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.

Traditional styling in a ½” rich brown leather.  5/8” cheek pieces with hook stud ends and roller buckle on caveson. Complete with 5/8” plain laced reins.

Size: Cob, Full, O/S

Color: Brown

    Harwich Plain Raised Bridle by SmartPak is rated 4.4762 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Schooling Bridle I bought this to use as an everyday schooling bridle and it is good for that purpose. The fit is good and the leather is good quality for this price point. Be aware that the "brown" color is just that, a dull ugly brown. I also think that the nose band is very thin. My guy does not have a big head, but it looks very skimpy on him. Overall, not beautiful, but a good serviceable bridle that has held up well for over a year now.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for... ... and this is a cheap bridle. This might be good for a pony. The cob size is a little smaller (shorter cheeks and smaller nose band) than other cob in other brands. This would work for an Arabian, but probably need to size up for a T-bred with a smaller head. I'd say the most irritating thing about the bridle is that the caveson buckle seems to catch hair and pinch, no matter how loose or tight it is, which makes this unsuitable for even schooling.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed I bought this as my schooling bridle and I must say the quality is very good for the price. I really like the padded crown. It does run large and the color is darker than the picture . I have oiled it a few times and it's breaking in very well. It seems like it will last a long time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As Lovely as Rumored; Runs Large NOTE: the color is darker than pictured. Oiled, it becomes a dark havana, which is what I wanted. If you are expecting a chestnut color, you will be disappointed. But it's every bit as supple and nice as everyone has said; the bit keepers were even supple.My thoroughbred was on the last hole for nearly everything on this bridle, though, so I had to return it for a cob size. Smartpak is so easy to work with in that regard, and the return shipping was free.Smartpak gave me the measurements to compare, min. to max.:Bit to bit: Cob 33.5" to 41.5", Full 37" to 46.5"Noseband: Cob 21-27", Full 22 - 28"Throatlatch: Cob 26-30", Full 26-31"Browband: Cob 15.5", Full 16.5"

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Value I just purchased this bridle for my OTTB. The quality is very good and the fit (Cob) was perfect for my thoroughbred. The price was also exceptional for the quality of the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harpsichord raised bridle Great bridle for the price. Brow band and nose and are on the thin side. Leather was soft. I oiled it once and it looks great. Only had it three weeks so I can't comment on its durability but I would definitely reccommend it. Great value!

    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...
