Well it took a mail order and a bridle all the way from the middle of Canada, but atlast I've found a bridle that I'm happy with. The other bridles that I bought either didn't fit right (Sour has a rather wonkey head) or were of horrid quality.
I like this one. (Thanks for the recommendation, Spotted!) I'm able to take the blinders off as needed, and it adjusts very well. However, it has been in a box for a good mont, and so is very...smashed looking. It was laid out nicely in the box so everything is in good order, but it's definitely very flat and ofcourse, since it's new, STIFF.
So I need tips on trying to get it softened up and in working order before I put it on Sour. Since she's still very new to bridling, I really don't want to wrestle the bridle onto her head. Does anyone have a good leather softener brands that they like or way to get the leather more pliable? Being my first brand new piece of tack (besides halters, boots, etc) I'm not sure what I should be doing. Thanks!
Some picture to show the shape it's in, and just to show it off
