Bridle Hooks

Hang your bridles or halters neatly on a bridle hook to keep them off the floor and handy to reach.

Many bridle hooks provide a wide surface to hang your bridle on to help the bridle's crown hold its shape. They can be plain but functional, or quite beautiful. The term "bridle hook" is a bit generic, but in general it means a hook (often plastic, metal, or wood) on which to hang, bridles, halters, or other pieces of tack or equipment.

Please scroll down the page, beneath the items for sale, for a short article on good things to know before buying a bridle hook.

From eBay, Etsy, and Amazon

eBay, Etsy and Amazon are all excellent sources to find bridle hooks. This area lets you compare the prices and selection between them on one page!

Read each description carefully to know if...

Quick Tip: You may want to choose a bridle hook that has a wide area (a few inches should do it) for the crown of the bridle to rest on as apposed to skinny hook or peg. Wide bridle hooks help the crown of your bridle hold its shape.

Bridle Hooks - Good Things To Know Before You Buy

What is the bridle hook made of? Some of them are plastic, metal, made from horse shoes, etc. Plastic bridle hooks can be light weight and colorful, while ones made of metal or horse shoes can add a more rustic look to your barn or stable.

How wide is the surface the crown of the bridle will rest on when it's hanging on the hook? Some bridle hooks have a narrow resting surface for the bridle. Hanging a bridle on a narrow hook can sometimes misshape the crown of the bridle. If you're going to hang a bridle or halter on the hook for long periods of time between use, consider one with a wider surface.

How does the bridle hook attach to the wall? Some bridle hooks simply hook or hang over something like a stall or fence, while others require permanent hanging with screws. If the bridle hook you like requires screws to mount it, are the screws included (hint: usually not)?

This is a portable bridle hook. The "U" shaped part is for hanging bridles, halters, ropes, etc., while the square-shaped part is for simple hanging: just hang the bridle hook over a board or something similar. No screws, etc. required (see the next photo).

This is a bridle rack instead of a single bridle hook. Depending on your needs, and how much room you have in any given area, most barns or stables find it handy to have a combination of bridle racks and bridle hooks.
