The bridle came packaged beautifully. It’s great quality and is soft, supple, and fits my bulky 16.2 warmblood well. Some people complained about the thick to thinness ration of the cheek straps vs the noseband. I don’t agree and think it looks fabulous. In addition, my guy seems very comfortable in it and works well with this bridle.
This bridle came ready to go - very little conditioning needed to soften the leather and fits my Oldenburg nicely. Love the ergonomic and padded headstall. My boy now drops his head quite happily to accept the bit and bridle. Highly recommend!!
I saw an immediate improvement in the contact with both horses. They had white frothy drool and accepted the contact much easier. Well worth the price. They run a bit small.
"We" includes me, my horse and my trainer. My horse has a rather refined head and this bridle is a comfortable fit for him. Other anatomical bridles were too large and heavy in the crown piece. My trainer thinks it looks spectacular on him and is easily adjustable. I like the quality of the leather and the shaping over the ears and around the bit. I have both the snaffle and the double bridle in this model. The only tiny drawback that I would mention is the width of the crown piece where the browband goes. I like to have a variety of browband "looks" but the loops on many browbands are too small to fit on the Schockemohle. Just be aware of that when you're expanding your collection of browbands for this bridle.
Love it. Fits beautifully
