We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

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'!).

Wellfleet Monocrown Hunter Bridle is rated 4.0769 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, supple leather I ordered this bridle to match my horse's Wellfleet girth and martingale. I ordered a cob size for my 16h TB gelding. He has a very fine face, and it fits OK. The noseband is a little snug (can only put it on the 2nd hole) but it works absolutely fine. The bridle is gorgeous, and is a very light leather when it arrives. I chose not to oil it and only to condition it, as I didn't want it to darken too much as it wouldn't match my saddle otherwise. The padding is lush, and the slight cutout around the ears of the monocrown is lovely. The lacing on the reins is still quite orange, but I am hoping they will darken over time with use. All in all, I am thrilled with the bridle and would absolutely recommend it to anyone!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from While the headstall was very nice,...the reins were not. The lace part of the reins would not accept any oil and stayed a orange color while rest of the reins got very dark. I called Smartpak to return and they said I could not because they had been oiled and to continue to oil. After 9 days of oiling they continue to look the same. I called Smartpak again and this time the customer service agent said to return whole bridle. It has been a huge hassle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice but huge This is the third Wellfleet Monocrown bridle I've had since 2011. On the first, the noseband broke after 6 months of use and was replaced by Smartpak (GREAT customer service). The replacement had an issue with the noseband as well (one of the keepers was too small; I just replaced it with a hair tie) but it works fine as a schooling bridle. Then I got this one for my second horse as a schooling bridle. I'd tried my old one on her and it seemed to fit ok. What I've noticed though is that it runs very large. I got the cob size for my 16.0 Hano/TB, but he has a dainty head so I didn't think anything of it. The throatlatch is too long and can't be adjusted, and the reins were so long I had to change them to keep them from getting caught on my foot at the canter (yikes!) but it worked on him for a schooling bridle. This one was for my Dutch/TB mare with a more typey head. I still ordered the cob size for her but overall, it is way too large. She doesn't have a dainty head, and when I ordered it, I couldn't remember if I already had the cob size. The throatlatch on her was WAY too long, and as I said, I can't punch more holes in it to make it smaller. It's a good price and good quality, but the sizing is off in my experience. I wouldn't purchase again. I would recommend trying it, though because it's a nice bridle for a good price. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! This is a fabulous bridle for the price. It looks and feels like a much more expensive bridle. Right out of the package, the leather was soft, and it's so nicely padded. As others have mentioned, it's much lighter than pictured on the website, but it will darken up. In the picture I've attached, I used leather conditioner, not oil, and it's already darkened up some. The reins in the pic are not the ones the bridle comes with as I prefer rubber reins I'm very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very classy bridle Pretty bridle and the leather is very supple. It was too light so I oiled it and it darkened up nicely. I have only used it once but I really like it.
