Ascot Market Harborough features Quality Full Leather Body with Rubber Grip Reins and all Stainless Steel Fittings.


The Ascot Market Harborough consists of a leather strap which attaches to the girth, this then passes between the horse's front legs before dividing into two straps with a clip at each end. These straps pass through the bit rings and are clipped onto one of a series of D-rings on the side of the rubber reins, depending on how much pressure is required. This is a training aid for ridden work and assists the horse to lower their head carriage and to work in an outline. 

In addition the Market Harborough is complimented by a set of 3/4"/19mm Rubber Grip Reins.

Excellent Value for this Very Popular Training Aid.


Available Adjustable Sizes:

Pony/Cob with 5/8"/16mm Rubber Grip Reins 

Cob/Full with 3/4"/19mm Rubber Grip Reins


Black or Brown  Leather with matching Rubber Reins

Leather should be cleaned and conditioned regularly to keep it supple and to prolong its life. Here are some useful tips on how to maintain your bridlework:-

i) Always apply leather conditioner several times before using new tack, this will soften and protect the leather before use.

ii) Remove sweat and grime everytime the bridlework is used, using a slightly damp sponge or cloth.

iii) Re-apply leather conditioner as necessary, climate and use effect this, like watering a plant too much is as bad as too little!

iv) Depending how often you ride, you will need to dismantle your bridle completely for a thorough cleaning periodically. This will involve using leather cleaner (not saddle soap) and the re-application of conditioner.

v) Check the stitching and billets regularly, paying particular attention to where the bit is attached to the bridle at the reins and the cheek pieces, any wear should be repaired, or replaced by a reputable saddler immediately.

What our customers say


Beautiful quality leather. The noseband is available in a plain, classic style to match my existing Dever bridle, so I can swap nosebands for jumping or showing. It is great to be able to buy a spare Grackle pad too - especially as good quality English leatherwork will last for years and years and it is the pad which will wear down first. Very quick delivery and a fair price for tack of this quality.




Great quality products, fast delivery.




Great service and fabulous quality leatherwork at very competitive prices, I only use genuine English leather and the craftsmanship is top-notch




Excellent quality bridle, just what I wanted (a plain bridle with an extra deep cavesson noseband for hunter showing classes). The bridle arrived within two days, free postage, and with a free bridle hook for the tack room, which was a lovely gesture. Very happy with my purchase.
