Headstall Slides Back

When Lookit and I run at shows his headstall slides backwards down his neck because he pins his ears back when he runs. Any ideas on how I can keep the headstall in place? I always have to reach forward and push it back up in place. You can kind of see what is happening in this picture. It's a one ear headstall. Thanks! :)

Headstall with a browband should do the trick

I agree, browband would solve your problems completely. The only other thing I would think to try to prevent it would be to tighten it up a hole or 2, but if it's already as tight as it needs to be, then that would just cause more problems.

That's what I was thinking, but I was just hoping there would be some way for me to get out of spending over $100

I guess I'll be on the look out for a new headstall with red bling as it is as tight as it can go. I'm bummed..I have such a hard time finding red stuff that I like, and I really liked this headstall.

Heck, if you're talented enough to tie a length of rope to where it looks nice, that would function as a browband and wouldn't screw with your color scheme too much.
