As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Harwich strap goods are crafted in durable imported vegetable-tanned leather.  Superb craftsmanship is reflected in the fine details and stainless steel hardware.  An excellent value. Available exclusively at SmartPak. The Harwich Figure 8 Noseband is raised with fancy stitch details. Fleece padded disk. Noseband only.

    Harwich Figure 8 Noseband by SmartPak is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Made of great quality but fit is difficult So I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Harwich bridles! I use this bridle for both the hunters and jumpers. The quality is great and soft. The biggest problem that I had with it was the fit. I purchased this nose band several years ago when they first came out and had the same issue then. I bought a new one hoping maybe the sizing would be better. I have an OTTB and this was just too big is some areas, around the nose, but WAY too small for others, the crown piece. I had to add extra holes, though could only fit two, to the crown piece so it would fit correctly. But then the nose piece I had to add holes because it was too big and needed to be smaller. The only suggestion I would have is options, cob, horse, oversize for the noseband to fit the heads of horses better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best "cheap" noseband ever! Don't let the review title fool you--this noseband is not the cheap, cardboard leather you usually get for bridle parts under $100. It has the look and feel of a much more expensive noseband, and it pairs well with my bridle and saddle, which have more of a cherry-Havana color. I have the matching Harwich rubber reins as well, and I'm loving the Harwich line--inexpensive, but not cheap. It's great for Eventers who can't afford to spend a fortune on multiple bridles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! this figure 8 noseband is beautiful enough to go in the show ring and sturdy enough for everyday schooling. Definitely worth the very reasonable price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Buy! I love this figure 8 for the price! It's really nice supple quality and holds up nice! It's a gorgeous piece of tack for the price!Dubs- I don't know if you'll see this but you aren't suppose to use a standing martingale (which sounds like what your talking about) with a figure 8. You can try a german martingale or running martingale though!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get it! I bought this mainly because the price was right and it looked nice. Exactly. My 17.2 draft cross has an enormous head, and I couldn't find a figure-8 in size huge. I took a chance and ordered this, hoping I could make it work. When I pulled it out of the package I was stunned by how nice it was. Fancy, raised stitching with a soft, fleece padded nose button. Unfortunately, it didn't come close to fitting her head. I attached it on the last hole, and the metal ring was next to her eye. I decided to oil it anyway, because I could use it on my smaller horse if it didn't work. I oiled it and I hung on it. I mean, I stretched it out good! I couldn't believe it didn't break. I oiled and stretched and pulled, and sure enough I managed to make that noseband fit her! Unfortunately I darkened the leather more than I wanted, and now the color is dark brown while my bridle is chestnut, but that noseband fits! My only tiny concern (not a complaint) is that the strap where a martingale would go is very thin. I'm certain that if she throws her head a few good times with her heavy duty martingale on, it will break. Wish it was as thick as the rest of the noseband. But at this price with that quality, go for it! It's a nice piece of tack.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Figure-8 Noseband! I just got this in the mail today, and can't believe how nice this noseband is in person! The leather was super soft and just the right color, and with a little oil, will go great with my expensive show bridle, like it was made for it. I was worried how it might fit my thoroughbred's head, as he has a fairly large head for the size of his body. This has so much room for adjustment and it fits him perfectly! I can't wait to show it off to my friends!
