For Sale: Antares bridle

So I did a thing. I saw an Antares bridle on sale for a great price and bought it without trying it on my horse. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Alas, my boy has a delicate TB-y face and it did not fit him, so now I’m stuck with a bridle I can’t use or return (those darn sales and their no return policies).

Let me pass my savings on to you!

The specs: This is a size 3 (oversized) flash Antares monocrown bridle. And it’s super pretty. It’s already been oiled once so the leather has darkened a bit, but it could use another deep oiling before use. It does not come with reins. It has never been used- I put it on Francis long enough to determine that he has a comically small face for such a big horse, and promptly took it right back off. Legit, it’s so new that the tag is still on it.

Note: the flash is removable, the little loop is not

I’m asking $300 to include shipping in the US, just so I can get some money back on it (retails new for about $500). I have a post on ETT on FB (I’m so hip with the acronyms), but lemme know if you or anyone you know might be interested! I’m happy to share more info/pictures.

And once someone buys this, I can get Francis one that ACTUALLY fits his purty little face. So someone please buy this. Do it for Francis.

    It’s so pretty! Shame he’s got a delicate face…or is it? lol. Copper has a tiny face, but longggg neck. I bought him a cob sized english type bridle the first time, but the reins that came with it were too short so we had to go back to Dover for the horse sized one and he wears it on the tightest hole (it works well because it fits Paige too). Luckily we were at the VA horse center so Dover was right across the street. Naturally his first show under saddle and we didn’t have an english bridle for him to go in since he’d always been in western tack when we schooled at home. 😉

      It’s such a sweet little face for such a big boy! I feel ya on the long neck struggles- mine are just barely long enough if I want to go on the buckle (which I’m not usually allowed to do haha). Haha show struggles are reeeeal

    Had the same problem with my TB Carlos and the Antares Bridle, except I bought a Size 2 and it just flattened all his delicate features. Best of luck!

      I swear Frankie has the Oldenburg body and the TB head. It’s too purty!

    Too big for my even-tinier horse, but I passed your info on to friends who might be interested.

    Wish I could be of service, it’s gorgeous! But my kids are all standard size. If I hear of anyone in the market, I’ll send them your way!

    Hello
    I have just read your post about the Antares Bridle. Do you still have it available? I realise it has been 6 months since you wrote this but thought it may be worth a try and I am trying to find this exact bridle.

    Many thanks
