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 Bridles are crafted in durable imported leather that’s vegetable tanned.  With an innovative padded crown design that allows the caveson strap to pass over the crown to alleviate pressure on the sensitive poll area.  Superb craftsmanship is reflected in the fine details and stainless steel hardware.  An excellent value. Available exclusively at SmartPak.

The Harwich Padded Dressage Browband by SmartPak is a padded ½” browband with Black with Black padding.

    Harwich Padded Dressage Browband by SmartPak is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Economical way to improve bridle fit I bought this for my new OTTB who wear a cob bridle, but needs a larger Browband. The full size Browband fit the bill, was easy to put onto my bridle and is a very close match to it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality My horse needs an oversize brown band, but horse size bridle parts. This brown band is between 17-17 1/2 inches. It's nice and soft. The only thing is that is not as wide as I would like for my large horse.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from thank goodness for oversize browbands I bought this for my percheron cross. He wears a horse size bridle, but always needs an oversize browband. Nice leather and goes with all the black bridles. This is much cheaper than buying a new bridle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality brow band Bought this to go with the Michelum bridle. I thought the one that came with bridly might not fit, so this was a back up[. It is very nice, but a little narrow for the Michelum bridle. Besides the one that came with bridle fits very well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice fit I love that the browband is the same style as the one that came with the bridle, so the change was asthetically invisible, but my horse is infinitely happier with room for his ears to wiggle better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Browband I specifically wanted a large plain browband for my draft cross's wide forehead. This one fit the bill. The leather is nice enough that unless you get close and/or feel it, you wouldn't know it wasn't the original Corbette browband. My horse takes regular horse size in every other part of the bridle but the browband. I will say the holes to slide the bridle through we quite snug.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Browband at an Affordable Price! I bought this browband for a new bridle I had purchased for my "hard to fit" TB gelding's head, everything fit except the browband - so I needed to find a quick replacement.Typically my horse wears a Full sized bridle with an Oversized browband. At first, I tried the Oversize - which was VERY Oversize #I believe I measured it between 17-17.5"#. SmartPak's easy returns made it super easy for me to return it, and try the Full size. The Full size fit great #can't recall exactly, but I know it was 16-16.5" in length#. It is a high quality browband made with soft leather and excellent craftsmanship. It has that great leathery smell that you know REAL leather beholds - unlike the cheap plasticky junk from India. I cannot comment on the durability, but I feel it would last virtually forever #never known a horse to break a browband#! The price is excellent and this browband is so well worth it. I don't feel you could be disappointed, unless of course it didn't fit your horse. I feel the only thing SmartPak could do better on this is list the size chart in the description so that nobody mis-orders like I did the first time. Thanks for offering such a great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not right for me I ordered this to replace one that was too small for my cobb sized horse. A cobb bridle fit but the browband was too tight. This band was too large and I exchanged it.
