Why We Love This

This elegant "Ivy" bridle by Kavalkade has all the features of an ergonomic bridle for a comfortable fit for the horse. The English noseband with flash is fixed to the head piece on both sides which reduces pressure on the horse's poll. The noseband is softly padded with a special curved cut to keep the cheek bone clear. The extra wide anatomically shaped and softly padded crown piece allows for extra comfort and freedom for the horse's ears. The browband is curved and the contrast stitching and decorative embroidery give this bridle a very elegant look. Comes complete with rubber reins.
Favorite Features

• Fully ergonomic bridle
• Luxurious soft padding throughout
• Extra wide padded crown
• Elegant stitching and embroidery
• The noseband has a curved cut to keep horse's cheekbones clear

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.

    Kavalkade Ergonomic Ivy Bridle is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay fit, horrid smell I am returning this bridle as it doesn't quite fit around the nose, the noseband doesn't want to flatten down on the horse's face and is a bit too big, but more than anything, I dislike the smell of it. However the leather was treated, the smell stays on your hands. It's not a nice leather smell, very much a chemical smell.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love that this bridle is ergonomic and affordable! I bought this for my sensitive, reactive 13.2hh Haflinger mare when I started riding her in a bit (instead of a hack) to refine some of her training, as I figured it couldn't hurt to get a bridle that's ergonomic. I removed the flash, since my mare doesn't need it. The bridle is really attractive and the leather feels nice. The stitching is a nice detail. My instructor even complimented me on the bridle and asked where I got it. And my mare seems to like it. That being said, sizing is a little weird. My mare's head is usually sized right between cob and horse. I got the cob, and the noseband fits fine, the throatlatch is nearly too small, the rest is nearly too large. But it does work for us. Only thing I don't like is that the padded noseband pushes out at the sides. I suppose that it will soften eventually with use and start to lie flat. Overall, I think this is a nice bridle for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful quality and design I like everything about the Kavalkade Ergonomic Ivy bridle....the quality of the leather is excellent and the white ivy stitching compliments my grey horse ...but, more importantly, the functional design gives my horse more comfort than a traditional bridle: the wide, well padded headstall reduces poll pressure and is cut back from the base of the ear, both the shaped crank noseband and the brow band are well padded also and the fit my horse's cob size head perfectly and the rubber webbed reins give a solid feel. It is a lovely, comfortable bridle for my young horse at a VERY reasonable price!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not fit The cob bridle was too big for my large pony and had to be returned. Otherwise, pretty bridle. Leather somewhat stiff as expected based on price and other reviews.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensitive OTTB loves it! I can’t say enough about this bridle! My horse has a sensitive face and finally found relief in the Micklem bridle. My trainer however recommended going back to a flash. The nose and of the Ivy looks very similar to the Micklem so I gave this bridle a try, and he goes even better in this than the Micklem! Had my 2ndcride in it today and we had one of our best rides. For the price, the leather is decent. Love the stitching as well. My 16h ottb usually goes in a cob...but it was out of stock so in my desperate attempts, I got a full. He’s on the shortest holes, but it fits it great. Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the design and padding I bought this bridle for my OTTB. The padding is very soft and comfortable for her, and I love the look of it. I’ve been getting lots of compliments on how pretty the bridle is. Especially for the price, this bridle excellent.
    Date published: 2018-04-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value This bridle is very high quality, especially for the price! Nicely padded and good quality leather. Fits my 16'3 TB pretty well although the throat latch could be a bit longer...I'm on the last hole. I bought the bridle cause my horse seemed to object to normal bridles with no padding and doesn't like flashes. This one seems to make him comfortable and the flash is removable.
