Bridle Leather belts are hand made from 10-12 oz.(5/32" to 3/16") thick English Bridle Leather. Please note that British Brown Bridle leather normally is thicker than the other bridle leathers and can be as thick as 1/4". It is also firmer than the other Bridle leathers.
These belts come in 1-1/4", 1-1/2" and 1-3/4" widths. For bridle and harness leather belts in widths of 1", 3/4" and 5/8" see our skinny belts.
To build and order your belt please go to the bottom of this page and make your selections from the drop down menus.

Bridle leather is vegetable tanned cowhide that has been stuffed with tallow and oil to make it more supple. Bridle leather gets its name from what it was originally created for - a bridle - the straps on a horse's head, to connect to the reins. It is very strong and long lasting. Bridle leather is also dyed and finished on both sides at the tannery. There is the top side which is the full grain side and the back side which is the flesh side. Above right is a 1" wide black bridle leather belt without a buckle and with black chicago screws.
Our bridle leather belts have 5 holes one inch apart. Belts over 50" in length get 7 holes. The belt edges are beveled, burnished, and dyed by hand with attention to detail. If you want something different just send me a note in the comment section below.

Features To Select From:
Belt Measurement: See Determining Your Belt Measurement page before ordering. It is extremely important to provide me with your correct belt measure. I cannot accept returns for belts that are too big or small if the wrong measurement is provided. So please take the time to measure before ordering.
If you are ordering a belt without a buckle click here for measurement instructions.
Available Bridle Leather Colors:
Bridle leather belts are available in five colors. Tan, Chestnut, medium brown, dark brown and black.
Available Buckles in 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2" and 1-3/4" widths follows:
You will need the buckle number when ordering. See the available buckle pictures and descriptions on the Men's Leather Belt page. You can also click on the Help icon below where you select your belt buckle. The buckle number is listed to the right of each belt buckle picture.
If you need a belt wider than 1-3/4" see wide leather belts. The picture above shows a 1-1/4" and 1-1/2" wide black bridle leather belt with the Garrison solid brass buckle (buckle #12.4 and #12.5 on the men's leather belt page). Note that the bottom belt has a keeper loop. A Garrison buckle is a center bar buckle. Center bar buckles are designed to function as a keeper loop. So you do not need a keeper loop with a center bar buckle. In this case the customer really wanted the additional leather keeper.
