Halter for arabian???

My brother wants to show his reg. Egyption arabian this summer at the local open shows but needs a show halter, he's doing her in purple and I found an arabian show halter I want to get him for her but someone told me that the noseband was to thin, does it matter how wide the noseband is???

For Arabian show halters, the thinner the better. The idea is that you're showing off the horse's head, not the halter.

Go to your local tack store and pick up an Arabian magazine. That will give you a good idea of what to get. And I would keep the color neutral. My Little Pony colors are fun for barn tack and pleasure riding but be very careful with it in the show ring (my apologies in advance to all those offended).

^ and people answered you. Thinner is better, no crazy colors if you want to be taken seriously.

Billy Royal Braided Patent Thread Halter in Leather Thread Halters at Schneider Saddlery

This is pretty much the 'go to' Arabian show halter. You need a throat latch chain, chin chain, leather lead and a pair of Conchos to go with. You can buy to either match or compliment the horse's color but the colored beads are out.

Do check what colors the show people are using, plain black, sparkles, colors, etc. It helps if the color complements the horse's colors.
