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 

Wellfleet Monocrown Hunter Bridle is a traditional and classic choice!

Wellfleet Bridlework represents the combination of the finest vegetable tanned North American bridle leather available and expert craftsmanship. Designed to alleviate pressure on the sensitive poll area, the redesigned genuine monocrown design allows only soft padding in contact with the horse’s poll. Extra fine stitching and supple rich leather finished with stainless steel hardware. Carefully crafted to our own specifications and available exclusively at SmartPak.

Favorite Features

  • Classic 1” noseband and ½” browband in a lush, supple leather with full padding.
  • 5/8" cheek pieces with hook stud ends.
  • Hand beveled, rubbed and finished edges.
  • Stainless steel hardware and roller buckle on caveson, for easy adjusting.  
  • Complete with premium 5/8" fancy stitched and raised laced reins.

    Wellfleet Monocrown Hunter Bridle is rated 4.125 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Excessive Red Dye I wanted to love this bridle but I cannot get it to stop leaking red dye. I figured the first and second time cleaning it would get rid of any excess dye but it seems like it just never runs out! I was very hesitant to put this on my grey horse so I decided to return. I think I received a defective one, as no one else at my barn with this bridle has had this problem. It's a beautiful bridle otherwise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and Beautiful This bridle is a dream bridle. From the 1" nose band to the mono crown to the raised fancy-stitched reins. It's everything I've ever wanted in a bridle. It looks amazing on my chestnut quarter horse gelding and I know he loves it too. He rides in comfort and I ride in style. I decided to keep the originally coloring since it matched my saddle and I prefer it this way over the darker version. I like the darker padding and the lighter bridle. I got a Cob size for my 15-15.1hh quarter horse. It's on the shorter size with the cheek pieces and such but fits him beautifully around the nose band and throat latch. The reins are stiff (not too hard but not too soft) but comfortable at the same time. I like it because I have that feeling of security that my reins won't slip from my hands of he decids to do something bad or bolt. Overal very beautiful and I am sooooo happy smartpak could supply me and others with my dream bridle at such a low price!!! (Compared to other brands for the same features)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from hope this bridle is better than the previous model I hope this bridle has better durability than its previous model, the Wellfleet Raised Fancy Stitch Bridle. I first bought this bridle in 2010. In 2012, the noseband strap broke (the leather disintegrated). I then bought another of the same Wellfleet bridle to replace it. In 2014, the braiding of the reins broke and now last month the noseband strap is quickly disintegrating again, despite regular tack care.Smartpak's customer service has always responded really well to my issues along the years, but I am disappointed that my Wellfleet bridle broke on three separate occasions over 5 years. I would recommend this product as a show bridle that is not used regularly (I have always ridden 3-4 times a week in mine) because it nonetheless features beautiful, supple leather.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bridle! Not So Good Reins. I love the bridle. The bridle has nice soft leather, so it didn't require a break-in period. People around the barn have been admiring my horse's new bridle. The quality and suppleness of the bridle, and the stitching is what sells this bridle. I give it four stars, however, because I really dislike the reins. They are stiff and the two-toned lacing doesn't look good and contributes to the stiffness problem. If it came with better reins, I would give it five stars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft and Pretty I recently got this bridle because I wanted to upgrade to a prettier one for shows. I love the softness of the leather and the padding and fancy stitching is nice. It oiled to a slightly darker color than I wanted but a few hours in the sun lightened it back up. My only complaint is that the braids on the reins did not take oil well and stayed kind of orange/red while the rest of the reins got dark brown. It seems like the braids are made from a different leather or have some kind of coating on them. Luckily, SmartPak's great customer service allowed to be send them back for a replacement pair, which I have not yet received. Overall, this is a very pretty bridle and I am pleased with my purchase.
