love this bridle. I purchased myb first one 5 years ago, and it still is going strong. SO easy to keep in this extremely humid climate. I am purchasing wintec bridle #3, and can't imagine why I would ever anything other than these Wintec bridles.
This is a gorgeous bridle! Wintecs synthetic material really looks sharp. I have had mine since Christmas and used it several times a week on trail rides, even in snow, and it still looks just like new. Transitions great into the arena for flat work too. Padded noseband is a great feature. It was easy to adjust and fit to my favorite bit. Synthetic material is a little stiffer than leather at first but quickly softens and conforms to my horse for what seems to be a very comfortable fit.
I'd rate this bridle higher than 5 if it was possible. It is very smart looking, and unlike leather, never has to be washed. In our humid climate, I just put my bridle inside a pillow case, tie it shut and throw it in the washing machine. It comes out looking like new!
