This Leather Noseband is made of 1 inch harness leather and lined with burgundy latigo leather. The leather has been edged, hand rubbed, treated with Neatsfoot Oil and hand rubbed again. The buckle is stainless steel with a leather keeper. The leather beneath the buckle is stitched together to keep the buckle in place when you adjust it between horses. The ring is also stainless steel. This is the softest noseband Dennis makes and will work really well on a sensitive horse or one that wants to use the noseband for balance rather than pushing on it or leaning into it. A very well made noseband that will hold up to many years of hard use.
