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'!).

The Passier Gemini Snaffle Bridle is a flat hook stud style snaffle with a Passier Caveson Special from the Passier Basic Line with an attention-getting strass crystal browband. Crank noseband. The flash strap loop is longer, so the strap is easier on the horse's mouth. The Passier Gemini Snaffle Bridle provides a stylish appearance as well as a comfortable fit.

Features:
- Browband with strass crystals with leather border - Narrow Passier Caveson Special (35mm) - Stainless steel buckles - Web reins with leather hand grips and stops. Sizes Cob Size, Full Size, Over Size

    Passier Gemini Snaffle Bridle is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality I have not used this bridle yet but it is lovely and the leather is of good quality. It is a traditional style, except for the crystal browband and is not the mono crown I would have preferred but it fits my horse well. I am hoping the leather will soften over time and with oiling, as it is a bit stiff.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase but one note.... This is a beautiful bridle made from quality leather with just the right amount of bling (I don't like too much bling!). The only thing to note is that the crank and the flash leather seem to be a bit stretchy so now after about 15 wearings I'm near the last holes, but since I prefer not to "crank" it very tight, it's fine for me. I didn't use the reins, I have rubber reins that I prefer. But overall this bridle is a GREAT purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Roomy Throatlatch, but STRETCHY crank! I've owned this bridle for 2.5 years now, and it sees daily use. I clean it weekly using passier products. It is a fantastically supple leather that has held up relatively well.I own the cob size, but the throatlatch could easily have 8" taken off of it. I keep it on the shortest hole and the loop droops down nearly to the back of the noseband.My chief complaint is the stretch to the crank. I do not tighten it tight (2 finger rule), yet in 2 years it has stretched 4 holes worth of leather!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Fit, Very Flattering Bridle I purchased this bridle at an amazing price at a local tack shop and bought it to resell at a profit. I have never been one for names and the Passier name did not impress. But the bridle is lovely and out of curiosity I did try it on my soon to be six year old Dutch WB. My horse has previously worn parts of his mom's old Stubben Weymouth, a KL Select Fanfare and a Custom Rolled Bridle. I have probably bought & sold a dozen other bridles trying to find one that fits and flatters. My guy has a lovely head, refined and beautifully sculpted with pretty eyes. About as classic as you can get, not overly large but very definitely has that WB look. The Passier Gemini fits and flatters like no other. The nose band and the flash band are perfect and for the first time I did not have to punch extra holes (he wears a 5 1/4" bit, the nose/flash band are always an issue). The cheeks are also perfect and again, this is the first time no extra holes needed. The throat latch is designed to lay perfectly at his jowl, nice and loose giving him plenty of room to bend at the poll. The throat latch on most bridles always seem more of an afterthought than a clever design, but the throat on the Gemini actually flatters. And this bridle does not overpower. The design is as clean and classic as you can get with just the right amount of 'bling' on the browband. The front of the noseband is long enough to reach around his nose and straps lay exactly in line with the straps from the cheek pieces. I hate when the front of the noseband is just a bit too skimpy and from the side of the horse all you see is straps. Same with the browband, it is amply sized for a horse with a broad forehead. There is no binding and my horse can wear this bridle without extra padding on the crown because the crown lies where the crown should. And lastly, the leather is lovely, not as soft as English leather, but amazing quality that will keep its 'new look' for much longer than a very soft leather. I can't complement this bridle enough for its fit and flattering appeal. Trust me, if you are fed up with ill fitting bridles that overpower and bind you will love this bridle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Great Bridle I purchased this bridle for my 5 year old Hanoverian gelding who has a fairly refined head but, at 16.1, very average sized. The cheek pieces were a bit too long, and the throatlatch was way too long, hanging past his cheeks. However, the bridle is absolutely gorgeous and the leather is very supple and soft. I had the cheek pieces and the throatlatch shortened a bit and now it fits my horse great. I would highly recommend this bridle to the dressage rider who is looking for a great bridle that will last for years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from !!!GREAT BRIDLE!!! I got this bridle as a christmas present and was thrilled!!! It is so beautiful and fantastic quality that you would expect from Passier. The browband is also beautiful. And what i liked about the browband was that it was not so tight like a lot of others have been, but the bridle did NOT slip back. The nose band is generously padded and the crank noseband is a must! I actually didnt get this from SmartPak, although it is definitely the same bridle. I said that because SmartPak actually has a better price by $10!

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
