Ascot Quality Leather Grackle Bridle with Stainless Steel fittings.


The Grackle bridle is used to remind the horse to keep its mouth closed and helps prevent him from crossing his jaw. It also provides for more expansion of the nostrils, which is preferable for horses performing work involving galloping. This Grackle bridle has a soft faux fur centre pad for style and comfort. The raised and padded leather browband completes the balanced look.


Available in Black or Brown Leather

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.
