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.

Crafted in rich Hazelnut leather with dark brown padding on the crown, noseband and browband.  Fancy stitch ¾” completely padded noseband and ½” padded brow band.  5/8” cheeks with hook stud ends and stainless steel hardware with roller buckle on caveson.  Complete with 5/8” raised fancy stitched laced reins.

Size: Cob, Full, O/S

Color: Brown  w/ Dark Brown Padding

    Harwich Padded Fancy Stitch Bridle by SmartPak is rated 4.7512 out of 5 by 205.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations! I bought this to use as a schooling bridle, but was incredibly impressed with the quality. Time will tell as to the durability, but I see no reason why it could not be used as a show bridle. Leather is so soft, beautiful color, and I imagine the padding is very comfy for my guy!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing bridle! I bought this a month ago as my new show bridle & am so happy that I did! This bridle finally fits just right & looks great on my mare. Right out of the box it is very supple & oiling darkens it right up no problem. As mentioned in other comments, the throat latch is a little long, but it definitely still fits - just on one of the top holes. I love it & I can't wait for show season!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of the box and into the ring Great job, Smartpak. Beautiful, soft leather. Very easy to assemble and ready for the hunter ring. Looks great with my CWD saddle. The Horse size fit my 16.2 TB with the O/S martingale. Lots of compliments from grooms and trainers. Looks and feels expensive.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Harwich Padded Fancy Stitch Bridle I just received the bridge two weeks ago. It is very nice though the brow band is a bit large for my horse. It is a rich brown that looks great on my horse Irish.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supple Leather for a Great Price! My 16.1 TB cross has a teeny noggin (!!) and his old horse-sized bridle was needing extra holes punched in it, so I decided that he needed a new one. But, you see, I'm super cheap. So, I researched my options and decided to try the Harwich Padded bridle in the cob size. It was at the right price point and I wanted something padded. Boy, was I surprised at the quality of the leather! Usually you "get what you pay for" in terms of leather quality, but this was soft and pliable right out of the bag! It's a lovely rich color and the stitching on the reins it a really nice, fancy touch. This penny-pincher is super happy!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bridle for the price! After many years doing dressage and out of the hunter/jumper world I recently decided to start back in on a recreational level so I needed a good quality bridle that wasn't extremely expensive. I saw one of these bridles in a silent auction and was impressed with the softness of the leather and the overall quality. I lost the bid at the auction, so when I got home I immediately got on the computer and ordered one. I've only had it about a month, but it's already supple after an initial oiling and a few uses! Color is nice and rich looking. Definitely nice enough for the show ring! My equine friends were very impressed with the quality for such a great price. Fits my horse (16 hand bay THxQH) well and looks great on him! Very happy with my purchase and looking forward to using it for many years to come.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice! Very supple and soft out of the package! Super pretty and a really nice color. I was afraid it would be to dark because I have a light/chestnut chocolate saddle... it's perfect! My only complaint was that putting it together was a bit more tricky with the special crown piece. Besides that it was awesome!

    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...
