Halter repair - what to use?

I have a few leather halters that met their demise from Beau wearing them in the field. Not to say that they are unsavable - far from it. For the one that's in better condition, the leather holding the clip on just needs restitched, which I would be more than willing to do.

So I was wondering. What kind of thread/material should I use to go about fixing his leather halter so I can leave it on him for a little while in the field once I'm able to go out to see him more often? Just in case his "U CAN'T CATCH ME LULZ" attitude decides to come back, I'd like to be able to leave a halter on him that I can grab to make my life easier.

Well I have heard other people say to use waxed dental floss. If it were me, I would just take it to a tack or shoe repair place, I like quick & easy.

I've used kite string before while repairing leather dog collars, worked pretty well.

If I had the money to spare to take it to a repair shop, I would. But I don't, so that's why I'm asking what to use to do it myself. :P

Kite string sounds like a pretty good idea, wouldn't have thought of that :o

They sell upholstery/button thread, stuff is awesome and virtually unbreakable!
You may want to check out a repair shop. I have one that really does not charge all that much. It may surprise you.

I used Chicago screws and they worked pretty well depending on where the repair is located. I do cheat with them. If I know it isn't something that ever needs to come out I put a tiny drop of JB weld in there and then screw them together. Works great and haven't lost one yet LOL
