McBrideTM bridles are made of the finest English and European leathers and stainless steel hardware:
- Full grain cowhide for durability. The epidermis (top grain of leather) is the strongest, most abrasion resistant part of leather.
- McBride leather is aniline finished - never pigment (painted) finished. (Paint can cover flaws in leather and seals the surface, stopping proper penetration when you oil your tack.) We use only first quality hides, tanned and curried to look good, accept oil and darken and mellow as you use your tack.
- Stainless steel buckles and hardware - polished, strong and rustproof.
McBride bridles are beautifully finished - carefully hand stitched, creased, edged and hand rubbed as English bridlemakers have done for centuries. G. McBride & Son offers this exceptional quality at a very frugal price. Imported. Bridles are sold without bits.
