™ Trail Bridle is the ultimate must-have halter/bridle combo for the serious pleasure trail rider! Halter bridle combinations are a great idea, no doubt about it. Who wants to risk taking off their horse's bridle when it's time to stop for a lunch break out on the trail? Let's face it, riding with a bridle over the top of a regular halter just isn't, well. . .pretty. The Ride-N-Tie™ Trail Bridle solves this problem!
This halter Bridle is far and above all other "hanging* snap on sets. Just put the halter on, adjust for proper fit. The put your bit on the over the head hanger and adjust to fit, put on the bit hanger as you would with a full normal bridle, snap on each side holds bit hanger in place. I have a Paso Fino and the Ride n Tie was easy to adjust for proper fit. My horse appears to be comfortable with rig and he doesn't have to put up with any bit hanger bulk on the side of his face as the other snap on bit hangers cause.
I received the Trail Halter/Bridle and it exceeded my expectations. First let me say I am a dressage bridle snob so I set the bar pretty high as to whether or not I was going to like this halter when I received it. I definitely loved it! The leather is top quality, with nice stitching, and the brass hardware is a bonus. I was able to easily adjust it for a custom fit for my quarter horse. Now I have a trail bridle and a nice halter to use when going to shows.....It's like 2 for one. The snaps are very solid so I no longer have concerns about them popping open. Can't wait to hit the trails!
I really love this halter/bridle. I was not sure when I purchased online regarding quality and just went by reviews. I'm glad I did! The leather and craftsmanship is excellent. I purchased the reins also and they are very comfortable. I believe this set will last a very very long time. Shipping time was excellent also, which was nice. The halter is a little big on my mare's head, and I may have to add a hole, but she is a tiny thing. I still am quite pleased with this all in all. Thank you!
I am getting ready to order one of these bridle. This is the only halter/bridle combo I have found where the bit is attached to a full leather strap that becomes part of the halter, not just attached with a clip that allows for what I see as unstable movement of the strap attached to the bit. While I am a little concerned about the browband snaps popping open, I have not seen any reviews expressing this has been a problem. As far as the stitching, I have seen white stitching on "very" expensive bridles/halters and I'm not partial to the white either but I think your horse will appreciate the stability of the bit in this design and he/she will be forgiving about the stitching, particularly since the horse can't see it. Plus.....it is made in the USA and the Amish are excellent craftsman so I will take my chances and post another review after I receive my halter/bridle.
Love these, this is my third one.
