    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Get what you pay for I bought this bride at the beginning of summer and by the end it was trashed. it was nice when i first got it and until the leather started to fall apart. i got the warmblood size and it was to large for my warmblood so i ended up having to punch more holes. also the crown piece didn't have any padding what so ever, his ears looked uncomfortable. But over all for the price, i am happy with it. But on to better things.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bridle for the price The quality and leather on this bridle is not going to be the same as a $300 piece of tack but it is much nicer than what you might find at a local tack shop for the same price, IMO. I was able to use this bridle immediately without soaking/oiling and it's very soft and pliable.I've used it for a few weeks now on a horse who sweats A LOT when he works and it hasn't worn or changed a bit. I did swap out for my own custom browband but I'm a big fan of this bridle. Affordable, nice enough for schooling or local shows and seems to be of great quality!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bridle for the price. We just got our first horse and needed a basic bridle that would hold up for schooling and be able to go into the show ring. This is the one. I found it very soft and supple out of the box. The reins needed a little time to break in, but that happened within a few weeks. I did not spend a lot of time conditioning the leather, and it still broke in quickly. I bought a cob size for my 14.3 horse, and it fit him pretty well without having to add holes. For the money this was a great choice for us, and it will transfer to the show ring no problem.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for... Bought this bridle maybe two weeks ago for a new pony I recently bought and have used it less than 5 times and the leather (if that's what you want to call it) is already peeling. Wish I would have just went to a more expensive bridle that would not have fallen apart after the first couple of uses even if I did just buy it to be a schooling bridle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bridle! I haven't had the chance to ride Remington in this bridle yet but the other day I did try it on him. It fit great and I think he looked pretty awesome in it too. As soon as I took this bridle out of the box I noticed how soft the leather was; it feels a lot more expensive than it is! The stitching on it looks really nice as well and the padding is sure a bonus. I'll be using this bridle for schooling and small shows and think it'll work great!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sharp looking I got this as an extra bridle for hacking and lessons, but it is very nice. Good leather, and looks nice and comfortable. I haven't used it for that long, so I'm not sure about durability.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Schooling Bridle This bridle is absolutely beautiful and the leather comes out of the bag already supple. I still spent several days oiling the leather before using it, so I was a bit disappointed that after just one ride, in a few spots the darker outer leather started to peel away showing the light color underneath. The spots haven't gone away with more oil either.This bridle's still a great value and looks lovely with the fancy stitching and padding, but I would only use it for schooling or local shows.It also runs a bit large: I got a Full, but for every horse I've used it with so far, it's on the highest cheekpiece holes and almost on the tightest for noseband and throatlatch. And I ride horses with pretty chunky heads.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from soft leather! I was looking for something to fit a horse I would only have a couple of months. Super small head on this little guy. Was pleasantly surprised when this came in. The leather was pretty soft and stitched as well. It is much better quality than I expected for the price point. I would order this again as an every day working bridle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Quality for the Price Range I was looking for a lower cost bridle for my new yearling (baby's first bridle!), and jumped on this one during a sale. I was looking for something knowing he would soon outgrow it. I am so impressed with the quality of this bridle. The leather starts out stiff, but easily softens with a little work and oil. It also looks fantastic - classic hunter bridle. I'm a little cautious about the long-term wear along the edges, but have not had it long enough to comment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love I am a rider on a budget and was looking to replace a bridle I had for years. I purchased a very inexpensive one from another website and was horrified at the quality. Lesson learned, no more $30 bridles and went on a search for something nicer but still under $100. I decided on this bridle for several reason. Firstly, I have had nothing but pleasant experience with Smartpak so far. Secondly, I am much more comfortable spending the money knowing I can ship it back for free if it doesn't fit. Thirdly, it was under $100. After reading the reviews I purchased and couldn't be happier. I wore it for the 1st time in my lesson yesterday and my trainer couldn't stop complimenting it. It look fantastic on my chestnut thoroughbred and looks good with my other tack as well. Thank you Smartpak for making such a soft, supple, good looking, affordable bridle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the price Bought this for my kids' pony, as his old bridle was nasty. I really didn't want to spend much, as they only ride for fun. This is perfect. It's soft, not stiff. Perfect for the price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shows wear quickly. When I first received this bridle, I was ecstatic. The leather was supple, the padding soft. The stitching was lovely and just an overall great bridle.After five months, however, the dye began wearing off. For me, it happened along the noseband. For my friend (who bought the bridle same time as I did) it happened on her reins. The wear on her reins was much worse than the rubbing on my noseband. This doesn't affect the softness or fit of the leather but is just an aesthetic issue. Great for schooling; not show.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very soft leather, very well constructed! I found the perfect bridle to spoil my OTTB with. It is extremely soft, supple and doesn't forsake the quality. Very well made, expensive looking bridle. I've seen $200 + bridles of similar quality, and this one is less than half the price. Very happy with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price for nice bridle Bought this bridle as a show bridle for a pony. Very nice leather, nice details at a great price. Had to exchange the pony size for a cob size for a medium pony but the exchange was extremely easy. A friend saw it and immediately ordered one for herself! I used to be a customer service supervisor so my standards are high and I give Smart Pak an A+ for customer service!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Get the Harwich I was initially impressed with this bridle's appearance for the price point it's at. I've had a few specific issues that keep me from recommending it, though. First off, the reins have needed a LOT of oil to get soft enough to reasonably ride in, and even then, they were pretty stiff the first couple of rides. Second, there's a shiny veneer on the leather that apparently scratches off pretty easily. My horse rubbed against a fence his first time wearing it (totally my fault, but he does it all the time and my other cheap bridle cleans up fine after with a bit of conditioner.) It now has a permanent light mark where the shiny finish scratched off that won't go away with oil. Third, the sizing is weird. Cob size is way too small in the noseband, but the horse size has really long cheek pieces that make the top hole adjustment just barely small enough to work with certain bits.I will say that it's very pretty and has design details I expect of a more expensive bridle. But if I could do it again, I would just spend the extra $50 and get a second Harwich.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BRIDLE !!! I bought this bridle after doing a lot of looking - for a nice bridle without spending a fortune. The review on it were all good so I took the chance - being fairly new to buying leather goods site and touch not done! I was surprised at just how nice this bridle is!!!! The leather is soft on arrival and once i oiled it it looks and feels amazing. So much bridle for the money - highly recommend this.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty pleased Got this for the new horse with a petite little face. A very nice quality bridle for the price, but fits a little funny - the noseband sat so high on her face that I had to punch 2 more holes to get it to the appropriate level, but it is the right length to be tight enough when adjusted. The browband is a little snug as well but everything else is perfect. Can't speak to the quality of the reins as I am using a different set. The stitching and padding on everything is lovely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, supper pretty I bought this a few weeks ago after using the one my trainer had for her horse. I love it! It's supple right out of the box, and the leather is really good quality. Also I was very pleased that it came with reins, as a lot of bridles do not. Overall I was very impressed with this product. The only thing which I don't love is that it doesn't have a mono-crown piece. Still great bargain especially of this price. Definitely recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bridle for a great price I was looking for a relatively inexpensive bridle, so I bought this one because of all the good reviews. It's great bridle, and the leather is expensive looking. The reins took some time to break in and required a lot of oil, but they are very nice. The only thing I don't like is on the noseband the keepers are fixed, so if you need to tighten it, the leather piece just sticks out.
