Overview

Why We Love This

The Harwich® Ergonomic Bridle by SmartPak offers outstanding quality with sophisticated and subtle treatments. This bridle will take your horse’s comfort to the next level with anatomic contouring at the crown that works to reduce pressure on tender areas like the poll and ears. It also features an ergonomic, padded noseband without or with flash that offers a clean look and comfortable feel, making this an ideal choice for sensitive horses. The browband and monocrown are also padded for maximum comfort. Harwich bridles are crafted from durable, supple, vegetable-tanned leather. The superb craftsmanship is reflected in the fine details such as the plain stitch design and sturdy, stainless steel hardware. Complete the look with matching rubber reins, included with purchase.

Reviews
Harwich® Ergonomic Bridle by SmartPak is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves it!!! I read recent studies on horse head pressure impacting movement. I decided to try an ergonomic bridle to see how my horse responded to reduced head pressure. WOWZA. Boy has extended out and stop fighting contact. Amazing. Plus the bridle is soooo supple and the reins are lovely. Beautiful bridle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch Bridle The Harwich Ergonomic Bridle by SmartPak is top-notch and probably by far one of the best bridles I've used! The leather is amazingly soft and supple and comfortably forms my horse's head. It is a very durable and high-quality bridle that does not disappoint! The Harwich Ergonomic bridle is perfect for everyday schooling and I even use it for the Jumper ring at shows. The fit is true to size, for reference I have a 16.3hh TB with dainty limbs and head and the Horse size fits her beautifully! The leather certainly stays soft and supple when I condition it about once a month. Overall, I absolutely love this bridle and I know it will last me a long long time!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality overall and very cheap leather One of the keeper loops on the cheek broke the second time I put this bridle on my horse. The leather is very low quality and the bridle looks cheap. I would not recommend this at all, and it is definitely not suitable for competition.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's Alright. I bought this with a gift card and on a pretty steep sale, so I paid less than $50 of my own money for it. I wouldn't pay full price! Pros: Fits my Arabian well (Cob size). I often have trouble with the noseband being way too big, and while I'm still on the last couple of holes, I didn't have to punch any more. Cheek pieces, crown, and browband fit her beautifully. It's a nice bridle for the price I paid, but definitely not worth more than $100. Cons: As others have noted, the leather quality isn't stellar. I conditioned the crap out of it before the first use, and will continue to do so, hopefully to prevent cracking. I certainly wasn't expecting $300 bridle leather, but for the full price of this bridle they really should find a little better leather. It's not my main bridle so it'll do alright for my purposes, but if you're looking for something good quality to use daily, I'd save your pennies and get something nicer and probably more durable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap quality, broke after 2 uses I was excited to see Smartpak had their own brand anatomic hunter bridle. Out of the box, the leather quality was not as good as their other bridles. Reins are too short, cannot allow my horse to stretch his head down without only holding buckle in one hand. One second use one of the noseband keepers broke. Very bummed out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality I love how this bridle fits and looks on my horse. I am however upset with the quality. The leather started cracking within seconds of being taken out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely bridle I bought this bridle a month ago. I wanted an ergonomic bridle to make my horse more comfortable. It was hard to find one without a flash nose band that wasn’t too expensive, but there it was at Smartpak! It seems to be well made, and my horse seems happy with it- no fussing and less bulk around the crown piece.,If it came with buckle ends instead of hooks it’d be even better! I’m very pleased with this bridle.
Date published: 2022-03-05
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quality wasn't great and holes are really big! The leather quality is not great and ultimately why I sent it back. Too expensive for bad , rough cut leather. And I'm not sure why the holes are so big. Odd. Sizing was tough too. My TB typically takes a cob size bridle, but I could barely close the noseband. The cut of the crown piece to allow space for the ears, was very nice however.
Date published: 2022-03-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great schooling bridle I bought it for one of my lesson horses recently. It’s a great schooling bridle, or competition bridle on a budget. Leather arrived was soft enough for immediate use. I bought a Cobb sized bridle for my 15.1h OTTB mare - she isn’t very big, and it fits her wonderfully.
Date published: 2021-12-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and classy My mare has been on a Western bridle, this was her first English one and it arrived Friday (on time). My trainer picked out a bit, I woulf give 5 star but it was a bit tricky to assemble the bridle. The leather is new but will soften up over time and with conditioning. For a first time bridle, that is a practical price I like it so far. It looks super classy and simple. Can’t wIt to see her with the bonnet when that arrives!
