    Help me find a new halter

    I'm looking for a good mid-range priced leather halter for Vida. I would like one that matches her bridle which is a light color I guess it would be a saddle tan. I'm having a hard time finding one that isn't really dark.
    My price limit is about $50, anyone seen a leather halter that is a saddle tan color?

    You can see the color in my avitar. All my bridles are that color.


    Edit: Also what is a good brand name web halter? I usually just buy whatever is at the feed store but I'd like a really nice one.

    The only halters i've been buying latley is hamiltion halters, they seen to been lasting longer then weavers, the crazzy house in garden city would probably have one (so much take in the store it's hard to move around in) send them a pic of what the briddle looks like and they'll match it for you, they also have great prices....

    This site is cool...you can build you own halter and even change the horse's color so you can see what it will look like on her!!

    I may have shown you this one already...I'm getting confused. (its easy)

    OKie Dokie...You were'nt kiddin it really isn't easy to find that lighter colored halter! Maybe a way would be to find a manufacturer...I saw one on line but their site was under construction. I know that the store I found in harrison, ark. Makes them. Unfortunately they do not have a web site.

    ETA- I also have been using the Hamiltons....They have been thru some nasty yuck here and are still OK looking. I have washed them in the machine 2x. One has held up well the other is comming apart where its doubled. So..food for thought. I will buy another Hamilton. But then again...that's the better brand that they carry at my hubby's feed store too.

    Don't go for http://www.tackwholesale.com. The quality is really bad there (own experience... :( ).

    I'm thinking of combining both my wants with this one. Its part leather part webbing. I would like a black one but this is as close as I can find (its navy) What do you think?
    I guess I should give some back story. I want to use a regular halter under her bridle instead of the rope halter. I read in a 'safety on the trail' article that web or leather is safer for use on a trail then the rope. Plus doesn't give the constant pressure on the nose like the knots on the rope do.

    This one is $47 so within my range. I know its not a match but I think I would have to spend a lot more $$ to get what I want.

    I think it's a very nice one. Where did you find it? I'd personally go with the bright one (pink or lime). Lol!

    I actually just ride on trail with the cheap ($5) nylon one under the bridle. :)

    VIda, look at this one:

    Looks like the one you posted, cheaper, and in black.

    P.S. I buy at Dover all the time and so far very pleased.
