Bidding is live now at https://uset.wedoauctions.com and closes on Tuesday, April 30, at 8 p.m. PT/11 p.m. ET. Watch a showcase of each beautiful, bespoke bridle from Halter Ego in a Facebook Live on Monday, April 29, at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET.

“From the outset, as a brand committed to designing innovative and stylish products for horse and rider, one of our main goals was to reinvest in the sport whenever possible,” said Halter Ego founder Wendy Latham. “The capsule collection we designed was truly a labor of love. We chose the finest Italian leathers and a variety of Swarovski Crystals with limited edition coatings in mesmerizing hues of bronze, silver, gold, red, white, and blue. This bespoke collection includes designs for all disciplines specifically to support the USET Foundation.

“Thanks to the Olympics and other high-profile events, equestrian sports continue to gain popularity, so the timing was perfect for us to partner with the USET Foundation as a sponsor of the ‘Equestrians in Paris’ benefit event,” she continued. “Beyond this year’s Olympics, we are deeply committed to USET Foundation’s Pathway To The Podium initiative and all of the programs they help support.”

Explore the collection and consider the striking white leather Repertoire Snaffle Bridle and matching halter, with a value of more than $1,000. It combines red, white, and blue in a stunning design that is sure to stand out from the crowd.

“The USET Foundation is grateful to Halter Ego for the hours they spent hand crafting the most beautiful bridles and halters in support of our mission,” said USET Foundation Director of Development Lisa Munro. “Their newly designed collection is a testament to their commitment to innovation and luxury, and the pieces are named after iconic Parisian landmarks.”

Many of the bridles are compatible with Halter Ego’s innovative Duet Convertible system and will fast become an indispensable part of your bridle collection as they can be converted from a snaffle into a double bridle for dressage. The Duet is a revolutionary design that features a removable curb hanger and invisible removable flash.

All bridles are all offered in full size, but Halter Ego can accommodate other sizes by switching parts if required.
