If you are just showing at local shows, you might consider a nice leather halter (without silver). As you progress to larger shows, you can upgrade or add silver. I would definitely go with a dark oil / mahogany color for your horse.

Keep in mind that the fit of the halter is critical. Do an online search for halter fit to make sure whatever you buy is properly adjusted before you go to the show.

Hi

If Iklepickle can't sort you out then I can make one for you.
Here is one I made last month - you can see it on the horse it was made for. The headcoller was made with green padding and with the horses name stitched in as his owner requested.
All the leather is best quality English, the fittings are solid brass ( also English ) - the halter is 100% hand made and stitched.

How is the above comment meant? Are you saying I am untrustworthy? Both myself and nutty are both reputable companies. Either myself or nutty are more than happy to help if we can. Pro I hope you recieved my emails ok, if I can help then I am happy to and please be assured that all the products I make are also like nutty using the highest quality english leather that is hand waxed and produced in our home town and have been in business for over 160 years. We also want our clients to be happy and if are not saticfied with the finished product in any way or form will either be refunded or we will do our upmost to rectify any problems. Sorry but I feel that I needed to respond as we are a new business and only offer a high quality hand stiched bespoke horse wear product and our brass work is designed by our self and cast by our selves and feel that the comment was not called for. Love ikle pickle Newman design solutions, bespoke horse wear.co.uk

Thank you for the advice, but....

Ikle Pickle has very nice high quality work made. The designs are beautiful, and she has been extremely friendly and helpful.

I think she deserves a fair shot. Just like nutty saddler once had. Right?

Sorry, I just thought I'd say this.

Can anyone recommend a tack shop please?
Jeffers (www.jeffersequine.com) has a really nice "starter" halter for only $62.95. It would work just fine for what you need. Comes with a leather lead and everything.

I bought a so-called cheap halter when I decided to "try" showmanship. Two years later I'm still using it and we show all over the western US, even planning on Congress later this year. When I asked my trainer (who goes to AQHA World/Congress evey year) if I should get an upgrade her response was, "Why?" LOL. Love it. My $100 halter has served me well. 'Course, I added some crystals so it looks a little more high dollar, but only I know they were glued on with Crazy Glue Gel. (And now you.:)
