    Huntley Sedgwick Bridle Leather

    Huntley Equestrian’s Bridle leather is skillfully produced by J & E Sedgwick & Co. in England, the world’s premier saddle leather tannery.  Sedgwick carefully selects only the highest-quality cowhides.  Sedgwick’s superior tanning methods and meticulous quality control measures make it the best bridle leather in the world.  

    Sedgwick traditional bridle leather is an open grain leather (not sealed) and has a high shine finish due to the care and attention it receives as it works its way through the various Sedgwick processes in polishing, dying, and finishing.  Sedgwick uses natural oils and fats during the leather tanning process.  The Bridle leather is infused with natural cod oils and tallow fats in the fiber structure to ensure that the fibers are lubricated and do not dry.  This process eliminates the need to further oil the leather before using.  This preparation results in leather that is flexible, supple and resilient with a high tensile strength.

    Conditioning and Caring for Huntley Sedgwick Bridle Leather

    Conditioning and caring for the Huntley Sedgwick Bridle leather is very important to the rider and horse.  Sedgwick Leather that is properly cared for will provide a safe ride and years of use for the equine athlete. 

    Using synthetic oils, solvents, and fixatives on Sedgwick leather will break down the fibrous structure of the leather.  Dipping or soaking Sedgwick leather in oil will damage the leather by oversaturating the leather fibers and will cause the sealed edge, along the raised sections of the bridle, to dissolve.  

    DO NOT USE HOT OIL, DIP OR SOAK BRIDLE LEATHER IN OIL, OR “STRIP” BRIDLE LEATHER

      Recent Feedback

      5/5:

      "I am so happy with the purchase of this bridle. The quality of the leather, stitching, and craftmanship is great. In addition to being well made, this is a pretty bridle. After one oiling the leather softened and darkened perfectly. The sizing was accurate. The keepers keep and the fittings work well. I don't write reviews often, but I am happy to recommend this bridle to anyone looking for a high quality and reasonably priced bridle. "
