Great bridle! I have always liked the Micklem's, I don't use anything else. This is my first Deluxe Competition Bridle and I found the quality is great as expected but this bridle has a thicker rolled noseband and browband look and it has taken a little while to mould to the shape of the horses nose. Other then that, I would recommend this product to anyone in the market for a new bridle!

Loved by hundreds of Bit Bank Clients!!
Highly recommend any of the micklems, use on my clydie x (who is obviously a bit heavy in the hand) in all 3 phases of eventing with a neue schule team up snaffle and has made such a difference- especially in dressage! Really enjoy this bridle and is so so easy to clean and put on.
Such great quality and really fits the shape of my horses head really well and has padding in important areas which i did not expect! Have been using mine for about a week now and i cant fault it one bit
This bridle has been great with my TB. I haven't had to use the bit clips as I find it quite soft anyway. The leather is a great quality and very soft. I would recommend watching the Youtube videos on how to fit it if you haven't used a Micklem before, it really helped me.
Love this Bridle, my overly sensitive TB mare has become much more relaxed and less hyper responsive since using this bridle, she use to anticipate what might be coming and now she waits for the cue, the quality of this bridle is impeccable, the leather is supple, the hardware is good quality and the stitching is spot on with no loose ends or threads. the mickleham may not be for every horse or rider but I love mine and so does my horse
We have used a Micklem bridle for our very easily agitated TB mare before. We only had a brown one and required a black bridle so we purchased another brand. The mare hated it. I then ordered the Micklem Deluxe Competition Bridle for her. She was back to her beautiful self first time we used it. I wont use anything else on this horse. It is lovely quality.
The Micklem competition bridle fits our 14.1 hh Arab cross perfectly. It's super soft and looks amazing. We're very happy with our purchase. It also arrived very quickly.
My boy goes so well in this bridle. It fits really well and is so adjustable. The leather is so soft and the padding too. This is my second Micklem from Bit Bank and I wont go back to anyother bridle for my boy.
