Usage examples for bridles
So he had to get up again, sling the bridles over his arm, and take to his march up and down the plot of turf; now stopping for a moment or two to try to get his cheroot to burn straight, and pishing and pshawing over its perverseness; now going again and again to the brow, and looking along the road which led to the village, holding his hat on tight with one hand,- for by this time it was blowing half a gale of wind. – Tom Brown at Oxford by Thomas Hughes
