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'!).

Simply a work of art.  The Nantucket Bridlework collection stands alone above all others.  Made to our exacting specifications and available exclusively at SmartPak. We’ve left no detail overlooked, from the finest American leather tanned using classic English methods to delicate stitching and highest quality nickel-plated brass hardware.  Innovative design where caveson and crown piece are incorporated into one streamlined and padded crown so that only soft padding touches the horse’s poll for maximum comfort.  Once you feel the quality you’ll understand why we consider this the bridle of a lifetime.  Rich Dark Nut leather constructed to maintain its luxurious look over years of use.  Padded monocrown with padded ¾” browband.  Fully padded 1” noseband (adjusts on both sides) with padded chin piece for even pressure distribution.  5/8" cheek pieces with hook stud ends. All hook studs are reinforced with nylon tape for added strength. Hand beveled, rubbed and finished edges. Highest quality nickel plated brass hardware with roller buckle on caveson.  Complete with 5/8" raised fancy stitched laced reins.

Size: Pony, Cob, Full, O/S
Color: Dark Nut w/ Dark Brown Padding (The bridle arrives unoiled. Shown only lightly oiled - two oilings will result in a rich Nut Brown)

    Nantucket Fancy Stitch Monocrown Bridle by SmartPak is rated 4.6875 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't hesitate! The reins are the finest I've ever used - they were soft & pliable right out of the box. The color is most definitely NOT orange but a deep, rich mahogany color. There are 3 keepers for the noseband, which needed a little stretching out, and the Monocrown means that you will have an extra buckle on the off-side. This bridle replaces an old Edgewood that doesn't compare at the same price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't Purchase, but BEAUTIFUL SmartPak brought this bridle to Equine Affaire this past November, and I instantly fell in love with it. The color is rich, the leather is like butter. I cannot comment of the Durability and Fit of this birdle, but I do know that you get what you pay for. A bridle of this quality will not let you down when it comes to durability quality. This is THE bridle!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Bridle/Rein Set!! I was worried about the color/softness due to the other reviews, however, when I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised that it was a beautiful reddish-dark brown color. The bridle was initially very soft and I use a one-step clean/conditioner on it and it shines! The reins and very new feeling, so I put some Lexol and flex it, so hopefully with time it will soften up, but they are not uncomfortably stiff or anything. The only thing that wasn't so great, is that the throat-latch is very long, so even on the top hole it is a bit too loose, but I guess if you have a thick-necked horse it will accommodate it. Overall, I absolutely love this set, especially since you do not have to buy separate reins. So just buy it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So close! I bought one of these in the SmartPak store because once I picked it up, there was NO WAY anyone was prying it out of my hands. The leather is incredibly soft and high-quality, the color came a lovely dark brown, and the quality is gorgeous.My only complaint is that the leather is wider, especially in the cheekpieces, which tends to overwhelm a horse with a more delicate head. If only they were a little narrower it would be perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPERIOR QUALITY!!! After a month and a half of searching for what I felt would be the most comfortable and best fitting bridle for my growing 4yr old 17.2H TB, I found the Nantucket Monocrown. I took the dive in ordering, having not been able to "feel" it first, but you will not be disappointed! Unlike some other reviews, my bridle came a beautiful dark nut brown, unbelievably soft, the calfskin padding is the ultimate in high-end quality, stitching tight and even. My suggestion: Do not oil this bridle, it only needs a good first conditioning and a good cleaner afterwards. If you're on the fence about buying this bridle, don't hesitate! It easily compares to Vespucci, Edgewood etc. The Monocrown is awesome! One very soft padded piece for your horse"s comfort! My very sensitive horse loves it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely bridle Very high-quality bridle, nice soft padding. Did arrive a rather scary orange color, but oiled up after 2 coats. Still a little lighter than I'd like, but not too bad. The reins needed some oiling and conditioning to soften up, but the bridle itself was pretty soft after just one or two coats of oil. Looks great on my grey horse, and the oversize was actually large enough to fit him!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality I purchased this bridle about a month ago. I have been using it regularly and have oiled it three or four times, and it is shaping up to be absolutely beautiful. The leather is soft and supple and clearly high quality, and is darkening really nicely (in the beginning, it was a sort of a shocking orange color). It fits a wide range of the horses in my barn. I have been able to use it without gloves from day one. It is padded in all the right places, and the padding is a nice dark brown color. I am very happy with this bridle.
