Wellfleet Eventer Bridle by SmartPak
High quality bridle for the price.
Lovely bridle; beautiful, meticulous white stitching makes it look like a more expensive bridle. And the wide, padded noseband, brow, and mono-crown make it elegant for show, yet substantial. I bought a Full size for my TB cross, with a little bit larger head, and it fits fine; could use an extra hole or two in flash now that it has stretched with use. I purchased this bridle over a year ago, and it still looks new. I did oil it, and the color got darker, rich chocolate hue now, but I have had no staining issues. The reins have a great feel, but wish the leather was a bit more substantial where they buckle onto the bit, esp. since it is an event bridle. The one side is getting weak there.

Love this Bridle!!
I am in love with our new Wellfleet Eventer Bridle!! :) I read some reviews that the it was big on some horses, but it fits mine perfectly. i ordered a F/S for a 17.2 OLD/TBx and it fits him perfectly..We have had trouble with F/S bridles streching and becoming too large, but not the case with this bridle! IT is beautiful, and the contrast stitching is really sharp :)

Just what I was looking for
Plain but elegant; which is what I have been looking for and a very good value for the price. (nicer than a NF which I had bought and returned because it ran small). Ordered a cob which 99.9% is a good fit-throat latch is on 2nd to last hole. Over all, I am very happy with my purchase.

This bridle is ok for the price. The padding is really soft, and the quality of the stitching is good. However, the finishing on the leather is meh. The edges, particulary on the reins are not finished enough, and the bridle bleeds some serious dye! Thank god my horse isn't grey! This bridle has stained several saddle pads (from the byte of the reins) and the elastic on my breastgirth is now reddish.
Sizing wise, the cheek pieces are a bit long, as is the noseband, but other wise I think it runs true to size.

This bridle is absolutely gorgeous. The leather is soft and the rubber reins are incredible. The throat latch seems a little larger then the rest of it.

Love the quality, leather is supple and the fit is wonderful, though I would say the fit of the noseband is a bit big.
