Why We Love This

The Rambo® Micklem® Deluxe 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 deluxe competition bridle features classic styling with a wider, raised, fancy-stitched noseband and browband 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® Deluxe Competition Bridle is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well made beautifully constructed I have had several Micklem bridles and are still in use for over fiver years. They look just as good as they did when first purchased. The competition bridle takes it to a new level with the additional fancy stitching. Highly recommend these bridles by Rambo.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too stiff I love my regular competition micklem bridle but the fancy stitched one was too stiff; maybe because of all the extra padding?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Micklem deluxe competition bridle Horse loves it. He was having issues with the regular bridles. Nice soft leather.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay for jumping. Awful for dressage. I bought this bridle in the fall of 2017. At first I noticed no change in my horse but after a while, she started to dislike the bridle very much and would toss her head or just stop and back up from discomfort. Some of my close friends had the same result with their usually forward and excepting dressage horses. A few others noted this in their hunter horses. But for other horses that toss their head of fight oher bridles, the micklem worked amazingly. So just a fair warning, if your horse is not bad in the regular snaffle this bridle may not be for you.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for us I purchased this product about a month ago and tried it a few times on my horse. The idea of a more humane, comfortable bridle was very appealing to me. I have an OTTB who is well schooled but does not love to be on the bit and stay in self carriage, I thought perhaps the micklem would help. The quality of the leather is fine, but not what I’d expect from a bridle with a $200+ price tag. I dislike rubber reins, but the ones that came with it were fine. The way the bridle is packaged (zip tied flat to a piece of cardboard) makes it very difficult to get it to fit around a nose because the nose piece just wants to be flat. I ordered a large horse size for my 17.2hh gelding who normally wears a warmblood size bridle. I had a very difficult time getting it to fit. He has a very wide jaw and narrow nose on a long face. I could not get the nose and to be high enough and have the bit sit in the right place (bit straps too short). After messing around with the fit for several days and riding in it when the fit was right my horse decided he hated it. Luckily smartpak has an excellent return policy and it will be going back. I’m glad we tried this bridle but it was no miracle solution for us.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and exceptional customer service Bought this for my niece for Christmas, about a week after I bought it, it went on sale, called smart pak and they gave me store credit for the difference, no questions asked! Smart pak customer service is amazing!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bridle I am very happy with the bridle and my horse seems to like it. My only concern would be that the noseband is a little stiff and even after 2 weeks use does not fit exactly the nose. It should improve with time.
