I’ve owned several Dyon bridles and have always been very pleased with the quality. This is from the working collection, so it’s cheaper in price and accordingly the leather isn’t as high quality, especially on the throatlatch. It comes not done up and the first time I went to attach the long end into the buckle, all of the holes sort of collapsed and created a seam. Since I’ll never have to undo it again (because of the snap) it’s not going to get worse, but it doesn’t look great.
It’s important to oil the bridle before you use it, as that softens up this leather which you might find brittle otherwise. Oil it the first few times, in fact.
The bridle itself is a very cool classic style and so great for swapping bits which I do often on my young horse. I would recommend this bridle and other Dyon products to people looking for a new bridle, just understand that the working collection is not as high end as the others (and priced accordingly).
