13 bridles you might like in your tack room

The best bridles for your horse won’t be the same as the best bridle options for his field mate – it all depends on the size and shape of his head, what discipline you do, how he goes and what works for him. If you’re not looking for an anatomical bridle, but something a bit more traditional, a bridle in this selection might catch your eye. Jump down for more help on what to consider when choosing a bridle.

It’s worth remembering that bridles do not come with a bit and only some include reins, so it’s best to double check exactly what you need to budget for. If your horse has a head that is likely to be difficult to fit, you may want to consider a made-to-measure bridle.
