Icelandic Tack Isn’t Just For Icelandic Horses!

We reached out to Amy at the 5 Years To Tevis blog to see if she’d be interested in reviewing one of our bridles recently. Although she already had a teal halter bridle for her pony Pearl, Amy told us she’d love the chance to test out one of our other products in exchange for a review on her fabulous blog.

If you’re an endurance rider or aspiring endurance rider by the way, you’ll want to read 5 Years To Tevis. Amy launched the blog in 2016 to document her journey to reach the famous Tevis Cup, a 100-mile endurance race. As we know, working toward a major endurance goal requires a lot of patience and it’s great to have adult amateur riders support each other in a sport like this one.

Although Pearl is not, by breeding, an Icelandic Horse, Amy wanted to try our Icelandic bridle. For one thing, this style bridle is designed with heavier-but-shorter horses in mind, which made it a great option for Pearl, who is a 13-hand Appy. Amy points out it also has another useful feature: the option of fastening the noseband in front of the bit ring, similar to the Micklem-type bridle popular with eventers (although our design is different, just featuring the one attachment at the chin).

“I was quite impressed and happy again with the quality of the product. The stitching is tight and clean. When I first heard the thread was white I thought it would stand out more, but it actually works really well with the bright colors. The biothane itself is definitely sturdy, while not too heavy or thick. And I was impressed with the bling! Unlike some of the western bridles I have had, it is not just glued on. I definitely think it will stand up to daily use!”
