I personally have a belt headstall and I honestly don't like it, it slides back and I just don't like it. However, I use it every time I ride pretty much.

Actually I saw these on the Facebook group, I knew I recognized that belt headstall. For some reason this looks really flimsy to me. This is the one I have and it, I want to say reinforced but I feel like that is not the right word, on the back and your just looks like an actual belt. That may be something to worry about because they don't hold up unless it has something making it sturdier.

It shouldn't be that difficult to make one of those into a split ear with some measuring, a sharp knife and a stitcher.

I would have it reinforced. Personally I've never seen one that doesn't slide back. My friend had one and it fell apart, that's why I say reinforce it and check it over

I highly recommend that it be reinforced to, normal belts which it looks like this is will not hold up. If you get it reinforced you will ensure it will last longer that how it is currently.

I ran in a belt headstall for years on my other horse and didn't have a problem, but now I would probably reinforce it.

Yeah, I would definitely have it reinforced and a ear piece added for extra stability. But it's really pretty! I love it! :)

Alright,thanks guys! Do you guys have any ideas on how to reinforce it?

If your friend makes custom tack I'm sure she could! You just have the back lined with extra leather to tack the stress so it doesn't fall apart when riding. It's gorgeous though! (:

I personally don't like the belt head stalls. I do not feel like they are contoured to fit a horses's head well, nor is the leather tough enough (I've snapped my own belt on the saddle horn before easily). Plus the kind like you posted will slide back.

All of my bridles are broadband with a throat latch. That's my personal preference but I want something sturdy and reliable.
