I did a good cleaning and conditioning on it last week but I'm not sure that is the best move. If there is moisture under the leather causing this, conditioning may just hold that moisture in further. Here's a look....
So what your thoughts? Have you ever seen something like this and how did you combat it?
On a positive note... I want to share how much I LOVE my bridle. In April I bought a new bridle as my existing one was literally falling apart in places. I held off as long as I could because I wanted to get a good one and heck... those are expensive! I found a great company called Five Star Tack (http://www.fivestartack.com) when they made donations to CANTER Mid Atlantic. Their tack is both high quality and unique.
Golly has a wide forehead and requires a wide browband. A regular horse size is a bit too small and the oversize is too big. He's a tough fit.
The great thing about Five Star Tack is that they work with you to find the perfect fit. After an in depth conversation with them they suggested the regular size should work. When I mentioned that I liked the star browband, she swapped that browband out with another bridle and essentially created a custom bridle for me. Even better ..... when the bridle came in and the browband was too small, she swapped out a larger one for it. That's great customer service!
I love the celtic cross, the leather is supple, its nicely padded and all the hardware works great. Its nice to purchase something and really love it. Here is Golly in his bridle after our ride this morning. Isn't he handsome?
