    I have an Edgewood wide, fancy stitched, raised not padded noseband. It looks so nice that my friend borrowed it for Harrisburg.

    I submerge mine in soapy water - dish washing liquid or shampoo. It gets the stink out for a few days.

    I had a tib/fib fracture several years ago and ride in Herm Sprengers. Love them. I have near-constant knee pain when not riding, but no knee pain with the Sprengers.
