Wellfleet Figure 8 Bridle by SmartPak
Fit isn't right
I was disappointed with the fit of this bridle. The quality seemed like it was nice and the padding on the mono-crown was nice as well. I originally got the FULL, but when I tried it on my horse it was HUGE. I tried it on two horses at my barn and the noseband was big everywhere with no room to adjust and the throat latch ran too big as well. I exchanged the FULL for a COB and ran into the same problem. The nose band fit better, but not great. The rest of the bridle fit better and almost like a fULL. I tried the COB on a horse that has a dainty cob sized head and it was SWIMMING on her. Needless to say, I was disappointed at the fit of the this bridle and exchanged it for a different brand.

I'm loving this bridle!! Was ready for use after just 2 oilings, super soft and supple. The Full size is a hair on the large size, but not much - maybe 2 holes. I tried the COB size first on my OTTB mare (her dressage bridle is a COB), and it was WAY too small! SmartPak exchanged it for the FULL (thanks for free return shipping!!) and it fits great. Like I said above, maybe 2 holes bigger than I would ideally like it, but still have room to adjust with different bits.

Great bridle for the price
Really happy with this purchase. Great quality for the price. Have had to oil it considerably, but it is darkening up nicely. Quality of the leather is the same as bridles that cost 2 times as much.

Everyone is jealous!
This a a wonderful bridle. It fits great, and for once the browband on a horse size is not too small for a warmblood. The bridle takes oil well, the leather is beautiful, and the overall quality is some of the best I have seen.

This is a quality bridle for the price. I did order a cob size for my warmblood who has a relatively small head, and it fit well. The full size would have been too large.
