Other than that I don't know. . . .
My bridle is synthetic, && now thinking about it the middle of the bridle where it was put together has an edge that may be rubbing him back && forth to cause the hair to fall out....My bridle was fitted by a trainer && I havent fooled with it since so it should still be fitting properly...It may be because of that edge on the underside of the band that goes behind his ears, I'm sry I'm not good at wording things...
This spot is not bald, the hairs are just really really short and thinned out...
Should I try a supple leather bridle, because I have one I can use I was just using synthetic because of less maintnince.
Do they make like cooshings that I can slip on the bridle like they have with halters?

Also about the fungus/bacteria suggestion, Would dandruff cause this mane problem because we just got rid of his dandruff issue recently?

Yes he has been dewormed, I will try posting pictures but my camera and computer have been acting up so I'll try my best....
