Shopping for a Custom Bridle can be daunting, so we have tried to take all of the guesswork out of the equation. We created a Custom Bridle Measurement Sheet that outlines what needs to be measured on your horse, and an online ordering system.
Once you have measured your horse according to the guide for a perfect custom bridle fit, you can input the measurements online and get us started on your project ASAP!
Custom bridles are just like they sound – a bridle made specifically for the measurements of your horse. Our bridles are similar to Jimmy’s 20th Century Bridles that have been a showpiece in the show ring for so many years but are no longer manufactured. The color of the leather is Sedgewick Hazel as is all EquuSport Bridlework.
We have chosen a lighter leather that oils to a nice, rich brown. Light color tannage ensures top quality hides. Dark color is often used to hide the leather’s imperfections.

Most of our bits do not come with rounds. Any gag bits not pictured with rounds need to have rounds (leather or rope) purchased separately.
Not always. All standard (non-custom) or off-the-shelf Pelhams, Kimberwickes, and Weymouths, excluding Poponcini, come with standard curb hooks and chains, but you can always order additional chains or hooks if desired. Curbs and hooks will need to be purchased separately on all custom curb bits.
