Overview

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

Reviews
Rambo® Micklem® Competition Bridle is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 340.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features! So pleased with the Micklem bridle ....leather is of very good quality and soft. Hardware and stitching look up to the task of long wearing. But above all, it fits my horse's face better than any other snaffle bridle i have tried.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from instructions needed Bought for our large Welch pony--Had a really hard time trying to figure out how it should fit him. We had ordered both the pony and cob size. The cob was big in the brow but small under the jaw (he has a really nice jaw). Finally gave up and returned both. Maybe they are just not good for cute dished face of a Welsh pony? Some intructions or advice on fit might have helped

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not fit my QH I tried fitting both the horse and cob size on my in-between QH mare with no luck. With the horse size, the throat latch was JUST long enough but it was too long on her face and did not fit properly. With the cob size it fit everywhere else but I could not get the throat latch close enough to buckle. For reference she is typically a cob sized halter and in between cob/horse in bridles.

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.
