Beautiful Bridle by Lund Saddlery


I was lucky enough to be chosen as Lund Saddlery's 'Monthly Competition Winner' and sent a stunning Figure 8 Bridle, from their Hunter/Jumper Series. As always, before sharing anything on Gee Gee and Me I like to have put a product thoroughly through its paces...four months on I am happy to report that Oscar and I love it and I am sure you will too.

Lund Saddlery have a fantastic mission statement;

"Why pay more than 
you need to...?
Like many others in the equestrian world, we grew tired of dealing with the retail pricing of any decent-quality leather strap goods and saddles. Lund Saddlery was formed with the singular belief that top quality, high end leather tack could be provided to the customer for pricing that presents value."



Gee Gee and Me has been built on the foundations of buying well and buying once. I recommend what to save, spend or splurge on and I think we all nod in agreement whilst reading the founder, Robert's statement. Robert, is a Horsey-Dad...need I say more? He has listened to his daughters and created a range of beautifully designed tack for multiple equestrian disciplines. With consideration to those all important qualities that Dad's look for, safety, longevity and value for money. Robert and his family have done a fabulous job...

The Figure 8 Bridle is a grackle, made from Sedgwick Australian nut English Leather. Although a bit of a mouthful, the milk chocolate coloured leather is renowned for its consistency in both colour and quality, having a very well finished grain with little to no visible marks, making it the perfect material for horse tack. Lined with contrasting Italian leather, that provides padding to the sensitive parts of the face the bridle lays against. The leathers compliment each other perfectly and both are buttery soft, there was no wearing-in or repeated oiling required.



The headpiece has an anatomic monocrown design, providing an excellent fit and poll comfort and is contoured around the ears. The fit is true to size, Oscar's cob size bridle is spot on and if you're unsure, Lund Saddlery's Size Guide is one of the best I've come across, with each and every measurement noted. The fastenings are solid stainless steel hardware, the sheep wool nose-pad is premium grade, the intricate white stitching on the Hunter/Jumper Series proves it is all about the detail with this brand.


The same attention to detail is trademark of Lund Saddlery, the Web Grip Reins being no exception. Both hang beautifully in the tack room, being admired by whoever walks past them, they're impossible to ignore. Oscar is always complimented on it when worn...now for a breastplate, some stirrup leathers, oh and maybe a cavason snaffle noseband. Buy yours at Lund Saddlery's UK Amazon shop, and don't forget to enter their Monthly Competition on Facebook, next month it might be you...

Thank you for reading,
