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.

Harwich® Ergonomic Bridle by SmartPak is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Bridle I purchased this bridle for my sensitive OTTB gelding in my search for the "perfect bridle." I had tried several other bridles of different brands and designs (and still have some of them in my tack locker) and when we landed on this bridle, it finally seemed to be "the one". My OTTB is a sensitive soul, as mentioned. He does not like much fuss around his ears and gets very frustrated with flashes as he does not like his mouth to feel as if it's being held shut. The Ergonomic shape of this bridle offers freedom and comfort through his poll as well as comfort in his jaw and mouth where he often holds tension. This is our go-to and our daily use as well as show bridle. I clean this bridle after every ride with basic leather soap and conditioner, and it is stored in a non-climate-controlled tack room and has held up beautifully now for two years.. Full size fits him perfectly. I cannot recommend this bridle enough!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a beautiful bridle I recently lost my heart horse, who was an 18hh Dutchwarmblood and was an O/S in everything. My new horse is 16hh on his tallest day and sadly I needed all new equipment. I bought this bridle and it is absolutely gorgeous. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the leather isn't as nice as it could be. it gets a little crinkly but otherwise its great!

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.

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.
