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'!).

    Micklem Competition Bridle is rated 4.4918 out of 5 by 244.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Like Riding a Different Horse I did a lot of research prior to purchasing a Micklem. My horse typically evades most bits and bridles. He wears size horse, but the Micklem seems to run a bit larger. Size cob is a perfect fit. He is actually connected to the bit when I ride him in the Micklem. It was like riding a completely different horse. Some people claim the leather quality leaves little to be desired. I put oil on mine while I watched the tutorial on how to fit it to my horse. With one coat of conditioner it was nice and supple!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Horse LOVES this Bridle My horse has been unhappy with his bit/bridle I changed his bit and it helped but once I put him in this bridle he totally changed!!! I love the fit and look. It is terrific to get on and off and I love the simplicity of it. I will be trying it as a hackamore too.....

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bridle It's not magic and didn't solve any of my horse's problems but it's a nice bridle at a good price. It comes with reins I like, something that isn't true with most bridles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bridle! This is the second Miklem bridle l've bought. Still using the first as well. All 3 of my horses go well in the Miklem.Good quality leather, very adjustable! Easy directions for proper fit and use.Would and have recommended this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! I purchased this bridle for my OTTB because his previous trainer said he is more comfortable in this type of bridle than a regular one. I purchased the competition bridle instead of the regular Micklem, because I will want to eventually use it to show in. It has nice black leather and is very nicely padded. My horse seems very comfortable in it. I am not sure how much I love the rubber on the reins, though.
