Overview

Why We Love This

The Rambo® Micklem® Multibridle 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 Micklem Multibridle features a multipurpose design that allows it to be used as a traditional bridle, lunge cavesson, or as a bitless bridle. To convert to a bitless version, you can either attach the reins directly to the side rings or use the curb groove attachment included for a slightly stronger version. The 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. 

Imported.

Please note: In the US, the Rambo® Micklem® Multibridle is only sold with the curb groove attachment. Other advertisements may show an alternative bitless bridle strap that connects over the poll, however, this strap is not available for sale in the US or from SmartPak.

  • Ergonomic design based on the shape and anatomy of the horse's skull

Reviews
Rambo® Micklem® Multibridle is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bridle Have a better connection with my Tb mare using. She has become more supple and less "wiggly" and zero head tossing. LOVE that it can be adjusted to use as a bit less and I don't have to use a separate bridle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great product but coming incomplete In the promotion video, they talk about the Long Strep kit ot the long streps for the lunge cavesson, according to the video this comes included. but it really does not come in the packaging

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality First of all Smartpak is an awesome company with incredible customer service! The Micklem Multibridle is beautifully made with quality leather and hardware. I have an Icelandic mare who apparently has a more dainty head than I thought so the cob size didn't fit her. She and I reluctantly sent it back.
Date published: 2017-08-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bridle for my horse. My horse goes 100% better in a Micklem than a dropped nose bridle. I suspect it is because he can get more air since the nose band does not go so near to his nostrils. I also have the brown show Micklem but actually like the look of this one more on my big chestnut. I have treated both with Passier balsam conditioner which has made the leather fairly soft and pliable. No complaints

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What would make it great? I have a love-hate for this bridle. My Holsteiner has a thin muzzle and a wide forehead, so if Micklem allowed you to buy separate pieces I'd rate it 857574 stars!! I hole punched the cavesson and cut a LOT off, but the head stall was just right. Putting it on him the first time as a bit less, he was so cute and opened his mouth. He still rides willingly in a bit but I like to reward him sometimes. I'm giving this 5 stars just because I really love it but please give us a custom option!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!! Only had this for about a month and my boy loves it!!! Seems very comfortable in it and I love how it can become multiple things
Date published: 2016-10-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I bought this a while ago and love it! Since I'm not doing dressage anymore it was become a fine lunging caveson. I get tons of compliments on it and the leather stays really soft. Definitely saw a different in my horse while using it. Only wish I had gotten brown.
Date published: 2016-07-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable; well made headstall. I bought this 2 weeks ago. Large horse size to fit a 16.2 hand; large boned Friesian X ASB cross. The size fits him and the construction of the headstall was comfortable for him directly out of the package. I'm looking forward to see how it breaks in and the leather softens. My only complaint is minor - large horse = long neck and the rubber reins that came with it are too short. I'm using different reins.
Date published: 2016-04-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't know what I'd do without it! I bought my first one in 2013 for a fussy guy and fell in love. I now have 5 bridles in both colors and qualities, in 3 sizes. I use on all training horses for dressage and jumping. Horse is quieter and contact is consistent. Love the bridles but wish they were just a tad softer leather, takes some conditioning to soften. Would be nice if the black bridle which will most likely be used for dressage, not have rubber reins but traditional reins with leather stoppers.
Date published: 2016-03-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great concept but didn't fit my horse's head I tried the competition style bridle in a horse size before and it was too small to fit my horse, specifically the strap that fits under the jaw, so I had to return it. I thought perhaps the multibridle in large horse size would work, but it was too long so the strap didn't fit in the right place. Granted my horse is a fjord and they tend to have big, short heads but that being said, I have seen another fjord in this bridle but it was a mare and they tend to have smaller heads. I also thought the leather was a little stiff but probably would have broken in with some conditioner. I wanted this to work, so I could try my horse in this bridle bitless and I also liked the ability to lunge in it, but it just didn't work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great poll relief Has been great for my Andalusian with the very busy mouth.
Date published: 2015-12-30
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea, but does not fit all horses... We were really excited to try this on my daughter's fussy mare, but we ran into a problem with fitting it. Mare has large cheek which meant the upper cheek strap of the regular horse size bridle was too short. We also tried large horse size, but that meant that the lower nose strap was too big. Wish it had worked....
Date published: 2015-12-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A different horse! I have a mare who has always been very resistant to any contact. We have always struggled with tension and I could never get her to fully relax. From the moment I put this bridle on she was a different horse! Happy, relaxed, and willing to go into the contact. I am amazed at how much softer the connection is and she no longer fights with me. I wish I had tried it sooner! She has always been hard to fit for a bridle, she is between a cob and pony size. I bought the cob and it fit great except I had to put a horse size noseband on. I bought the black, and it did come with reins. A great product!
Date published: 2015-11-15
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks nice; didn't fit. I like the design of this bridle except that the diagonal piece connecting the cheek and nose pieces assumes certain dimensions of the horse's face and can't be adjusted. If that part doesn't fit right (like on my short-faced, large jowled horse), no adjustments or sizing up/down seem to help. I tried both cob and horse sizes on my 14.2hh Arabian. With the cob, the browband and jaw strap were too short, and the noseband tended to sit too low. The horse size fit slightly better, but I had similar problems with the short jaw strap and noseband where once I got one in the right place, the other would be wrong. If the jaw strap had been an inch or two longer it could've worked but my horse did not enjoy how tightly it fastened on the last hole. I'd be open to rebuying this bridle to try on a different horse in the future, but it just doesn't fit my current needs. As far as quality, the black bridle I ordered first was very stiff but the brown one I got when I exchanged sizes was much less so. For some reason the brown one also came with reins, which I didn't try. Bridle is easy to clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice bridle bought this bridle to fit a horse with prominent cheek bones. This bridle fits him but I had to make some adjustments. My guy has a big head and the bridle length is great but the nose band was to big even for my horse. Beautiful bridle
Date published: 2015-07-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Multibridle If your horse goes well in a flash, figure eight, or drop noseband, this may be great for you. For horses that have never had those types of nosebands, they may hate it. It was especially great for my idiopathic headshaker, and my current OTTB goes well in it, but he goes pretty much the same in a figure eight. It can rub the cheeks with some mullen mouth bits. The leather is mid-grade quality with good stitching and decent padding. I let the bridle soak in oil for a day, and it came out pretty nice. My favorite things about this bridle are the ergonomic design (although it won't work for every horse's head shape) and.. how few pieces there are to clean! I changed out the stock browband for a brass clincher, and use this set up as my XC bridle. Very happy with it, have had three Micklems for the last four years and all held up well, even got nicer with age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, lovee this bridle! I've been using the Multibridle for a few weeks now and it really does make a difference. I have a 15.2h fine headed anglo arab and the cob sized fit him well; He's stopped needing to itch his face, and it looks great.
Date published: 2015-05-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful fit tends to run small, so be sure to up I have a very sensitive Arabian, he loves this briddle. He is so soft in my hands, an foaming at the mouth. He has never been such a pleasure to ride!! Thanks many happy rides to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves this bridle! I love the way she relaxes into our lesson much faster than she does with a regular bridle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I got my Micklem bridle three weeks ago and a piece of the nose band already brook. The leather is a little stiff. I regret throwing the package back otherwise I would have ask for an exchange
Date published: 2015-02-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fitting Bridle I purchased this bridle for my young, Icelandic gelding. It fit him perfectly and he seemed very comfortable with this bridle. He can be hard to fit, but the standard horse size was perfect for him. The bridle is very well made and has excellent features. I would definitely recommend this bridle.
Date published: 2015-02-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A new way to look at things I have purchased both the Micklem multibridle and completion bridle. The multibridle is a better quality of leather than the competition bridle. The reins which came with the competition bridle are thick, rubber and not really useful for me. I tried this bridle because I have a horse who tilts his head slightly to the left. He was never fussy with this quirk and the degree of collection made no difference. We had determined that the cause was not his teeth or my hands and he checked out OK from a chiropractic stand point. From the first ride with this bridle the head tilt was gone and it has stayed gone. I was skeptical that simply a different style of bridle would solve this problem. To say the least, I was more than pleased. I would certainly consider this bridle as a possible solution to any bridling or head issues.
Date published: 2014-11-23
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't fit my horse I tried twice to adjust this bridle to my horse but could never get it quite right. In addition, my horse didn't seem to like it as he kept tossing his head when I put it on. I never did ride him with it on as it clearly wasn't going to work so I returned it. Looks nicely made.
Date published: 2014-11-01
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not big enough for warmbloods I have not been able to give this bridle a full try because it is not big enough for my warmblood. The leather is too stiff, so I don't know whether softening it might allow me to try it. And I don't know whether I can stretch the 'throat latch', although it is not really at that spot on the horse. Either way, I have to decide to alter it and keep it or send it back without giving it a chance. I don't know why they don't just make that strap a little longer.
Date published: 2014-10-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality I'm impressed with the quality as much as the functionality of this bridle. Only critique I have is that I wish the bit clips were brass instead of plastic.
Date published: 2014-09-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perhaps for a finer-boned horse This is a lovely piece of tack, well-made, nice leather, great concept, however it seems like it is for more lighter, fine boned horses. I can picture it fitting beautifully on an TB or Arab. On my 4-year old curly bashkir (with just a hint of warmblood ancestry), the noseband was in the wrong spot and was actually way too big, and the throat latch way too small. The bridle is nicely constructed for an ergonomic fit, but the angles were all wrong for my guy. Nice DVD by Mr. Micklem for fitting the bridle with and without the bit and as a cavesson. Kind of irritating that it didn't come with reins for the price though.
Date published: 2014-08-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fit issues The bridle did not fit my mare at all. She is an Azteca with a quarter type head and the jowel strap was far too short.
Date published: 2014-05-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Bridle for a small head! I've been using this bridle for a few weeks on my Arab. It fits him better than most cob size bridles. I love that there is so much less bridle on his face. It looks great on him and doesn't have extra straps and buckles that cover up too much of a smaller horses face. I've used the bitless version as well as using a bit. My horse goes great either way. I have also found that he seems happier with a bit using this bridle that with the other bridles I have. I'm so pleased with this purchase. Wish I had tried it sooner.
