Buffalo Leather of the Rockies?

Hello, I bought a Buffalo Leather of the Rockies bridle about a year ago that has sparkly turquoise inlay and I just got a matching pair of spur straps this Christmas. While I absolutely love them, I'm starting to feel nervous about the fact that they are made in India. The bridle is still somewhat stiff after a few coats of oil, but they seem to be pretty good for the most part. It's nothing like the India leather English saddle I learned to ride in. Is BLR good quality? It seems to be, but I'm very leery of India leather, and did not realize it was made in India until I got the spur straps. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

Leather from India is made from Water Buffalo, from what I have heard and seen it is a strong close grained leather, but tends to be stiff.

Only advice I can offer is to inspect it for cracks and fatigue before each use and you should be fine

Thank you so much! The bridle is less stiff than it was before and this stuff seems to be a lot better than most of the India leather I've dealt with in the past, but just the fact that the tag said "Made in India" scared me. LOL.
