Equestrian Hire

About Equestrian Hire


Hire a Micklem Bridle was started by Susannah Secrett in 2012 to allow customers to try the Micklem Bridle before committing to buying it. We changed our name to Equestrian Hire a couple of years later as we added to our list of products. All the products we sell are used by us regularly. We test out the Micklem bridle on different horses so we can recommend a bit that you can try with it.

Our vision is there is a happy combination of bit and bridle for each horse you just have to find it!


The Idea

Why buy from us rather than somewhere cheaper? You will get free sizing and fitting advice and if the bridle doesn’t fit we will replace it with the correct size. We size your horse with photos emailed to us and use our unique measuring system. We can do this from photos as we have fitted over 2000 Micklem Bridles since 2012!

Our ‘try before you buy’ system

Pay for the product as a deposit

Try for 2 weeks depending

Either return it within the hire period and then you will be refunded less the relevant hire fee and original delivery charge subject to the hire terms.

Or keep it and then you would have tried it for free as the products we send out to try are new.

Style & Quality

William Micklem designed the Micklem bridle in 2008. In 2019, he has designed the Micklem Headcollar, the Micklem Breastplate and the Micklem girth. All of these are available from us.
