As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This 

When only the best will do. Built for the competitive rider, the Wellfleet Monocrown Figure 8 Bridle is suitable for the show ring and durable enough for everyday use.

Wellfleet Monocrown Figure 8 Bridle is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful but runs big I wanted to try a more expensive figure 8 so I could have a "show" bridle and an "everyday" bridle. I currently have the HDR monocrown figure 8 and it's going strong 5 years later. At only $90 that's hard to beat. The Wellfleet is really pretty but I just didn't love it enough to spend 3x as much as my HDR. I also really don't like fancy stitching but I thought I would see what it looked like - the stitching is actually really pretty and subtle.It also runs a little big - and if you tighten the noseband to the top couple of holes, you'll have a bunch of extra leather hanging down over the rings, which I thought looked sloppy. The leather was really pretty and supple out of the bag. It's a lovely bridle, just not for me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love everything but the reins I bought this bridle a few weeks ago because of a friend's recommendation. For the price, the quality of the leather is great and I love that the figure-8 does not have fleece and has fancy stitching. My biggest complaint is the reins. Any figure-8 bridle reins should come with leather rein stoppers on them. I purchased the rubber ones from Smartpak and they just look awful on these reins. Additionally, the rubber portion of these reins is very cheap. They are the tiny grips that just eat away at my horses mane when it makes contact. My friend who purchased the bridle a few years ago had reins with larger grip circles (not sure the technical term), which is MUCH more preferable. From reading other reviews, I'm concerned these reins will start to fall apart in a short period of time, or I will be so fed up with them that I'll have to replace them, in which case I should have bought a more expensive bridle rather than trying to save money with this one.I agree with other reviews that this bridle runs large.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from reins are terrible and fall apart I bought this product about a year and half ago and about 6 months into using using the reins the rubber grippers started wearing down (I only ride in this bridle 2 times a week as I alternate bridles). Currently, the reins have completely worn down on not only where I hold the reins but more towards the top. They have also becoming sticky and gooey. I called Smartpak a few months ago and the person I spoke to was not very nice to me after my complaint and asking Smartpak to replace the reins. She basically told me, that there is no warranty on this bridle or reins and she would be more than happy to sell me another pair of reins. I was not happy about the customer service (this is the first time I have ever had any type of terrible service with Smartpak). The head stall is fine and i do like this part about the bridle, but the reins are junk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality! I've been searching for a nice figure-8 bridle for awhile and am so glad I waited to buy the Wellfleet! The leather is soft and supple, and my horse loves it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, if it fits I got this because I thought that my previous bridle would be too big for my new horse. Bought a Cob on the recommendation of someone at my barn who had bought a horse size only to find it was too big for her horse, who is bigger than my 16 hh TB. It seemed to fit pretty well, but it rubbed her hair out! It was well-oiled, so it's not as if it was so dry it was chafing her, but it rubbed the hair out behind her ears, her browband, and on the sides of her face. At first I thought I just wasn't currying her face enough, but I put my other bridle on and all rubs went away. My barnmate didn't have this experience.... It is well made, good quality leather, and looks very nice. If it didn't rub my horse, I'd be thrilled with it.
