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.

Favorite Features

    Arc de Triomphe Imperial Bridle is rated 4.8824 out of 5 by 17.
    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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! This was my first high end bridle and I Love it. After having a bridle of this quality I will never go back to "middle of the road" tack. It's beautiful and feels so nice in your hands right out of the box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bridle EVER! I have experimented with different high quality bridles. I have had this one for 3 years now and it is, by far, the best quality and most beautiful bridle,hands down. Most importantly (to me), the reins to this bridle are soft and supple upon first use and this is the reason I bought this bridle set..I tested 14 pairs of reins and these felt like they were well broken-in soft supple edges on these raised fancy braided reins and were not even used yet. Other reins I bought were stiff and took forever to soften up. Even though they were supple they still look new three years later. I have recommended this bridle set and reins to many people. They are worth every penny. The bridle is padded and looks amazing and every time I condition it it looks brand new. It' has been throught ALOT and still get compliments from others, some asking if it is a new bridle. Can't say enough about this. Simply the best!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and beautiful I rarely review products, but I am so happy with this purchase. I did quite a bit of research on bridles before I bought this one and it's perfect. The leather is so soft and the quality is excellent. I bought the horse size for my 16.2 hand warmblood mare and it was actually too small. I returned and bought the oversize, which I did unfortunately have to punch a couple extra holes in a couple spots. I love it and would highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Bridle! I would absolutely recommend this to anyone, this bridle comes to you soft and ready for any use! I have used this bridle through rain, hot summers, and cold winters and it is just as beautiful when it came. Takes oil perfectly! I would highly recommend spending the extra money to buy this bridle, you can use it for a lifetime!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bridle Ever I have been riding and buying tack for over 20 years and this is my most favorite bridle ever. I have had many nice, quality bridles but this one is a winner for sure. It is supple yet durable, completely broken in from day one but obviously high quality to anyone that sees it. Lovely, lovely, lovely. Worth the investment for sure.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
