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 Bridlework represents the combination of the finest vegetable tanned American bridle leather available and expert craftsmanship.  Designed to alleviate pressure on the sensitive poll area, the innovative crown design allows the caveson strap to pass over the crown piece in an elegant discrete channel; only soft padding touches 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.

Elegant.  Sure to catch your eye with the perfect amount of sparkle in a Swarovski crystal browband. 

Luxuriously padded 1” noseband and ½” browband in a lush, supple leather.  Crank noseband and crown are also fully padded for comfort. 5/8" cheek pieces with hook stud ends. Hand beveled, rubbed and finished edges.  Stainless steel hardware and roller buckle on caveson.  Complete with premium 5/8" Anti-Slip rubberized web reins with leather stops.

Size: Cob, Full, O/S
Color: Black

Wellfleet bridles are about to get even better. We're updating the line to have a true monocrown, so we're clearing out the original styles to make room for the new ones. Look for the exciting new bridles in late summer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bridle worth the price I recieved this bridle as a gift over a month ago. I am really picky about padding and bridles and this bridle met all my requirements. It is lovely but somewhat stiff when it comes out of the package. It took several rides to truly break it in. It fits well though. My gelding is in between cob and full and the full worked for him. The crystals are nice but several were positioned funny so not all of them were shining when you looked at it straight on. The quality of the leather and padding is nice the reins were also good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Bridle Quality leather bridle with a little bling. It is true to size. Cleans up well after use. Great for schooling or show.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy With this Bridle This bridle looks great on my chestnut warmblood. I did have to exchange the browband for a new one as there was a problem with one of the crystals. Usually not a fan of these types of reins, but so far, I like them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wellfleet Crystal Dressage Bridle I LOVE this bridle. I have bought another brand that came highly recommended by my trainer but I think we both like this one better (and it was less expensive). I haven't had it for long but I'd just bet it's going to hold up and wear well. (I have another Wellfleet hunter-style raised bridle that I also LOVE). The leather is very nice quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from bridle I tried three other bridles from other catalogs and they just didn't fit right. The Smart Pak customer serivce was great with sizing/selection and this bridle is perfect. The leather is soft "out of the box" for a nice fit and looks lovely on. I am very happy with this item.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from bridle The crystal browband has a crystal that doesn't sparkle so it looks dirty. I couldn't return it because already took the tags off. I would have thought it was looked at before it went out. A bit unhappy about that... The leather is nice and soft.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful bridle I was having a hard time finding a nice padded bridle to fit my big, but not huge horse. F/S was too small and O/S was way too big. I could have ordered mix and match pieces but, what a pain. After trying three, not so cheap bridles at my local tack store, I decided to give the Wellfleet a shot. With free shipping both ways I had nothing to lose. The bridle is lovely. Soft leather nice easy, good quality buckles with well fitted leather, No forcing straps through keepers, I hate that, great padding. I love it!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! My morgan sadly, took off unexpectedly with only the reins over his head and tromped all over my Passier Aries bridle.... Needless to say, I had to go bridle shopping and I although I liked my Passier, I found some places with loose stitching, the emblem had fallen out of the browband (although they replaced it free of charge) and the leather just didn't seem as soft as I would like. I found this bridle in my search, read reviews, and bought the Wellfleet Crystal Dressage Bridle. I LOVE IT! It is softer than my Passier and darker. It is beautifully crafted and durable. I love the new design with the padding at the poll... It just makes sense! It fit slightly larger in the noseband area than my Passier, but it is true to size. The bridle is just BEAUTIFUL!
