It's a nasal strip, like a Breathe Right for humans, to keep the airways open and respiration efficient during hard aerobic exercise.

^ They work remarkably well, by the way. I ride a gelding that has some roaring problems in his older age and with a nasal strip his breathing sounds almost 100% normal even right after a cross country run.

And just to add to bubba and strange...

The patches are NOT on the nose band, but were applied directly to the horse. The bridle just sits over top of it.
