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'!).

    Harwich Padded Dressage Bridle by SmartPak is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 123.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bridle! I received it about 2-3 weeks ago and it is so soft and fit perfectly! (I got the Cob size for my little TB mare). Definitely highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bridle for the cost Soft leather that wasn't ridiculously stiff for the first few weeks. Well made fits great, not a fan of the reins but the bridle is great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I have several of these bridles and they are wonderful standards in tack room. Very affordable and complement finer heads well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Comfort My horse loves this new bridle. The old one was tight and heavy leather. She is a Dutch Warm blood and needs a little extra space at the brow band she got it with the new one. It is soft and lightweight, I am happier to know she is finally comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Bridle This bridle fits my horse perfectly! He looks so handsome in it. I really like that it isn't bulky and that the leather is soft. l think it looks more expensive than it was. Very easy to adjust as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bridle for reasonable price Needed/wanted a new bridle to match my new saddle. This was a great deal - also on sale. I love the mono-crown and the padded nose/crown/brow bands. I feel like it's more comfortable on my horse. Nice and soft right out of the bag. I'm still getting used to the rubber reins (tend to like leather/laced ones), but not a big deal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bridle Third time was a charm. The full size fits him. The leather is great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful bridle This is a very well made bridle that I would highly recomend. Sadly, I had to return mine because it didn't fit my horse. I would say that it runs a little big, so think of it more for a small horse/large cob. My horse is generally a cob....

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bridle for the price I bought this bridle for my new baby horse. I didn't want to spend much on him in case his needs change down the road. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality. Nice leather, fits well (better than the Plymouth elite I have for my other horse).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Find! Over all I thought this was yet another superb product from Smartpack! There are a few things which need improvement, but given the price point you can't bet it. The mono crown headstall was the selling piece for me. That was the reason why I bought the bridle. GREAT feature! You can't find the same bridles for starting less than $250. Some things that need improvement (and this is said with a grain of salt):* The leather is a bit stiff out of the package but give more wear and a good conditioning that should get better over time. *LOVE the webbed reins, but wish they were 100% leather...not a combination of leather and cloth.*My horse is between sizes. TB/Perch. Horse too small and oversize was a touch too big but I ended up keeping this size for his comfort. The flash attachment is ridiculously large. Must be sized for a Budweiser Clydesdale!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harwich Padded Dressage Bridle This is a beautiful bridle that's worth every penny. My mare likes that it's padded and very comfortable. The removable noseband allowed me to substitute a hackamore in its place. Leather is good quality, and the color is a gorgeous espresso.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and supple! Bought this bridle a couple of weeks ago and it's exactly what I needed. Fits beautifully. Reins are a little stiff, but that's just due to being new. Overall, quality is excellent!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple yet well- constructed This is a sturdy and well-made bridle The leather is clean and crisp. Fits well, especially for my thoroughbred who usually requires a smaller cob sized bridle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this bridle! I absolutely love this bridle. It's gorgeous, soft and supple right out of the box, and fits my pony so well. For the price, the quality is unbeatable. I'm so pleased with this purchase!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice padding on noseband and crown Bought this as a Christmas gift. Chose this bridle because of all the padding
    Date published: 2016-01-06
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Arabian-Friendly I'm torn writing this review, because I loved the bridle. For $130, the leather is of good quality and I love the padding and crown feature. All very, very nice. I want to keep it! But I can't.I have an Egyptian Arabian with very fine features, and we've tried all of the SmartPak-brand dressage bridles with no luck. Looks like we need to go with custom pieces. I ordered this in a cob size and we're at the top of every hole with a need to punch 2-3 more holes...just not willing to go there. So if your horse sounds like mine, I'd recommend you keep shopping for something more suited for the features of an Arab.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from throat latch in weird spot Bought this bridle and started to assemble and realized that the throat latch was where the buckle for the bit was...it was cut backwards.
    Date published: 2015-06-25
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hmm not bad! Padded nicely. I conditioned the bridle with some effax leather balm and it's super soft. Unfortunately, one of the cavesson keepers broke when I first adjusted it, but I think it's worth keeping anyway. The browband on this horse size (17") was way too big on my guy, so I'll have to buy the normal 15.5" separately. The other pieces seem to fit correctly. My first smartpak purchase! I'll be back for more :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wears Well I purchased this bridle at the retail store upstairs in the addict, at first I was going to order it online but then took a ride out there and was so happy I did! What a great find for 50% off!!I have had it for well over a year now and it looks great still and has worn nicely, I do wipe down my tack after every ride and this bridle along with the buckles has just gotten nicer with age. Very soft and suple. I love it so much I purchased a cob size yesterday! Upstairs in the addic again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bridle!!! We are very happy with the quality of this bridle and our horse seems to love it, too! The padding is very nice and it was soft right out of the bag! We ordered the COB size for our Arabian gelding and it fits great!
    Date published: 2015-04-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for price I got this bridle last week and have only ridden in it once. It was soft right out of the bag and the padding is really nice. The flash seems to run a bit large- might have to punch a hole in it, but otherwise the bridle fits great. The reins are good quality although mine did not come with the martingale stops pictured.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bridle EVER!! I LOVE this bridle!!! I have it for almost 2 years and it has held up perfectly! I use it daily and the only thing that has happened over the past 2 years is the cheek pieces has gotten a tiny bit stretched! The leather is unbelievably soft and supple unlike any other bridle I have ever tried. I HIGHLY recommend this bridle!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful bridle Really nice on my warmblood. My dressage trainer says it will her new bridle to recommend to clients.
    Date published: 2015-01-02
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some nice features, reasonable price I was underwhelmed by this bridle. The padding on the browband was barely there, I would call it "lined" rather than "padded". Padding was a bit cushier on the crown and noseband. The stitching was tight and even and the bridle fit my pretty typical Arab better than many. The width is fairly fine and will really look nice on a refined, pretty head (not that really wide look that can overwhelm some horses). The leather came out of the bag quite stiff but I would expect it would soften up and it looked as if it would wear well. For the price, it is nice but I think I will invest in a more expensive bridle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harwich Padded Dressage Bridle This is absolutely the best quality bridle for the money I ever owned! The leather is soft and supple, the padding on the nose and crown bands is perfect and having the wide, padded crown band under the more narrow piece of leather is much appreciated by my horse. I would highly recommend this bridle to any dressage rider.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and fit for the price! Beautiful bridles! I bought two cob sized for my Morgans and they fit beautifully! They are made in India so that might deter some people but I used leather cleaner and then a conditioner on them before using them and they are really beautiful! Another great Smartpak product!
