We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.
We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

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'!).

Why We Love This

The Antares Figure 8 Bridle is an impeccably crafted and innovative jumper bridle. Antarès Sellier has successfully risen to be among the best saddle makers in France. Antares Sellier France specializes in custom made saddles and fine equipment for horses, backed by decades of experience and improvements. This bridle features ultra-soft calfskin padding on the browband, noseband, and along the contoured monocrown that is truly luxurious. The innovative monocrown is designed so that there are no pressure points. Innovative browband, noseband and throat latch all descend from one single piece of leather. Please note the bridle is shown oiled.

    Antares Figure 8 Bridle is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful craftsmanship I love this bridle. It is soft and supple with excellent craftsmanship. Attention to detail which is common with all Antares products. Makes my boy look like a million bucks! I rated value 4 stars only because it's so pricey (But worth it).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Much of Everything Too much stitching and WAY too many buckles. I bought this bridle for the figure 8 nose band, rubber reins and quality. I got all those but I didn't realize that it would be overloaded with buckles. They are everywhere. So much so that it takes away from the horses face. When you add in the fancy stitching, all you see is bridle. The photo of this bridle is deceptive. The buckles you see in the photo and think are only on one side, are not. They are on both sides. I am going to oil it and hopefully it will tone down the color. This bridle runs large. I have a Warmblood that has always worn a standard size bridle. I have every buckle as high as it will go. You can't punch any more holes because of how it is all one piece. However, the quality is excellent. I would not recommend this bridle and I would not buy it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Figure 8 Out There! This is an amazing buy! Sure, it's more than your average figure 8 bridle would cost, but it's TOTALLY worth it! This is the only Figure 8 I will ever use and I will always rely on Antares for top quality products!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bridle on the Market The Antares Figure 8 Bridle is the best bridle on the market. The calf skin padding on the crown, browband, and noseband is very comfortable for the horse and is comparable to the quality of calfskin found on my Hermes saddle. The rest of the leather is excellent quality and doesn't require any breaking in and does not stretch which many of the competitors do. All of the buckles lay to the outside so it is very comfortable for the horse. Hands down the best bridle I've owned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Bridle! This bridle exceeded my expectations! The leather is superb, the workmanship is top drawer. Every strap is padded including around the mouth. The balance, beauty and symmetry of this bridle is amazing! As for fit, this bridle runs large. I ordered a size 3 (oversize) which he has always worn. It fit our horse on all the top holes. We exchanged it for a size 2 which was perfect. Thank you, Smart Pak, for an easy and fast exchange.
