We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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'!).

Why We Love This

The Bridle with an Ergonomic Design

The Micklem Competition Bridle by Horseware Ireland is designed to fit the horse's skull and prevent uncomfortable pressure points. This unique shape makes this bridle the most comfortable and effective ever designed. Available in both black and dark havana (brown). Approved for FEI competition.

Favorite Features

  • Ergonomic design to fit the shape of the horse's skull
  • 5/8" Eco-friendly with rubber reins
  • Stainless steel buckles

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Design, but Cheap Leather Fits great and my horse loves it. I like the grippy reins as well. Only problem is the cheap leather. I clean and oil this bridle every week with high quality oil...it never seems to soften. Would have paid more for decent leather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bridle! I had never seen this bridle before and never had a flash on my gelding, so I wasn't sure how he would like this. He is a high-headed Arabian that loves to look at everything. He loved this bridle from the first ride - he is calm, his head is down and he is so relaxed in it. I have been using it for six weeks and won't switch back to anything else now. I used my own reins as I prefer leather reins, but the bridle leather is soft and lovely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bridle! I bought this a few weeks ago and already see a great difference in my mare. She more relaxed in the bridle and has stopped leaning left. The quality of the leather is nice. With the ability to return it as needed, why not give it a try?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT!! I bought this bridle about a month ago, I have never regretted it! I you are thinking about getting a drop noseband for your horse i would try this first instead. The leather is pretty nice, it holds up pretty good. I love how much padding it has!!The keepers for the bridle on the sides are sewed in which i personally really like! I LOVE the reins i would say that they are comparable to the Nunn Finer Soft Grip Reins, great for all phases of eventing!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great bridle Bought this for my gal to fit her Arabian gelding that I had just purchased for her. She had a hard time finding a bridle that would fit him, and she really liked this one. It fit and worked very well for him. I would highly recommend it
