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'!).

Following the success of the Plymouth line, SmartPak is proud to introduce the Plymouth Elite. The Plymouth Elite takes all of the wonderful features of the Plymouth line and adds additional enhancements such as a true padded monocrown, buckle closures, 1" wide noseband. Offered with plain noseband and flash or crank noseband with no flash.

Complete with 5/8" rubber lined leather reins (flash) or rubber reins (crank). Available exclusively at SmartPak.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, expensive look This bridle was purchased for my new gelding. The fit was perfect. I'd even say it runs a bit large, as my guy's head is anything but small and we didn't have to let out any of the buckles on the Full.It's a tie for best feature between the mono-crown piece (so thick and comfy, loved the contours) and the modern buckles. I love not having those pesky eye and hooks to heal with when I need to clean. The reins are brilliant, too!I have used this for a month, with virtually no break in time. Just today, I gave it a clean and shine. It looks and feels great. Highly recommended! Cant beat the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Butter soft right out of the package What a great value. I do not ride my dressage horses with a flash so finding a black bridle without a flash was tough. I simply leave the crank looser like a cavesson. The throat latch could be a little wider and it would be a perfect bridle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft Leather I was very surprised at the quality of this bridle. I had it recommended on the Chronicle of the Horse forums, but still was surprised to find that it is MUCH nicer than a nearly identical name-brand one I bought a year ago for double the price. The leather is beautiful. Love the rubber-lined reins. I actually bought another pair of those to go with the older, not as nice, bridle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality of leather is fabulous/fit is large Lovely leather quality, just wonderful! Getting the right fit is tricky. My mare is 16h TB and I purchased the horse size....she is on the tightest hole on the bridle and the noseband, thank heavens that fits. The padded leather is so nice and after regular use and cleaning/oiling, the bridle continues to hold up well and is so nice.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a bad bridle for the price I was going back and forth between this bridle and the Harwich. I have a new horse that none of my tack fit and I needed new jump and dressage saddles so I wanted a dressage bridle that looks nice without being 300$.. both were in my price range but I chose this because of the wider noseband and the reins seemed different (I have so many pairs of webbed reins I didn't need another). The leather is a really good quality but I oiled it lightly because the noseband was extremely stiff and kind of dull looking. My horse is a big thoroughbred and his head was too big for my cob sized dressage bridle and he fits nicely in a full size figure 8 bridle, but this bridle in a full size is quite big on him. The noseband and flash fit nicely around but lengthwise everything is on the very tightest hole and the buckles all lay on eachother near the edge of the browband making it very bulky and uncomfortable looking. I like the bridle and will keep it but I will definitely have to buy some cob sized cheek pieces to make it less bulky and hopefully fit better.... the full size is definitely for horses with BIG heads not average horse size

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful quality A wonderful bridle that is well constructed and of very high quality, especially for the price. Supple right out of the box, and I love the rubber grip reins.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased I am pleased with the quality of this bridle. I have the standard plymoth, and have decided to upgrade to the Elite for the added benefit of the monocrown and wider noseband.The quality of the Elite is much better than the standard. I lightly oiled this bridle and then used it solidly for about a year now, and it has been holding up great. I purchased the flash noseband, and love the reins that came with it. At first I was hesitant because I assumed the reins would not break in nicely because of the rubber, but I was wrong. They're actually quite nice and I prefer them over the web/rubber coated ones that comes with the Wellfleet dressage bridle.I appreciate the updated noseband keepers, you are allowed to move them so the excess noseband slack can be neatly contained. I sized up to a full on my Morgan because the Cob wasn't working for him.Overall, pleased with the purchase.
