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'!).

    Plymouth Dressage Bridle by SmartPak is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 240.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful! This bridle is so great! Such soft leather and so comfortable on my horse!
    Date published: 2016-10-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this bridle because I needed one to match my new dressage saddle. It is great for the price! The leather is soft right out of the package and my boy seems happy in it. My only complaint is that the keeper on the noseband doesn't adjust, so the excess hangs down. But overall, this is a great purchase if you need a good schooling dressage bridle!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tight in the browband I'm very glad I read the previous reviews. My 15.2 paint has a very refined head and usually fits somewhere between cob and full sizes. Usually I go with the cob size for him, but I saw a lot of the reviews mentioned the browband was a bit snug so I opted for full size this time. The browband is definitely on the small side - it fits him perfectly, even though we're on the smallest hole for the cheek pieces. The noseband is a little on the small side as well, but not unusable. I feel like the cob size probably would have adjusted better, but the browband and noseband would have been too snug. The bridle itself is beautiful, though. Very soft leather, easy to buckle and unbuckle, and the noseband and browband have nice padding on them - I didn't realize from the photos and description that they were padded. Very happy with my purchase, would buy again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft, supple leather I bought this bridle a month ago and was very pleasantly surprised at the quality and the feel of the leather. I was able to use it right out of the bag and it fits my horse well. I hope they keep this bridle at this price point for a long time and I find the need to purchase another!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality but comes with Pony Reins I bought this bridle for my 3/4 Arabian Mare in a cob size. It fits her beautifully, the leather is a nice an supple and you can tell it is well made. For the price I couldn't ask for better. However my mare is 15 hands, she has a small head and a long neck, it came with pony reins. If she stretches even a little bit, the reins are on the buckle. However this is a common issue when you own an Arabian, someday they will make cob/arab sized headsets AND reins!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice bridle for the price This bridle is a great, everyday piece of tack, the leather starts out supple and soft enough to use immediately. The size I ordered was too small (new horse right between cob and horse so always guessing, no fault of Smartpak) and returning was a breeze. Already owned a larger size so am still using this bridle everyday and very happy with it. Love SmartPak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Quality - Very Impressed! I bought this for my youngster as an every day bridle starting under saddle - the quality is incredible. The leather was soft and supple coming out of the box, it is a bridle made of substance, and I am very impressed! The price is more than affordable, and the value is astounding. I would highly recommend this product to future shoppers! I will be buying a second for my new mare!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quality but not for my horse Check the photo closely. You'll see the buckles are against the cheeks if the horse. Makes for clean looking lines, however, would rub the horse raw if worn for any amount of time. It was returned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good bridle I got this inexpensive bridle for my filly, who is part draft, but very short. Fits her very well, and is nice and soft.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from gGeat quality bridle for the money. The leather is very soft for a brand new bridle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value By far this is the best bridle at this price. It is very high quality and looks very nice. I have noticed that the noseband in the cob size is a tiny bit short, but it fits on the last hole.
    Date published: 2016-06-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bridle for the price Nice leather was lightly oiled. Only reason I didn't give five stars was the slightly lower quality reins compared to the quality of headstall. The reins will work just fine but they are rough enough to definitely require gloves each ride

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bridle Very nice quality. Was just too big for my thoroughbreds tiny head!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Bridle I bought to show at one dressage show just to see how my new mount would do at a show. Nice bridle, I did buy the cob size and fits nice on my NSH who is about 15.2. The brow band is a bit small but other than that its a really nice work bridle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous value I am a new dressage rider, transitioning after being a hunter/jumper rider for 10+ yrs. I purchased this because I have the hunter Plymouth elite fancy stitched bridle and have been happy with it. I also found it difficult to find budget friendly options at local tack stores. I am beyond thrilled with this bridle! If I did not see the price, I would have easily assumed this was $100+. The leather is super soft and does not even need oiled out of the box. Plus with smart perks, you get 10% off and free shipping!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Like it... This had great reviews and I guess I'm overly concerned but it seems tight on his poll, although my trainer's bridle fits exactly the same. I want to exchange for the (I guess it's a newer style) bridle with the caveson integrated into the crownpiece, and is padded. It does fit him, though, and he goes in it just fine. And the crownpiece seems wide to me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I have an OTTB and we usually compete in hunters, but my barn was having a home schooling dressage show and I thought it would be fun for us to do a little intro A test. Bridle was super soft and flexible right out of the bag. He's only worn it a couple of times but it is super great quality and I'm sure it'll hold up!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bridle This bridle doesn't seem to be the greatest of qualities, but is nice enough to show in. The cob size seems to run a bit small in the noseband circumference compared to the many other cob sized bridles I own.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, wonderful bridle I bought this as a schooling bridle but it is really good looking and so am showing in it also

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice bridle I bought this dressage bridle for my mare as we are getting into dressage. She has a large head that usually is hard to fit, but the horse size fit perfectly. The leather wasn't stiff upon arrival, it was nice and supple. The bridle isn't too thick either, which is what I was worried about. For the price, this is a very nice bridle

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very decent bridle Bought two---one for a pony and one for a horse. Leather is way more supple for the economical price than I expected. Appearance is quite good. Am sure we will have these for a good long time.
    Date published: 2016-03-10
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent for the price I purchased a cob size. The noseband needs to be worked to make it more flexible. I wound up taking it off for now as i'm just using it for training purposes and keeping it rolled and conditioning it to make in more pliable. Surprisingly, i can only use the last hole on the noseband as well and my mare has quite a dainty face and is only 13.2, so maybe the noseband is a bit short.But for the price, not bad. Easy to adjust buckles, etc. for a new bridle. Will work just fine for training purposes.You probably won't get a better quality bridle in that price range.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply but Classy I bought this bridle about a month ago and I love it. The leather is nice a supple but also great quality. It looks super snazzy on my Arabian cross!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comparable to much more $$$ bridles! First of all, I love Smartpak, and knowing they would happily accept a return I took a chance on this bridle. My hunter schooling bridle is a Vespucci, my show bridle is a smartpak Wellfleet, and I ride in a custom CWD, so I'm a bit picky with my tack. I'd rather save up and get exactly what I want than settle for less. Well, we recently decided to take some dressage lessons (we do hunters) and I wanted a nice bridle but didn't want to sink a bunch of $ into it. I figured I'd give this bridle a chance, based on the positive reviews. Well I was almost in total shock when I opened it- this bridle is wayyyy nicer than expected, and far nicer than anything under $100. The leather is so soft and beautiful, I was almost confused if they sent the wrong bridle, but sure enough it's stamped "Plymouth" on most pieces. If you're not sure if you want to risk buying a "cheap" bridle, do it! It's gorgeous! Smartpak rocks!!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sizing is off I swear mine was miss marked. I ordered a full size and its ginormous on every "normal sized" horse I put it on. It fits like an oversize. I'm afraid to get a cob because cob size is usually way too small on my horse. Unfortunately I bought this over a year ago so I'm stuck with it, but it's a beautiful bridle. The leather is really nice and seems really durable.
