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

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Brand is the Best Nicest leather you'll ever touch. Even though it's butter-soft, it lasts forever. I have one that's over five years old and sees regular use. It continues to turn heads at big A shows!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Very nice high quality product. Fits well & looks great. I'll be using as Handsome Harrisons show bridle with matching standing martingale. Trainer really liked them as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bridle It exceeded my expectations, the mintue it came i oiled it and it was dark in 2 oilings and softened up as soon as i oiled it, The padded crown piece is fantastic for my mare since shes sensitive behind her ears, its a great bridle, very classy and totally worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I was hesitant to spend a lot of money on a bridle, but this bridle exceeded my expectations.Well made, great fit and is stunning to look at.When oiled, this bridle darkens to a rich havana color.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality no need to condition before using. This bridle is great, and it is supple. Just buy and use - no need to condition and soak in oil to get it supple. It is just a well broken in bridle right out of the catalogue. I hate getting new because it takes forever to break in, but not this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I am absolutely thrilled with the quality of this bridle. Every detail is perfect and the leather is beautifully tanned. Unlike many bridles I've owned, this one is supple enough that changing the bit is easy. I would buy this again, its worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bridle This is the first review I've ever written! But after 8 months of looking for a good quality bridle - I finally found one in this bridle. Well worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Bridle! I was so pleased to see that SmartPak had started carrying tack. And in typical SmartPak fashion only the highest quality items are offered. I love the Arc de Triomphe line and I couldn't be happier to be able to order it through SmartPak. The quality of the bridle is amazing and you really can't argue with the price when you see how nice the bridle really is. I had previously paid double what I paid for this bridle and I was just as happy with this purchase.
