Product Description

SALE! A rare sale on this beautiful quality bridle. Pretty is as pretty does and this one is pretty.

Compare McConnell's Elite Show Bridle to the best show bridles you can find. Made of the best quality English bridle leather by English bridle makers, this bridle features a flat caveson, newly re-sized to fit a broader range of show horses + pinchless buckle. Includes your choice of patent browbands in either maroon or candy red with or without white dots or black edge. Comes complete with 3/8" and 1/2" flat reins, all with buckle in hand (buckle in the middle). Single click upgrade to leather laced or full leather braided reins.  Fully finished leather with rounded edges and line stamping throughout. Uncompromising hand feel of the right weight. The leather is soft in all the right places and just feels of quality when you hold it. Stainless steel slip hooks on all cheeks and reins are sewn in with sewn-in leather keepers. Ends are soft enough to actually move and push to open the way they should. You can mix and match your reins here with upgrades to laced or beautiful 5-strand (3-strand on 3/8" width) plaited/braided reins...and now you can choose shorter cheeks and a draw tight/crank caveson if you like. Get your bridle configured exactly how you want it. Price will automatically adjust with changes. Stamped with McConnells for authenticity.

Available in Horse size for Saddlebreds and other full-sized horses or Cob size for small Arabs and some petite-headed Morgans. Dark Havana Brown (acceptable in the show ring for black horses too). Bowman's USA Bits, as well as the curb chains and hooks pictured are not included in price but are available on this site. All reins, browbands, and cavesons are also available a'la carte on this site. In stock for immediate shipment. Comes assembled and ready to fit to your horse.

****NOTE ON FIT - PLEASE READ: For best fit, please measure your horse's head and match to measurements below. You can easily select a different size of cheeks to shorten a horse bridle or lengthen a cob bridle (see Crown measurements). Our Cavesons are made to fit EITHER Horse or Cob, although they are adjustable within the measurements below. Some small-headed/narrow-nosed Saddlebreds, petite headed Morgans and some Arabians will fit best in a Cob sized caveson. Most Saddlebreds wear horse size. Our recommendation is to buy the bridle that fits the measurements below, then try it on your horse before you ride in it. If it doesn't fit just so, please contact us so we can replace some parts. No horse is just like the other. Measuring is the most accurate means to ordering our customizable bridles. mcconnellshorsesupply@centurylink.net ****

    This bridle is just beyond words. The leather is the best and the workmanship is just wonderful.
    It is going to look so great on our new Fresian mare.
