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 Wide Noseband Hunter Bridle is our favorite choice for Hunter and Derby horses!

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 - without padding to show off your horse's features.
  • 5/8" cheek pieces with hook stud ends.
  • Hand beveled, rubbed and finished edges.
  • Stainless steel hardware and roller buckle on caveson, with extra keeper to prevent loose end.
  • Complete with premium 5/8" fancy stitched and raised laced reins.

    Wellfleet Monocrown Wide Noseband Hunter Bridle is rated 3.875 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compliments galore! We've had this bridle for about 2 weeks, and I've received a lot of compliments on it. It is well-made and the wide noseband looks makes it look like the more expensive brands. We have had to use darkening oil on it, however, to achieve the dark color of our other tack.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made--love it I was very pleased with the overall quality of this bridle, especially at a sensible price. It has much nicer quality leather than bridles I have tried that are more expensive. It takes oil very well, and darkens and softens nicely. There is no need to try to darken it--the old will do that for you. The monocrown design is wonderful, also much nicer than a more expensive monocrown bridle I tried. The stitching is nice and even. I highly recommend it!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from brow band runs big one additional comment to add to my previous reveiw, the browband is wierdly large. I have a 16.2 hand warmblood, who is farely big boned. The full size bridle fits everywhere fine, but the browband it large. I've never had a problem w/ browbands on him before, I have the pessoa wide noseband bridle in full size, and a Jimmy's bridle in full size and those brow bands fit him fine, I don't know why the brow band on this bridle is so big. It seems as I could have used a cob sized browband.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Bridle- but stitching turned pink When this bridle arrived and I opened it I was like, WOW!! it was beautiful!! I love the stitching details, and the raised noseband, however I wouldn't really call it "wide" its only 1" which to me is average. The wide noseband bridles from Jimmys's are 1 1/8", and some other brands are 1 1/4". I wish it was a little wider, but all an all its beautiful. I was dissapointed when I went to clean it for the first time. I only used regular saddle soap to give it a quick wipe down before I oiled it, and all the die came off on the sponge and died most of the stitching a pink color, some spots are worse than others, like the reins stitching is now completely pink and looks terrible- you can barely see the fancy stitching. I love the picture on the website where it has been oiled and the stitching stayed white- it looks beautiful, however my bridle does not look like that.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed in quality I was very disappointed in the quality of this bridle. It was a bright orange and when I tried to darken it, it turned black. It looks terrible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bridle I bought this bridle for my new warmblood. The new "wide" noseband is a perfect compliment to his larger head and many people have noticed the new style. The quality is very nice. It was quite light in color when I got it, but after a few oilings it darkened and softened nicely. I'm very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bridle! This monocrown wide noseband bridle is just what I have been looking for, and the price is great. It is beautiful and the leather is great quality and very soft. The sizing is accurate, O/S fits my big headed Warmblood. Photo is before and after oiling with Hydrophane Darkening Oil.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
