Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bridle for the price Got this bridle in July and have so far liked it. It was a little stiff when I put the bit on, but loosened up pretty fast. It was a little big on my mare, but my mare has a very smalll arab head that is hard to fit. Overall a nice bridle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bridle For the price this is a pretty nice bridle. I love the reins. It fits rather large on the cheek pieces, where others areas fit a little smaller, but it still fits well. It looks very nice and I would have no problems showing in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd Buy 3 More!! My horse and I LOVE this bridle. The leather is supple upon arrival and fits beautifully. The only down side is the elastic in the reins is breaking more and more everyday but I dont even care. The value of this inexpensive bridle is so so so worth it! I would just buy separate reins. BUY THIS BRIDLE! :) :) :) :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bridle for the money This bridle has that good leather "smell" ! and is a good value. Unfortunately, my horse is one of those "in between" sizes and nether the full or cob sizes fit :>((.But if it has fit, I would have been thrilled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bridle I bought this as a schooling bridle but I think that it would work well as a lower level over fences show bridle. It fits my QH gelding well, I am just starting him english and didnt want to risk my expensive bridle on face scratching. The leather is a bit stiff out of the box, but it is quality and oils up well without a problem, I dont like the rubber reins though. I switched them out after the first ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great qulity bridle Great quality bridle for the money. The quality is what you would expect in the more expensive leather products. Quick shipping and free shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wasn't expecting the leather on this bridle to be nearly as nice as it is, and when I took it out of the box I even thought it might be too big on my mare's dainty head (that has happened with several other brands). I'm pleased to say that it fits beautifully, looks expensive, and is overall a beautiful bridle. My mare is a 16h WB with a normal sized head but smaller nose, and it adjusted to fit her perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value After purchasing the Plymouth dressage bridle for my pony, I was sold on the Plymouth line of bridle work and and came back for an eventing bridle for my horse. This is a nice bridle for the price, especially considering it comes with reins. I like the rubberized web reins that come with this bridle and find them easy to ride with in all types of weather.The fit isn't the greatest as some parts of the bridle are adjusted on the shortest hole while others are on the longest hole but it works for my horse.Thanks SmartPak for providing another nice product at a great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks to be nice quality! I bought this but ended up not needing it. I'm impressed with the quality of SmartPak's bridle! The value is very good. Did not have a chance to evaluate durability and fit, but based on measurements (kindly provided by the SP expert customer service), I would expect this to be a great bridle for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart, Beautiful, Affordable!! I won't ever buy any other brand of bridle ever again. Only Smartpak!! Not only are they affordable, but unbelievably high quality! Soft and supple straight out of the box with a great fit on all of my horses! Not only good looking, but durable too! I have one Plymouth that's a few years old that's still looks new and gets compliments every where I go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent schooling bridle I school a lot of horses and handle a lot of tack and this bridle is simply the most supple and versatile I've ever seen in this price range. My 17.1 TB has an enormous head and a narrow nose so I was worried about the fit, but it was perfect for him. He's been using this bridle for a year now, and with regular cleaning and oiling it's just as lovely as when I first got it. I'll certainly be using it for schooling shows when he's ready for them! The rein stops are also a nice addition for my running martingale.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent bridle I was a little dissapointed at how much dye I found rubbing off when i oiled this bridle. The dye coming off was almost purple, and i was using a white rag so there was no discoloration, however when I took the bridle out in the sun it was a much different color, thank goodness, take note this bridle arrived a much darker chocolate brown then the one in the picture above. It is more the color of the wellfleet flash eventing bridle. The padding is wonderfully soft and the leather is soft enough to bend and flex (after oiling and a little rolling) that it seems like it will hold up fine, it is pliable enough to allow flexing on the horses face. The keepers were fitting a bit loose. Alltogether I would say this is a great schooling bridle and nice enough for schooling shows but I wouldnt seriously compete in it. As it failed to keep the horses mouth shut ,a bit more adjustability in the canveson would be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasently Suprised I was not expecting the quality that came out of te box for the price I paid. Boy was I wrong. This is a beautiful bridle at a economical price. The fit however i find is weird. For one a horse size was rather large. My 16h quarter horse I have almost everything on the last hole & my throughbred only one notch down. It's also difficult to size because last hole is to tight and one down is to loose. Overall however this bridle is a prize! No one can believe what I paid for it. Thanks smartpak!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed :( After all the rave reviews of this bridle, I was very excited about it. I was fairly disappointed with this purchase. After oiling the bridle really well it was still extremely stiff and unyielding and one of the cheek pieces wouldn't fit into the keepers even with a lot of stretching! Overall I was disappointed in this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Supple Bridle Great bridle for the price. Very soft supple leather. I was surprised how soft the leather was. Fits my Warmblood very well. Only complaint would be that the leather straps holders take a while to break in to secure the leather pieces. Other than that a great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Supple Bridle This bridle was surprisingly very nice! The leather was very soft from the start! The sizing was true to size my 17'2 hand Warmblood went in the O/S size and it fits well! I love the quality of the leather. It is perfect for daily use and flashy enough for shows. A great steal for the price. I am going to order another for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow In the past I just bought 35 dollar bridles from a local tack store, they held up for a few years and id throw them away and get a new one. I decided to buy this one for the flash and was pretty reluctant to buy a bridle for more then 40 dollars (going to college doesn't provide much money for horse tack). I read the reviews so I knew the hardware wouldn't be brass, but thats fine it still looks great. I got the full size and it fit my 17h TB with an average size face perfectly. I took it out of the box and the leather was very nice, I decided to oil it anyways, and WOW after oiling it it was 100x nicer then it already was and I was already impressed. For 65 dollars (and even probably 100) it is definitely worth it. The leather is soft and very nice, doesn't seem to scruff like my cheaper bridles, I don't know how I feel about the reins but I think with gloves they will be perfect. Fit my horse very well and there was a lot of extra room to adjust, so I feel like the fit will be good for everyone, not just me. The color is perfect, very dark and rich and looks excellent on my bay horse. The only problem I have now is that I am going to become a bridle hoarder because I love this bridle so much... I did see the logo on the top of the bridle and the reins, but its not that obnoxious and I plan on changing the reins if I show anyways, and for hacking around its not like they are bright and obnoxious so its fine. Id be upset if it was on the front of the noseband, but its at the top where you can hardly see it and its pretty faint. I highly recommend this product... but don't buy it because I want to buy out the stock since I love it so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely bridle At a great price, very soft and very supple, only thing I would change is the reins, they are very stiff and have really torn up my hands. I prefer rubber on a jumper/event bridle instead of the web rubber mix since the web part slides too much.Overall though, it fits well and is really a lovely bridle, I have had many compliments on it.
Date published: 2011-12-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bridle for the Price I think this is a very nice bridle for the price. It is nice looking and the leather was soft and flexible right from the start. There is a little bit of freying on the back of the noseband buckle strap, but only I will ever notice it. I think we will be happy with this for a long time to come. I might have done a bit better to have ordered the next smaller size, as we are on some of the shortest settings. My horse is about 14.3 h and I have the full size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bridle, Awesome Price! I am really impressed with the quality of this bridle for the price. First thing I noticed when I opened the box is that it smells like quality leather. It feels nice, is soft and pliable without being flimsy, and is just in general a very nice bridle. The color is definitely darker than the photo, it's more of a rich chocolate brown, but still pretty!Quarter horse riders, take note; this bridle fits the wide-but-short head, large jowled QHs wonderfully. I usually need an oversize browband on a full size bridle to work with my mare's face, but this bridle fits perfect as-is!Another awesome item from Smartpak, I'll never doubt their quality!
Date published: 2011-10-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Schooling Bridle I bought this bridle for my 17h Thoroughbred. There are plenty of holes to adjust the bridle which I love since George was just a little too big for a horse size bridle. I agree with a lot of the other customers on here about how supple the leather was! I didn't rank the durability because I've only used it for a couple of weeks. My only complaint is that the browband was a little big on him and sticks out too far. Other than that, I think that this bridle is great! Very satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bridle My western tack with an additional noseband was not working for my mouthy colt. I decided to cross over to the english world and give this bridle a try.I was surprised how soft and supple the leather is and the craftmanship that went into this bridle. The full size fits my mustang/arab well and the option to have his name engraved is a nice touch. My little guy embraced his new gear with a closed mouth and a great first ride, and we haven't looked back.One point that needs to be clarified; the description states the bridle has stainless steel hardware and brass buckles and the photo shows brass hardware. My bridle came with stainless steel hardware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Bridle I haven't bought a bridle for years. But this one really lives up to it's reputation. It's soft right out or the box. No need to break it in. I wasn't sure about the fit, since the TB I'm riding right now has a big head, but the full size fits him just right. I was hesitant about the rubber reins, but after using them I really like them. They are a bit hard to clean with a sponge, since they tear it up, so I use a small cloth. I have had this about a month, so I don't know about the durability. Seems like it should be fine, because it is a very quality bridle for the price you pay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this bridle from the time I opened the box My trainer and I were both very impressed with the quality of this bride for the price. It looks lovely on my 1/2 Arab and the fit was perfect (he wears a full). The leather was soft and supple and the bridle adjusted easily. The reins were interresting (very grippy), but I knew when I purchased this bridle I would be changing out the reins to laced ones. The brand name and size were stamped on the poll piece, which I did not like and the color rubbed off in patches on the noseband after one use (my boy likes to rub his face on his leg). The bridle does NOT have brass buckles as advertised, which was disappointing since it looks so good in the picture with the brass buckles. Overall it is very good for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Quality! I was pleasantly surprised by how soft & supple the leather was right out of the box. It was easy to put together, & it appears to be very nice quality, especially for the price. The full size fit my Paint gelding nicely. I love the reins as well, they're very grippy, & I very much prefer them to plain braided leather reins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Worth it!! I've been having a hard time deciding on a bridle for my Percheron/QH mare who has the size of a head between a FULL and an OVERSIZED, either one is a tick too small or a tick too big...I bought this bridle as an O/S and while it is a tick too big, I love it. I've only used it a few times, but I am absolutely in love with this bridle. It's so supple and it looks phenomenal on my horse.Probably one of the best investments I've put in a bridle ever in my entire life.
Date published: 2011-06-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice bridle for price! Both my horse and I are very happy with this bridle. The leather is quite supple from the start and it looks very handsome on my horse. He also seems to really like the flash noseband. He tends to fidget with his bit and this seems to actually calm him a bit. I highly recommend this nice bridle.
