Saddles and Bridles
For hand sewn horse saddles, linen is still used as it has a good handle and feel as well as produces a very tight seam.
In the case of machine sewn saddles, threads such as a cotton wrapped polyester corespun thread, with a glacé finish, or bonded nylon are now being recommended.
For equestrian applications such as bridles, we provide sewing threads that apply superior abrasion resistance in the sewn product. Sewing threads for horses yield a tough uniform bond with an exceptionally soft construction.

Since conditions and applications vary considerably in the use of the thread, Coats and its distributors can make no guarantee of results. These recommendations are given in good faith but without warranty or liability on the company or its employees. The thread user should assure herself or himself by preliminarily testing that the thread is suitable for the end use intended.
