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 Imperial Bridle is, hands down, the best selling bridle from Arc de Triomphe. The Imperial Bridle is an example of incomparable craftsmanship. Made from genuine full grain European cow hide, the Imperial Bridle is raised and padded bridle and, above all, carefully detailed with fancy stitching to enhance the look (even on the reins). The browband is 3/4" and the Standard noseband is 7/8". Cheeks are 5/8" with stainless steel Herm Sprenger hardware (Made in Germany). Bridle comes complete with Raised Fancy Laced reins. Brown.

    Arc de Triomphe Imperial Bridle is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Purchased for show bridle. Extremely disappointed when reins broke during a George Morris clinic just after a jump. Owned appx 6 months and used at 5 shows plus this clinic.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive, but narrow I have been looking for a quality bridle for several months, and ordered this bridle after reading the positive reviews. My horse is a 16.3 warmblood with an attractive,hunter-y, and not overly large head. Unfortunately, I felt that the brow band and noseband are too fine for my horse, especially with the move towards heavier and wider bridles. I returned it, and ordered the Edgewood which I think will be more suited (and more expensive!!) to our needs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Bridle I purchased this bridle after having several issues with a different brand and I'm glad I decided to spend the money. The bridle is beautiful. I put one coat of hydrophane darkening oil on it and it darkened about a shade, which looks nice on my chestnut. I'm sure it would get darker if I applied more oil. I also put on several coats of Leather Therapy conditioner (recommended by ADT) and it has softened up nicely. I do wish there was one more hole in the noseband and throat latch (I ordered the cob size).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Padding isn't soft at all While the leather on this bridle is beautiful and sturdy (not "butter soft", but thats ok) and the stitching was great, the padding wasn't soft at all. It was completely flat, and also the "padded" monocrown was a monocrown, but had absolutely no padding on the bottom of it, only a roll-like thingy of padding on the front behind the ears (and even that wasn't soft). It was pretty much like there was no padding at all! Also, the sizing is pretty weird my warmblood always wears a cob size bridle, and while the cheekpieces/throat latch fit him fine, the browband was about 2 inches too small and the noseband 2 inches too big. Pretty bizarre. Even though I didn't like it, I am overall very satisfied with Smartpak because customer service here is awesome and they refunded me and took the bridle back for free.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Bridle I recently purchased this bridle for my Thoroughbred mare. It fits her perfectly, and the styling complements her dainty face beautifully, making a stylish statement yet not overwhelming her features. The quality of the leather is gorgeous. It took the oil nicely and is an even shade of dark brown. The fancy stitching is perfectly placed and tasteful. Could not be happier!
