Ostler Oak Bark Bridle Leather Belt
Ostler - 1 ¼” (32mm) wide belt with Swage Harness buckle and two leather keepers will always stand out as an iconic bridle leather belt . This buckle is probably the oldest pattern used on equestrian leather work and can be seen on all manner of harness and tack, hence the belt’s name Ostler who looked after horses and especially the teams of horses pulling the coaches on arrival and departure at our many Coaching Inns when he would feed, water, stable and make any necessary changes before setting off again. (1” (25mm) and 1 ½” (38mm) options available)

Handling this belt one notices the wonderful heft to it. The weight of the leather even manages to balance some of the weight of the beautifully polished and solid brass buckle, which is quite a feat, as lesser belts have thin lightweight leather and clunky/clacky buckles. The leather creaks and smells as proper harness leather should I think, sensual too with a lovely tactile smooth surface. Thanks Tim, proper job that !
