Ascot vs Classic Range
Classic Brand: Made from quality English Sedgwicks leather. 99% of this brand is hand made in the UK from our manufacturer in the West Midlands. It is possible, at an additional cost, to have some bespoke items made for customers. Traditional patterns are used.
Ascot: This is our imported brand made from high quality continental leather. Although less expensive than the Classic brand attention to detail & sizing are identical. We introduced this brand as a more affordable option for everyday use.
The Bridle is available in Black or Brown in the following sizes:
IN STOCK 1/2″/13mm Cheek Pieces, 1/2″/13mm Browband and a 7/8″/22mm width Noseband (Shetland, Pony)
BY ORDER 5/8″/16mm Cheek Pieces, 5/8″/16mm Browband and a 1″/25mm width Noseband (Cob, Full)
BY ORDER 3/4″/19mm Cheek Pieces, 3/4″/19mm Browband and a 1 1/4″/32mm width Noseband (Full Hunter Width, Extra Full Hunter Width)
Remember we can change components to suit (also have 6″ cheekpieces)
i) Always apply leather conditioner several times before using new tack, this will soften and protect the leather before use.
ii) Remove sweat and grime everytime the bridlework is used, using a slightly damp sponge or cloth.
iii) Re-apply leather conditioner as necessary, climate and use effect this, like watering a plant too much is as bad as too little!
iv) Depending how often you ride, you will need to dismantle your bridle completely for a thorough cleaning periodically. This will involve using leather cleaner (not saddle soap) and the re-application of conditioner.
v) Check the stitching and billets regularly, paying particular attention to where the bit is attached to the bridle at the reins and the cheek pieces, any wear should be repaired, or replaced by a reputable saddler immediately.
