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 leather constructed to maintain its luxurious look over years of use.  Padded monocrown with padded 5/8” browband.  Fully padded 1” noseband (adjustable on both sides) with padded crank chin 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.  Comes complete with 5/8” premium Anti-Slip rubberized web reins with leather stops and hook stud ends.

    Nantucket Padded Monocrown Dressage Bridle by SmartPak is rated 4.2857 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful craftsmanship, odd sizing I was debating between this and a Shleese. I went with this due to the thinner leather, hoping it would accent my Arab and fine-headed TB's features. It definitely does that! Very pretty, wonderful leather and grippy reins.However, the sizing is not traditional. My horses are both in a full Wylde jumper bridle, but they're on the top holes. I ordered a cob in this bridle, and it fits my Arab but isn't perfect on my TB. Just something to consider! Very happy wit the quality and will highly recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this bridle! I bought this bridle when it was on sale and I am SO glad I did! This this is absolutely beautiful. The leather is pretty soft right out of the box, but I used a couple coats of leather balsam and now it is to die for! I got the full size for my appy that is in between a cob and a horse and if fits him on all the top holes. I also got the laser engraving and it came out so nicely. All in all I am extremely happy with my new bridle. Highly recommended!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bridle Very nice leather and stitching, however, I found the headstall and browband area to be small in the cob size compared to the german cob sized bridles. Would probably work on an Arabian type head, otherwise, it might be necessary to order the Full size and have it taken in. Nice reins included.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice bridle While the quality of this is quite nice, the cob-sized is quite big through the crown and throatlatch, and with a ring snaffle had to be adjusted on smallest hole to fit.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nantucket Bridle Made in India? I was excited to be ordering a new bridle for my horse, had been waiting several years to do so. I wanted to buy one that I had confidence in the quality, so decided to buy one of the Nantucket series since the name implied it was made in the USA. Imagine how surprised I was when the tag said "Made in India". Knowing what I know about outsourcing to India and the relative costs compared to USA, I felt cheated on the price since I know it did not cost that much to produce. Just hoping the quality was worth the price, only time will tell how well it holds up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully constructed bridle I bought this and one other bridle (a KL Select) to try on my horse. The Nantucket's craftsmanship seemed to be much better than the KL Select. I liked the leather slightly better on the KL, but the leather on the Nantucket is almost as lovely and less money. Plus, the stitching is perfect and the overall look of this bridle was so much better. It would look best on a more refined head as the noseband is only about and inch wide.One word of caution, my horse gets pinched by the hardware on the noseband when I'm tightening it if I'm not careful. I have to put my hand under it as I'm tightening it and really watch for it, as my horse let me know how much that hurts!I am very happy with this bridle and would definitely recommend it!
