Help with finding a new bridle.

Hey guys,

I just bought a 16.2 hh warmblood, and so I am going to be needing a new bridle. I really want to find a (not outrageously expensive) dressage bridle with a thicker nose band. I like the look of it, especially for his face, and I thought that someone on here would know of where to find one. I have tried all of the major websites, Dover, SmartPak, Stateline, etc. but wanted to see if anyone had a specific one they liked before I decide which to buy.

Thanks in advance!

Have you looked on ebay? Most sellers will measure for you if you ask.

Be careful with eBay. That's where I got my bridle and, when I bought it, I thought it was going to be decent quality, but it turned out to be one of those Made in India pieces of junk. Not that there's not good stuff on there, just saying make sure you check it out thoroughly.

Check out They have a lot of oversize tack, as well as draft. My next bridle is going to be from there.

I get you about the wider noseband. The one on my bridle is wider and I love it on my monster's big ol' head.

I don't own one, but I hear that the HDR bridles that Dover sells are a decent middle of the road brand - they come in all types - crank, figure 8, hunt, flash - just look them up. For me, I like Courbette as a good all around brand - I can get almost 10 years out of one of those....
