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 North 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. A lovely bridle suitable for the most prestigious of show rings!

The ½” browband and noseband are softly padded. With the Wellfleet’s comfort crown engineering to alleviate poll pressure. Leather padded disc, fancy stitch on the disc and noseband. 1/2” cheeks with hook stud ends. Hand beveled, rubbed and finished edges. Stainless hardware with roller buckle on caveson. Complete with 5/8" raised fancy stitch rubber reins with reinforced pressure points.

Size: Cob, Full, O/S
Color: Hazelnut Leather with Dark Brown Padding

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 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Bridle I am very impressed with the quality of the leather on this bridle. Although I don't think it comes as soft out of the box assome people have claimed, it looks and feels amazing once conditioned. I have been slowly working on darkening the leather as it is a bit too light for the horse I plan to use it on. The stitching is very detailed and well done. It looks great on my delicate headed mare. It wouldn't hesitate to take it in the show ring!I do have one complaint about this bridle. I found it to run very large. My mare usually fits a cob sized bridle well. In order for this bridle to fit her, everything is adjusted to the very top hole (except the noseband). The throat latch is so large that I will have to have it shortened. I am keeping this bridle because it is the best quality I have seen in this price range, but I sure hope it doesn't stretch!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning I've had this bridle for a month now and it's beautiful. It oiled up to a gorgeous dark brown. But will stay lightly if that's what you prefer. This stitching is beautiful and the padding is great. The reins are perfect and an amazing bonus. I would recommend sizing down. My 16.2 Wb has an average head and she fit a cob perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Bridle I have the hunter version of the Wellfleet bridle and switched to jumpers recently. The Figure 8 Bridle went on sale so I purchased it based on how well my other bridle is holding up. The bridle oils to a beautiful brown color. The full size fits my 16'3 medium boned TB well. I can't wait until my first show!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fit isn't right I was disappointed with the fit of this bridle. The quality seemed like it was nice and the padding on the mono-crown was nice as well. I originally got the FULL, but when I tried it on my horse it was HUGE. I tried it on two horses at my barn and the noseband was big everywhere with no room to adjust and the throat latch ran too big as well. I exchanged the FULL for a COB and ran into the same problem. The nose band fit better, but not great. The rest of the bridle fit better and almost like a fULL. I tried the COB on a horse that has a dainty cob sized head and it was SWIMMING on her. Needless to say, I was disappointed at the fit of the this bridle and exchanged it for a different brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bridle I'm loving this bridle!! Was ready for use after just 2 oilings, super soft and supple. The Full size is a hair on the large size, but not much - maybe 2 holes. I tried the COB size first on my OTTB mare (her dressage bridle is a COB), and it was WAY too small! SmartPak exchanged it for the FULL (thanks for free return shipping!!) and it fits great. Like I said above, maybe 2 holes bigger than I would ideally like it, but still have room to adjust with different bits.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bridle for the price Really happy with this purchase. Great quality for the price. Have had to oil it considerably, but it is darkening up nicely. Quality of the leather is the same as bridles that cost 2 times as much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone is jealous! This a a wonderful bridle. It fits great, and for once the browband on a horse size is not too small for a warmblood. The bridle takes oil well, the leather is beautiful, and the overall quality is some of the best I have seen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a quality bridle for the price. I did order a cob size for my warmblood who has a relatively small head, and it fit well. The full size would have been too large.
