Plymouth Elite Dressage Bridle by SmartPak is rated 4.43609022556391 out of 5 by 133.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from very nice Very nice bridle. Got the one with the flash and the rubber lined reins. The padded poll is so nice as are the padded noseband and browband. I like the buckle ends instead of the little hooks, seems sturdier. I am learning dressage on my quarter horse and needed something better than what I was using to show in but still economical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Bridle! I bought this bridle for my half arab/warmblood filly. It fits her well. Nice soft leather. I was worried about the reins after reading other reviews. I ride with gloves and I like the feel of them. They do not slip. Great price and good product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bridle for the price This was a nice bridle under $100, with a true monocrown. It fit very well true to size. The reins are a bit bulky for me (small hands), so I kept my old webbed reins. Overall this is nicely made for American standards and didn't break the bank. The leather is a tad bit wider than what I am used to for a cob size, but it still looked nice on my horse's head.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice for the price. I bought this for the noseband. I needed a replacement flash, and it was going to be several weeks to have one made for my Jerry's bridle, so I bought this. It is quite nice for the price. I would recommend it to anyone on a budget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really nice bridle for the price I have been using this bridle for 3 weeks. It fit my quarter/app mare just perfect. She seems very comfortable with this bridle. The leather was soft and flexible. Very attractive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Quality! I absolutely love this bridle! I use it everyday schooling and in shows. The quality and price is hard to beat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice leather quality Nice leather quality and design! I found the brow band and nose band to be too small though. I find the complaint that brow bands are too small on bridles to be a common thing. But the too small nose band is because my horse has a difficult head to fit. I will find brow and nose band pieces to replace it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Bridle for the Cost but fit was a little off This bridle is very nice looking and soft right out of the box. I loved the reins grippy on the inside but elegant looking on the outside. However, my TB falls somewhere between a cob and horse size. I ordered the horse size and the nose band, flash, and browband, fit perfect but I'm on the last upper hole of the cheek pieces. I am going to keep it because it will still be nice for schooling shows.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice enough for the price I bought this in oversize as a gift for my mom for her enormous TB. The fit was good, the quality of the leather surprisingly nice given the pricepoint and overall it is an attractive bridle. But, the crank noseband version is missing a runner. So the extra bit of leather just flops around with no runner to tuck in into. Drives me a little bonkers! Given the other good points, I still recommend it. Maybe its something they will fix going forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Bridle - Runs a bit big Just received this - Straight out of the package, it is buttery soft & pliable! Sadly, I ordered O/S for my big headed boy but it swallowed him. He can go back & forth between an O/S & Full, but I ordered O/S due to many reviews saying it ran small. Oh well, I will be exchanging it for a Full since it is gorgeous & soft!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it - except the reins Soft, nice, ready to wear. For my personal taste the reins are too thick and too sticky. For now I flip them inside out which is easier to give to my horse when necessary. I will buy different ones soon. I don't fault the overall rating for this because it's a personal preference. Great quality, great price. Engraving is cool. Nose band is almost too small for my Friesian but it works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Dressage Bridle! I purchased this bridle so that my horse would have a high-quality bridle to wear in dressage competition. When I opened the box, the leather was already supple and well-made. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the bridle. My horse is a 16 hand high Saddlebred, and the horse size fit him perfectly. After a few uses, the bridle had done exceptionally well! I had mine monogrammed, and it turned out perfectly! The Plymouth Elite Dressage Bridle is perfect for all my dressage needs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great quality padded bridle for a great price I bought this bridle a month ago and love the soft pliable leather on this bridle! The padding behind the ears of the headstall and the padded noseband are great. My horse much appreciates it too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bridle Like other reviews say, it is VERY nice quality for the price. Nice leather, nice details. The reins are super grippy webbed/rubber with stops. They are actually TOO grippy in my opinion, but I bet some people would really like them as they are. Because the reviews and the girl on the phone said it runs small, I got a cob size for my small-headed horse. It does fit length-wise, but the nose band and browband are a little too small. I punched a hole in the nose band and it is ok, and I replaced the brow band with a blingy horse-sized one. I called and tried to buy or exchange the cob size nose band for a horse sized one, but they do no sell the noseband separately. Due to the monocrown, you can't just switch it out for another caveson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supple leather and ready to go! This bridle is perfect! Extremely well-priced! The quality of the leather is second to none and is supple and well conditioned right out of the box! Does seem to run a little large, so I bought the cob size for my 15h TWH. Sadly, the noseband is too small on him - would be lovely if I could purchase the noseband separately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price, weird keepers/sizing This is a nice quality bridle for the price. The leather is nice and of course, free return shipping if you need to exchange it. Two things-one the keeper on the nose band are not good (I havent figured out what happened to the keeper or how it is supposed to fit) and second the fit can be a bit wonky. My horse wears a full in Dover, Cob in Edgewood and Extra Cob in Jimmys. The full size in this bridle was so big it made him look like a mini in a draft horse bridle. I returned for a cob and it fit him pretty well except for the browband. I had to buy a new one.Aside from the funky/missing keepers on the noseband and the strange fit (though, YMMV) this is pretty nice bridle. It looks really nice on and broke in fast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bridle for the price! This is my first purchase of dressage tack for my horse and I was not disappointed at all by what I got. Arrived an entire day early and was supple right out of the box. Only had it for about a week but its held up fantastically so far. My advice is to NOT oil it when you first take it out of the box, maybe wipe it down if its a little dusty but I just put it right onto my horse and actually showed two days after I got it and it was perfect!My one flaw that cost the final star was the reins. They're good quality for the pricing but the nylon webbing design gave me a huge cut/blister on my ring finger on my left hand after an intense lesson. I admittedly did not wear gloves but with my old bridle that was just plain leather I was safe to go glove-less so this was a little irritating. Threw on a blister pad and some gloves and it was fine but still not amazing.Overall, great bridle, fashionable and function but I would be aware of the nylon reins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and great leather!!! I have bought several of these bridles and have loved every one. The leather is supple and lasts and the fit is true. Will buy again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a nice bridle! I received this bridle about a week ago and I am so impressed! I love how supple the leather is right out of the box, but the best thing has to be the reins. They are so pretty but also feel really nice.The padded, one-piece crown is pretty hard to find in this price range...believe me, I looked everywhere!Excellent bridle with an excellent price. Oh, and my horse looks very handsome in it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't beat the price for a mono crown! Nice for the price and adjustable on both sides. Love the mono crown.Reins were a bit stiff but soften with oil and use pretty quick. Padded crown and nose band are nice. The shaped crown for the ears is nice even if the padding is not shaped with it.The leather is about the quality of the Elite, not the toughest bridle leather but good.Can't beat even regular price for a mono crown though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice The cob size fits my 16 hand 24 yo TB mare best. It is set on the middle holes, so it has room to be adjusted if it stretches. The bridle is beautiful, soft out of the bag and a great price, just as all of the other reviewers have said. I can't say enough nice things about the quality. It really is a great bridle. Very, very happy with the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality comparable to much higher priced brands Purchased as a schooling bridle but quality comparable to my competition and show bridles. I added a touch of pizazz with the silver clincher brow band sold separately.
Date published: 2015-11-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much nicer than expected. Leather was surprisingly soft out of the box, lovely padding on the crown and noseband. Cob size fit my fine-headed Morgan mare without having to resort to using the very last holes. Reins not my favorite, but very acceptable for this price point and easy enough to swap out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way underpriced! I've owned this bridle for about two years now, and have been using it roughly 4-3 times a week. Now that this bridle has had quite a bit of use and "dirt" on it, it is beautifully broken in. Does not require constant oiling like the origional Plymouth did. I use. I only use Fiebing's soap and it has turned this bridle into butter. The holes have stretched over time, but I still have room to spare all over. The padded crown is very soft and not tight or bulky behind my horses ears. The buckles are sharp without being overly obnoxious, the reins are OK, not my favorite but definitely not the worst pair I've ridden with. It is very hard to tell the difference between this bridle and other expensive brands that are floating around our barn. Beyond pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bridle for the price! I recently purchased this bridle. I had been drooling over the Passier bridles, but just couldn't afford one at this time. I ordered this bridle, and it arrived in less than a week with standard shipping. Right out of the box it felt buttery, soft, and supple. My horse is a Percheron/QH cross with a HUGE head. I purchased the O/S flash noseband version. This bridle fit him with room to spare everywhere except the noseband (I think it's on the second to last hole). I LOVE the padded monocrown feature. This bridle is great for schooling, and would look very fancy by simply switching the browband. My trainer also loved the reins included with the bridle. They are leather on the outside and rubber-lined on the inside, The reins are grippy without feeling bulky in your hand. I live in Ocala with an abundance of tack shops and I couldn't find anything comparitive to this bridle at this price point. Very happy with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft leather I was very surprised at the quality and softness of the bridle. The mono crown is nice and padded. I ordered the cob size for my 14h welsh QH cross. He has a wide head and the noseband was on the last whole and the browband was snug. It looked pretty nice on him but I hope it stretches a little.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Plymouth Elite Dressage Bridle Not the quality I had hoped for. No where in the description of the bridle does it say "imported" product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit I bought this bridle for my hard to fit Quarter Horse Mare. After consulting with one of Smartpaks excellent consultants we decided on the horse size. It fit! I might punch two holes to lift the bit more but otherwise I love it.
Date published: 2015-08-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and comfortable! Right out of the bag I appreciated the quality for the price. Nice soft padding and the fit was near perfect. I have a 16 hand TB with an average head and bought the full size. In my opinion it runs a tad big. What I love the most is how comfortable Captain seems to be. First bridle he has worn that he didn't fidget. Purchased the crank style and it came with rubber woven reins. Was skeptical at first but I really like them. Nice and thick, easy to keep your place.
