Why We Love This

The Rambo® Micklem® Competition Bridle is ergonomically designed from the inside out with your horse’s comfort in mind. Based on the shape and anatomy of the skull itself, this one-of-a-kind bridle is carefully crafted to avoid pressure on sensitive areas of your horse’s head such as the facial nerves, projected cheekbones, or the upper jaw molars. The noseband is specifically placed and shaped to avoid interfering with the horse’s breathing. Additionally, the wide, contoured crown alleviates pressure on the noseband while padding on the crown, browband, and noseband add to your horse’s comfort. Plus, the soft leather is vegetable-tanned and environmentally friendly.

The competition bridle features hand-finished leather that will look great in the show ring. Two sets of different sized pairs of bit straps are included to ensure an ideal fit. Additionally, tongue protection clips are included which can be used to lift the bit in the horse’s mouth to prevent undue or abrupt pressure from being applied to the bars or the tongue. This can be especially helpful when starting a young horse or for inexperienced riders. Finally, it even comes complete with rubber reins so you have everything you need to get started.

This bridle is approved for FEI competition.

Imported.

Please note: Horseware does not recommend using this bridle as a bitless bridle. If you’re looking for a Micklem bridle that can be converted into a bitless bridle, check out the Rambo Micklem Multibridle

    Rambo® Micklem® Competition Bridle is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 338.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse is so much better in the contact! Love this bridle for my new horse. He’s so much better in the contact and easy to get on the bit vs in a regular snaffle bridle. So happy I tried him in this!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and functional! We tried this bridle on my new horse before I bought it, so we knew it would fit him well. I was very surprised, however, at the wonderful quality and feel of the leather. We are very happy with it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Micklem bridles are a great fit for your horse My horse is so happy in the Micklem bridle. SmartPak was easy to order from and promptly sent it to me!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheaply made I had a micklem bridle for my mare a couple years back, unfortunately it was the wrong size so I ordered a new one now that we'll be showing (and she seemed to like the one before) and the leather quality is.. gross. It's cheap. And for a $200 bridle I'd expect better. I meticulously oiled and conditioned it and it still was cracking and felt cheap and stiff. There was glue left leaked out of the layers all over the place. It's definitely not the same quality as the one I bought years back. Sad.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not right for my horse I was very excited to try this bridle on my sensitive-faced WB after reading so many great reviews. Sadly he just didn't like the flash no matter how loose I secured it. I was also disappointed in the color... I ordered the Dark Havana, but it was a very odd grey-brown. It was also pretty stiff. Both of those may have been resolved with a good oiling, but since I decided to return it due to fit I didn't want to attempt to alter the color. I'm sure this is great for some horses, just didn't work for my guy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bridle. I bought this product as a Christmas gift for my daughter and she loves it.
    Date published: 2021-01-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horses love it and so do I I agree with the reviewer who said it looks great in all 3 phases of eventing. Most importantly, all three horses I tried it with went more quietly and comfortably in it. I also like the rubber reins that came with it. My only suggestion would be to make the strap that goes behind the cheeks longer or removable with the option to swap for a longer one. It had to be on the last hole for an Arabian mare and for my amazing small Haffie even though all other sizing in the bridle worked well for them.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh- not in love with this bridle Rambo is a brand I expect quality from- well this leather isn't high quality and the overall fit of this bridle is just ok. I really wanted to love this bridle as I do most if not all my other Rambo items, but I'm not sold on the fit and as stated the leather quality for the price. Maybe I expected too much from Horseware/Rambo :(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value I waited two years to buy this for my big horse. It fits him perfectly, and is good quality.
