Plymouth Dressage Bridle by SmartPak
I was very surprised at the quality of this bridle for such a reasonable price. The leather is substantial yet soft and pliable, and the hardware is very well constructed. I haven't used it long enough yet to speak to durability (the only reason I didn't give 5 stars) but it certainly is a beautiful bridle and of good quality. It is my first dresssage bridle, bought based on the great reviews here. It is a fantastic choice for a pretty yet practical buy.

This bridle is great for schooling and general use, even for showing. I received one for christmas and in the past few weeks got around to fitting it to my eventer and used it this past weekend. If the bridle is not broken in or ridden in often, especially with the noseband, do not "sit" quite well on the horse. I have been fighting to make the noseband horse-face shaped rather than flat. The only issue I have had with it is my horse ran off with it only about halfway on and tore the throatlatch but nothing else! I was actually really impressed! I'll probably be buying another one soon..

Soft and supple right out of the box
Despite some of the reviews saying that they had to oil their bridle when it arrived, I was so impressed with mine. Its soft , flexible and the browband and cavesson are very well padded. A beautiful and functional work bridle. The leather seems a bit cheap, however I don't mind that in a work bridle as long as the leather is flexible and soft. The headstall is lovely. Nice Job SmartPak!

I bought this to use for schooling, and my instructor was very impressed with it. Everyone that has seen it has commented that it seems like a much more expensive bridle.

Sharp looking bridle!
I got compliments at the barn the first day I used this bridle. One fellow boarder was stunned that this bridle was so soft, especially right out of the package!
I'll be purchasing a second one!

Very Nice Bridle
I am very happy with this bridle! The leather quality is excellent for the price and it fits pretty true to size. I had ordered the Cob size based on other reviews and considering the fact that my horse has a petite head but the nose band was freakishly small while the other pieces seemed to be made "full size". I returned the cob for a horse size and it fit perfectly!
I would highly recommend this bridle to anyone on a budget who wants a well made, attractive bridle fit for home or shows!
