Antares Product Review from SmartPak


RENEE: Yes, I have Antares. This is a really
amazing line that we are really excited to have and really excited to partner with. So,
this is the Antares Hunter Bridle. It’s beautifully crafted, it’s made in France, it’s made of
the highest quality leather. It has a calfskin padding on the brow band, nose band, and in
the monocrown. The monocrown is just one singular piece and it doesn’t have the caveson laying
against the horse’s sensitive pole, so that’s a really interesting feature. We have the standing martingale, as well,
so you can have a full get-up for your fancy hunter. DONNIE: Be completely coordinated. RENEE: Exactly. DONNIE: And do I see something for the DQ’s
out there? RENEE: Yes, we wouldn’t want to leave them
out. DONNIE: No, we wouldn’t. RENEE: This is the Antares Dressage Girth.
It has a memory foam insert, so it’s really comfortable against the horse. And it has
a really pretty fancy stitch design here, and it has elastic inserts so the saddle can
stay really nice against the horse’s back and not move around too much and also not
inhibit any breathing. DONNIE: We’ve heard a couple different products
that have memory foam in there. That seems to be really the way to go for your horse
for maximum comfort. RENEE: Exactly, memory foam is really popular,
and it’s also really nice for your horse, because it…maximum comfort. DONNIE: That’s great for them. RENEE: Yes. So, this is the Antares Snaffle Bridle. This
has a really interesting feature in the crown piece where it’s cut back behind the horse’s
ears, so it doesn’t press against the horse’s ears. And also, like the hunter bridle, it
doesn’t have the caveson laying against the horse, so it’s just one flush piece. Again,
the calf lining on the monocrown, the nose band, and the brow band, and also, an interesting
feature here is that all three pieces – the throat latch, the cheek piece, and the nose
band – all extend from one piece of leather. So again, just offering more comfort for the
horse, so there’s no pieces that aren’t laying flush. DONNIE: Antares really seems horse-centric,
making sure that the horse is comfortable and looking great, too. RENEE: Absolutely. They’re known for making
custom saddles, so they’re really taking the horses into account when they’re making all
of their products. One last thing that I’d like to say about
the bridle is, you probably won’t even notice it unless someone pointed it out, but it has
this really delicate stitching on the nose band and the brow band, which just makes for
a really complete look once it’s on your horse. DONNIE: Those are really great features out
of a really great product. RENEE: Yeah we’re excited.
