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.

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'!).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from cheap leather terrible fit do not buy The leather is cheap painted type. It won't darken and doesn't match bridle terrible fit. Smartpak wouldn't take back because I tried to darken and yes I waited too long but I really think it is terrible quality. Buy the $100 smartpak bridle. It's nicer. Check out photos to see what I mean about browband being terrible fit and martingale not matching orange painted leather bridle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its awesome... after 3 months I bought this bridle about three months ago and although I love it now, I didn't when it first came. Right out of the box it was waxy and bright orange. It was also extremely stiff. I brought it to the barn with me that day and tried it on my large headed warmblood. It fit him great! I would have returned it honestly ... except that it was customized. I tried to oil it but the oil just sat on top of it. To darken it I eventually poured a whole bottle of hydrophane oil into a bucket and soaked the entire bridle in it for about 10-15 minutes, then set it out to dry overnight. When I went in the next morning it was much more supple, MUCH darker and actually looked its price. After another few weeks it was broken in and it looks fantastic on my horse! I use it for showing just because of the price tag. Now its a great bridle, but you gotta give it time and money before it becomes what its supposed to be. (also, if you take this to an antares booth at a show they will NOT oil it for you)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning! This bridle is absolutely beautiful! The leather is of top quality. It does have a little bit of something waxy on the surface out of the package, but saddle soap and a damp, warm rag took it off. It comes in very light colored, but it darkened nicely using the Antares leather oil after the saddle soap (I oiled twice as instructed on the bottle). It matches my Antares saddle very well now. Definitely recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Bridle! I had already bought one of these bridles for my fancy pony and just had to buy another for my daughters equitation horse! The leather was beautiful and soft and pliable and oiled up perfectly! So...for the first time I did the laser engraving on the crown of this bridle and all I can say is WOW! Wish I had done the other bridles as well! I have been afraid to do it, and now I have done it I want every piece of tack done! Sizing was accurate with the Size 1 fitting my Welsh x QH beautifully and the Size 2 fitting my petite headed Holsteiner mare perfectly. I did also acquire a Size 3 for my very heavy headed Westphalian and it was perfect. So I came out 3/3 on them!
