Hello

I have a request for a bit less bridle. The customer wants the nose band to have a liner with the rolled edges. What type of leather can I use for this type of liner? 

 

What do they typically use for this liner on english tack- neoprene?

I have used both chrome tan and a very light weight veg tan.  You can put a very thin layer of neoprene type material inside the fold for padding, but on a noseband, it may end up bulky.  If I had this project to build, I would probably get some English bridle leather from Wickett & Craig and split it down to abot 3/4 oz, if that.  Their English Bridle leather has a softish hand, not overly dense, and I think it would work well for the fold, or lined section.
