The bridle is of great quality for the price. The headset was suble enough to be used right away. The reins I had to soak in neatsfoot oil for a few hours, so it would lose the stiffness it had. But that is not my problem with the bridle. The connection for the bit, are a hook inside the bridle, it creates pressure points on the horses head. All bridles I ever owned had the closure on the outside for easy removal of the bit while still on the horse. I was seriously thinking sending it back, because of this, but instead wrapped the hook closure with medical tape so it would not poke my horse. That works since it is a work and training bridle, but it does exclude going to shows in it.
Other than the hooks on the inside, it is a great bridle for the price, just wish they would changge the hook close to the ouside, for easy removal of bit and to keep the pressure of the horse created by the hooks.

For the price, this bridle is fantastic. The color was darker than I'd thought it would be but it still matched my saddle alright. It was a bit stiff but that's expected. Overall, love it. Fits perfectly :)

I really like this bridle a lot, but it rubbed on my horses nose a little bit from the noseband so i had to put duct tape on the inside of the noseband, but my horse's nose might just be sensitive, but I like this bridle a lot.

I love it! I have been using this bridle for about a year and it is awesome! It's a bit stiff, but oiling helped and I have no complaints. NOT a "cheap" bridle and well worth the cost.

Very nice color and stitching detail. The tanning has cracked in some places for me, but doesn't seem to hinder function. Looks great on the horse. I'm sure with a little more time it will break in. Not bad for the price. And honestly, who really asks what brand you use? If you never say, "Ya, it's a Kincade", then no one would ever know the difference.

I ordered this bridle in a cob size for my large pony about 2 years ago, and it is still going strong. It is used regularly (3 to 5 days a week, on average), and is still as strong and durable as it was the day I got it. I would definitely recommend this for any rider.

I purchased this for my daughter's pony and it fits perfect. We had to return the first one as a loop on the reins broke during assembly, but STL replaced it pronto! The replacement had no problems. It is a bit stiff, but the trainer told us to soak it in warm oil and then roll the reins both ways to loosen them up. May try that.

This bridle is amazing. It fits my mare very well, and is well worth the money. However, it does take a lot of work to break in the reins, but everything else broke in nicely and very easily. This bridle is great for shows and schooling. Overall, it is well worth the money.

This bridle is amazing. It has beautiful stitching, great color, superb quality. It looks like a 400 dollar bridle. Horses will take too it easily and it is comfy for you and for them. Goregous. If I needed too I would buy this all over again. It goes perfectly with anything that is kincade and brown. I have the kincade saddle in brown and the girth too and it looks amazing with the bridle! Great buy.
