What is Bridle Leather?
Qualities of Bridle Leather
2. It must be smooth, comfortable and supple to handle. As it's originally used for making bridles, it must also be comfortable next to the horses skin. The treatment on the flesh and skin sides are equally important and must be smooth.
3. It should be strong and durable over a long period of time and still look good after it gets wet or dirty

Bridle Leather Care
Although we polish all Sage Brown bridle items at the final finishing and inspection stage, the whiteness will migrate back to the surface after a period of time. This is quite normal, and is a sign of the high quality of bridle we use demonstrating the degree to which the waxes fats and oils have penetrated into the leather (lesser 'bridle' leathers can have a finish sprayed on at the end of it's process).
The leather, if brushed with a soft cloth or a clean brush, will buff back to a beautiful shine. The whiteness is a sign much appreciated by connoisseurs of leather.
