Do you recommend exclusively sheepskin to protect the skin from the noseband irritation or do you have other tips (vetrap etc..)?

I’ve always used sheepskin! They have sheepskin nose bands online for about 12$ and they stay in great shape :)
I'd use sheepskin first but a lot of people wrap hackamore nosebands with vetwrap, sometimes with soft foam underneath it too.
Vaseline always helps
I heard that vetrap helps! I personally only will use a sheepskin hackamore if I don't use a bit. I also don't really ride with a noseband anymore when I'm not showing or training :/
I would prefer sheepskin over any synthetic material, as they can irritate the skin further because they're not as breathable.
