Micklem - new deisgn, no plastic in nosepiece?
I just received my fourth Micklem bridle, and this one does NOT have a stiff nosepiece with breakable plastic inside, it has a very thick flexible leather nosepiece. This is a multibridle. The cavesson is padded on the inside as well, which I don't remember being on the first mulitbridle I owned. (which went with the horse when the horse was sold, so I cannot compare)
I have had three other Micklems, one multibridle and two competitions. This is the first one I've received that looked like this.
I think the leather on this one is nicer, too.
Anyone else seen this? Was this an advertised change? I know that several people had been disappointed that the plastic inside there bridles had broken thus rendering the bridle useless.
