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 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality. Huge sizing. I wanted a nice high quality bridle for my new warmblood for the jumper ring. She's very large, 17.2 hh and seems much bigger. I ordered the Antares figure 8 bridle in the size 3 and hoped it would be large enough. It shipped quick and the quality was top notch with beautiful leather, soft padding and nice stitching. When I tried it on her I found the brow band stuck out over an inch off her forehead it was so big and the nose band was loose even on the highest hole. Strange since she has a giant head. I'm not sure what it would fit, a dinosaur perhaps? I am in the process of exchanging it for a size 2. Hopefully that will fit her. It really is a lovely bridle-just don't order too large!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality I have 3 Antares bridles now and they hold up for a very long time. Love the quality and how well they break in. The detail the bridle has is amazing. Defiantly worth the money.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Bridle - Tough Fit for Refined Heads This is a beautiful bridle – I agree with the other reviews that the color is a bit too light out of the box for my personal taste, but the quality is lovely. Unfortunately I had sizing issues with this bridle. My 16.1 OTTB has a refined head, and typically wears a cob sized bridle with a full size browband. I ordered the size 1 in this bridle, and everything was too small, with the exception of the noseband, which was WAY too large. I think part of the issue with the noseband was the padding – although a nice feature for comfort, it limited the adjustability of the noseband.Again, beautiful bridle, but a potentially challenging fit for the more refined heads out there. Thanks, SmartPak, for the wonderful ease of return!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE this bridle! I bought this a month ago to replace my older Antares Figure 8 bridle and wow what a difference. Leather is amazing, super fit, I just wish it would darken more but that will happen over time I guess (like my saddle did). Can't beat the quality - worth the price for a piece of equipment you use every single day!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this bridle! Antares makes great-quality products that are more supple than stiff when you take them out of the box. The bridle has plenty of holes, allowing you to adjust it to fit your horse perfectly. It is luxuriously padded and I love the mono-crown feature. It has proven durable and it is a lovely bridle overall.Aside from being very pricey, the only downside to this bridle is that it does not darken easily. While it became soft and supple very quickly, the bridle remains a dark orange-y color. When I soaked the bridle in a plastic bag with Hydrophane darkening oil, it appeared to be much darker, but within a few weeks its original orange color reappeared. I've used darkening oil and the Antares oil, but it just won't get darker. I love the bridle and its color does not affect its performance nor is the color ugly, but for my own personal preferences I wish it would get darker.
