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!
Absolutely love the quality of this bridle and the very clever way it works. Easy on and off, and your horse is still tied as you slip the bit out with the ease of putting on a headstall. I own 2 halter bridles, and never use them because of the bit bouncing off teeth as you try and connect clips on both sides at once....sure way to make a horse start resisting. This handy dandy set up is perfect. Well done Phoenix!
The quality of the leather is very good, which makes it very hard to work with when it's new. The bridle going on over the halter makes it super convenient for me, but when it's new the bridle pushes the hard leather of the halter into my horse's face and it bothers him. Also, the snaps are hard to work. I'm using olive oil to try to soften it but that hasn't helped much yet.
All good except wish the brow band was a bit longer.
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!
