At some point soon I will do a review of the Two Horse Tack halter Tristan has been in for almost two years, but today is not that day. It has served its purpose admirably – to get beat up and soaked with disinfectant constantly – but I am ready to go back to a proper leather halter.
I’ve decided a really nice new halter will be Tristan’s Christmas present this year, so I am asking for advice.
I know what I want:
- black leather
- 3/4″ leather width
- good nameplate (true deep engraving, none of this surface engraving that scratches off in 3 months)
- maybe gray padding?
- nickel/silver hardware
- clip attachment at chin, NOT bolt snap
So far in perusing various websites, I can’t yet hit all of these things. The 3/4″ width leather is the trickiest. I know it’s non-standard, but it’s what I ordered his Two Horse Tack halter in and I’ve kind of fallen in love with the way it refines his thick mustang head a little bit.
Here he is in the THT halter, for reference, so you can see what I mean by the 3/4″ width just working a bit better for him.
