Combining comfort with design innovation, the Horseware Micklem® 2 Deluxe Competition Bridle offers show quality with outstanding performance for a tension-free experience.

This Micklem® Bridle alleviates pressure points often found in more traditional bridle designs by avoiding nerve trigger points around your horse's face. This beautiful hand-finished leather bridle alleviates pressure around the poll and ear area, paying close attention to the internal mouth and tongue harmony. Any risk of numbness or pain issues in the lower half of your horse's face is overcome via its distinctive configuration.

Unlike some low-fitting dropped nosebands, which can bring discomfort with breathing restrictions, this noseband is wider and incorporates soft padding within a unique design. Soft padding is a theme running throughout the bridle, with the headpiece, browband and cheekpieces offering a cushioned feeling in high-sensitivity areas. The bridle comes with tongue protection bit clips and two sets of bit straps for an adjustable experience. A fancy contrast stitch across the nose and browband finishes this stunning competition bridle.

An impressive bridle committed to giving your horse a tension-free experience while encouraging the horse to relax and focus - performance with peace of mind for the rider.

  • Before you use a new leather product for the first time, make sure you oil it thoroughly. Oiling tack makes it supple and prevents it from drying out and cracking or breaking during use. After an initial cleaning, follow regular wash instructions.
  • Care for your leather regularly with a damp sponge and saddle soap to retain a soft, solid leather. It is essential for leather care and must be used liberally, always before hydrating the leather with a conditioner.
  • Use warm water to dampen a sponge. Squeeze any excess water out of the sponge before using it. Wipe down all the pieces of the bridle to remove sweat, dirt and grease. Allow the leather to dry naturally before applying saddle soap. This will help to remove any stubborn dirt or grease left over.
  • Pay particular attention to cleaning areas of your bridle that are typically under pressure during riding and exposed to saliva, such as bit straps, bottom back strap, and reins where they come in contact with bit.
  • It is recommended that you regularly apply conditioner. Completely dismantle your bridle when applying conditioner and apply with a soft cloth or sponge. Apply the conditioner once you have cleaned your leatherwork with saddle soap.

Storage instructions

  • Once clean and dry, reassemble your bridle and loop reins through top back strap for storage.
  • A climate-controlled environment is best for tack. Dry heat will make leather brittle, while humidity can cause it to mould and mildew.
  • Storing your bridle in a fleece lined bridle bag will help prevent moisture.
