Not a show bridle. Everyday use GREAT! Dunk it in water and it's clean. Complaint... The nose band is padded ALL the way around causing it to not lie flat where it buckels under the head, just and OCD annoyance, doesn't affect anything. No it doesn't look leather, though I prefer the easy care of synthetics.

i bought this for a first year students horse thinking it would be a good nice starting bridle, I knew it was synthetic but figured it would still be half decent. It felt like flimsy rubber and was clearly fake looking on her horse, I honestly would just spend the extra 40 bucks for a nice quality one.

My friend bought this bridle in black as her first bridle for her first horse, but when she started competing in hunters she had no use for a black bridle so she gave it to me. It was the best gift ever! I love how it's fully padded and I get complements on it everywhere! People come to ask me what brand it is, then when they get closer they're all alarmed to find that it's synthetic instead of leather! And, finally, a bridle that doesn't rub the hair off of my thin-skinned TB! It cleans up so fast and stays clean for a long time, plus in the years since it's been bought (must be about 4 or 5 years old now!) I will NEVER use another bridle for dressage!

I decided to go with synthetic because the humidity here in Hawaii causes mold & mildew on all our leather. This bridle is super easy to clean, I've used mine almost daily for lesson horses and 5 years later its still going strong. Fits both my fat-headed QH and long nosed TB. Highly recommend it!

I have spent money on several bridles, that are too bulky, too pricey and that just don't give me and my horse the edge we need. This is what my trainer has suggested and it made a HUGE difference in my horse and his actions.

I bought this bridle because I was looking for something low maintenance, and cheap for a first bridle. This is perfect. Fits my Paintabian mare perfectly. My only complaint is it is a bit stiff. Then again, it is pretty cold here, and it is brand new. I assume after a few uses it will be perfect.

This is an excellant bridle. It doesn't look or feel like leather but if your like me and do not want the hassel of cleaning leather thats got mold growing on it, then this is it. I bought a few extra browbands cause my horse has an unusually wide forehead and this browband is a tad small.

I bought this bridle, mainly looking for something inexpensive but nice enough do so local shows in. Having used Wintec tack before, it's always been nice quality, so I gave this bridle a shot - I love it! Very easy to keep clean, looks very nice, and really doesn't need breaking in like traditional leather bridles. It doesn't look like real leather, so if you are the sort of person who has to have the classic leather look, it may not be for you. If you're like me and don't mind that, as long as it looks nice and functions, I highly recommend. The only issue I have had with it, which is not really an issue, is the noseband is rather small on the cob size, but my pony is really more of a horse type despite being of pony height, and I simply consider him a small horse, and he does have an odd head to fit. But the throatlatch had a lot of room to spare. Because the noseband was buckled on the very last hole, the cheek strap on the noseband will lay on his eye on one side if I don't do some adjusting to it before I hop on. It's likely this is just a problem I am having though because of my pony's individual head shape, and really not a problem with the bridle itself.

I really love these bridles. I've had three (brown pony, black cob, black horse) and always loved them. They are very durible and easy to clean, and they do form to a horse's head over time (though obviously not as quickly as leather but it does happen). Overall I really like them. =)

I love this bridle it matches the wintec saddle and looks greaton my horse, the only thing is that I bought the cob size for my AQH and the rest of the bidle fits great but the nose band is a little small. But other than that its great.

I have a super fat pony and a TB and they both use the cob sized bridle. The only thing I dislike is that the nose band won't fit either one it is way to small. It is so small I had to put a hole in the very end. Otherwise it is a great bridle and I love it. It is easy to clean and looks like leather.

I chose this bridle simply because it would be easy to keep clean. I wasn't as impressed with this Wintec product as I was with their saddles. It has a slightly "cheap" feel, but it is easy to use. I use it on two different horses, and appreciate how easily it unbuckles so that I can raise and lower the bit. It does clean up very quickly with just a quick dunk in water and a wipe with a cloth. It doesn't fit my two Arabs as well as I had hoped. Even the "cob" size is a bit large. I have to buckle it near the top. It is a good product for someone who doesn't want to care for leather, but it doesn't have the look and feel of a high quality bridle.

My horse is a Paso Fino Arabian cross that has the strangest shaped head in the world, but this bridle fits with the Cob size that is and I am training him to be a jumper. This is the first English bridle he has ever tried on. He has a tendency to break anything that is on his head, and it is the longest lasting head piece I have had. Comfortable for my horse and stays on without slipping. It is by far the BEST bridle I have ever used!!

It looks great and it is maintenancefree I just clean it with a sponge and dish soap. I have the Cob size, and it fits well and is comfortable for my large pony and my Arabian. Also, the bit attachments are very easy to do they wont get stiff or stuck like leather ones sometimes do, so its easy to switch bits.
