Why We Love This

The Dr. Cook® Leather Bitless Bridle was developed by Dr. Robert Cook after years of research, inspiration and perspiration!  The Dr. Cook® Bitless Brides are marketed all over the world and used in all disciplines. It is the most accepted and trusted 'bit free' bridle on the market.  The Bitless Bridle allows the rider to communicate by painless pressure that is distributed around the whole of the head.  The Dr. Cook Leather Bitless Bridle is handcrafted out of a beautiful raised leather.

Favorite Features

  • Made from high quality english leather from Segwicks of England's English Bridle Leather
  • Raised leather gives this bridle a beautifully classic look

HappinessGuarantee
At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Dr. Cook® Leather Bitless Bridle is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love this bridle I bought this bridle for one of my lesson horses who suffers from Eroth ( gum disease). Before the bridle, he was not too beginner friendly because he would not steer with little ones when he had a bit in his mouth. After much research on bitless bridles, I decided to go with this brand and I absolutely love it and so does Q!!!! Now we are both happy and he can be ridden by all my students! It is very appealing to the eye and the leather is of great quality! My only wish is that it came with reins for the price but well worth the money regardless!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made. I bought a month ago. Have not used yet. It is good I have multiple horses as it looks and feels really nice, however small for cob size. It only fit my smallest horse.
    Date published: 2017-11-09
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for speed horses I love the quality of this bridle, It has great pull power for turning. The only problem is that speed horses blow right through it. I had a gelding with a steel nose mechanical hackamore. I needed something 4h approved. I could not control my horse at a canter. I had no power to stop. I had to return this bridle

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I bought this product a month ago and the leather is already cracking it's been cleaned after each use over all it's a nice bridle aside from the leather

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I was able to ride XC in a show in this bridle. My horse loved it and we upped clean!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great bridle, poor sizes :( The quality of the bridle is really great, the horse will respond to it. The bridle itself is beautiful, but, sadly it runs small. The horse size has a too small nose and to fit my Paint horse, who is an appendix. SmartPak, please make the nose and bigger- you can always punch some holes if it will be too big..

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well I have only tried this for the past two weeks but my horse had no trouble communicating through this instead of a bit. I would give it 5 stars but I wish it was more supple leather. Otherwise I really like it.
    Date published: 2016-07-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bridle! Better than the older version. I bought this to use with my English saddle and it is a great match, especially with the matching reins. It is easier to put on the horse than my earlier version of the Dr Cook bridle. My horse likes it and listens well with it on.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed in the quality I was disappointed in the quality of the leather for the price. I have paid similar amounts for snaffle bridles that were far superior in quality. The edges of the components were rough and wore away the hair in places. I purchased padding to alleviate the problems. The straps the reins are attached to do not side freely, instead, after putting contact, they remain "tight" rather than releasing, defeating the concept of pressure and release. The crow piece is far to wide and impinges on the back of the ears. I bought this because I liked the bio thane one I had purchased used and was not wanting to worry about cracking in the Alaska winters we face. Overall. More ergonomic design, high quality leather and better finish on the edges are needed

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality I bought this bridle for my OTTB mare who had a tongue injury from the track, and always seemed uncomfortable with a bit. She is carrying her head much lower and generally seems more relaxed. It does take a bit of practice and patience when introducing this bridle to a horse who has been used to a bit, but by practicing on the ground and teaching her the aids, this bridle is very effective.
