Non metallic hydraulic line fittings.

My wife has a horse carriage, 2 axles and 4 wheels, that has disk brakes on the rear wheels. The brakes use a "nylon" appearing brake line with fittings I've never seen before and
one of the 90* fittings blew out at the caliper (obviously a good assembly job😕) and the brake fluid leaked out.
I'm looking for a source for this kind of fitting and the tool to assemble it.
I can't find anything resembling thIs tubing and fittings through Google. Does anyone know enough about this type of white "nylon" hydraulic tubing to tell me where to get new fittings and the tools to assemble them? Perhaps they are used on motorcycles??

Sounds like it might be similar to the nylon tubing and fittings that come with an aftermarket oil pressure gauge. In that case the nylon tubing is sized the same as copper or brass tubing so that you can use the same fittings and ferrules.

A picture of the setup might help narrow it down.
