FLAT DROP - HAVANA NOSEBAND
FLAT DROP - HAVANA NOSEBAND
This flat drop overlay Havana English Leather drop noseband is part of our popular Gel Snaffle range. Padded with our unique gel, with use this noseband will mold to your horse’s face for reduced pressure on sensitive areas of the face.
All of our nosebands are double buckle nosebands, buckling on both sides of the crown piece. This helps to create a perfect fit and reduces the volume of leather passing over the poll, reducing pressure and increasing comfort.
Known as a drop and in some countries a Hanoverian, these nosebands are very popular with young horses. They encourage the horse to close it’s mouth without force. When the mouth is opened, slight pressure is applied and when the mouth is closed, all pressure is removed.
These nosebands can and should be applied loosely. the additional strap under the jawline stops the horse from crossing its jaw and running through the rein.
If you are buying a noseband for a non-Flexible Fit bridle that does not have attachments for double buckle nosebands, you may need to purchase one of our noseband converters.
Please note our Havana leather is very dark brown in colour.
Thank you for your purchase of your Flexible Fit product. In order to maximise the lifecycle of your products, we have included these care instructions for you to follow.How to maintain your bridle/leather product
Flexible Fit products are unique in that they are pre oiled in the vegetable tanning process. You will notice how soft the leather is when you receive your Flexible Fit product, and this means that maintaining your bridle/leather products is simple.The following steps should be adhered to in order to maximise the life of your product.
- Once you receive your product, try it on for fit. Do not do up the buckles as this will mark the leather, instead thread through the keepers in case you need to exchange the size. When you are certain that it fits properly, do the following BEFORE use.
- Use a leather cream such as Effax Leather Balsam to nourish and moisturise the leather. You will need to pay particular attention to the headpiece and make sure it is well moisturised.
- During the first two weeks of use you should cream your bridle 2-3 times per week to lubricate the leather fibres.
- DO NOT condition the leather every day after the first two weeks.
- DO NOT EVER use liquid oil.
- Once the leather is soft and well-conditioned, maintenance should be minimal. Occasional creaming is recommended once every 1-2 months.
- An occasional saddle soap can be used and can be wiped with a damp cloth at owner’s discretion by following product label directions. Do not use product on the bridle every day.
- If your bridle looks cracked or creased, you have not given the leather adequate leather conditioner, or not adequately conditioned the bridle before use.
- Clean your patent with a petroleum jelly (minimal amount)
