Stubben Freedom Bridle is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs WAY big - otherwise gorgeous bridle Bought almost two weeks ago in full size, and everything is on the last/smallest hole - for a 17hh warmblood. Beautifully made, but does not run true to size. Need to now locate a cob size as Smartpak does not carry it. *Would only like Smartpak to contact me about review if Smartpak can get me a cob size*

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for horses with poll damage This bridle was gifted to me. I wish I could afford another. I've been using it on a horse who has a constant heads shaking problem. I tried all the fly control/bonnets/masks. I even tried a Micklem. He's had massage. He still shook his head. This bridle made it stop immediately. It was then I realized that the reason he was shaking was because of his poll. He cracked his head in the trailer a few years back and I'm sure it did some damage. This bridle restored my horse. He is finally comfortable. I cannot recommend this bridle highly enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the cost. I found out about this bridle in an online OTTB group. I figured it was worth a shot as my guy has always been spooky in corners and tends to shake his head after about twenty minutes into every ride. With the cutback hinged cheek pieces his vision field is greatly improved and after only three rides in the new bridle, he no longer jumps when we get to corners in the arena. I have also noticed that he is enjoying the free movement of his ears, which is made possible by the further back position of the crown piece. As you know if you’ve researched this bridle, there is a cutout where the portion of the crown piece that sits directly over the poll, which prevents any poll pressure. My guy wears a crib collar 24-7 so I think taking a break from poll pressure during rides is a plus. Overall though my favorite feature is the further back cheek pieces - I also love that I can see more of his face when we ride in addition to him having better peripheral vision. Fitting this bridle took a few looks at various YouTube videos but it wasn’t as tricky as it might look. My horse has a small head and the horse size fit him fine - I didn’t find that it runs large like some of the reviews said. He is pretty much mid hole for every strap. With the cost of the bridle I had no problem returning it if it wasn’t one hundred percent worth it; after only a few rides in, the lack of spooking and head shaking clearly means it’s working as it should. Otherwise I would have had it back in the mail by now. :) I don’t write many reviews but I felt my experience was worthwhile to post because I only found so many reviews about this bridle when I was considering it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Believe the hype I have an extremely hot OTTB and my friend let me borrow her Freedom bridle to try before I bought one. My horse is known for head tossing while tacking up, while riding, rubbing his face during rides, spooking, spinning, etc. I've had multiple people mention they would never ride him and think I'm maybe crazy to ride him.... anyway, tacking up is Quiet now. Maybe he pulls away to look at something but there is no flinging his head around. He's better under saddle, only stops to run 1 or 2 times during a ride, and is not immediately trying to rub on me as soon as I remove his bridle. There is rarely any spooking and spinning. Is he perfect? NO. Is he more comfortable and happy? YES. It fits unlike a traditional bridle so I suggest you YouTube some videos. The ebony color s a nice Havana brown - no idea why they call it ebony. I can't believe I spent the money but the hype is true and my horse told me so! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved the problem This bridle made such a difference with my young TB. She's very sensitive and aware and the design allowed for an unobstructed view as the straps are designed away from the eyes. She would spook continually in corners during bending work, and on our very first ride in this bridle she was entirely changed and the spooks stopped. Expensive but worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Equine Physiotherapist Approved!!! This bridle may look goofy, but with horses that have poll sensitivity, TMJ issues, not wanting to have a soft mouth, hyoid problems, trust issues about accepting contact due to previous pain... This bridle is AMAZING. I seriously love it. I only wish I could get more than one for myself (I event and need different colors for my tack sets)
