    I have lost faith in side-ears!

    With certain bits anyways....

    Long story short - sweet six bit + side ear = heart attack

    So, I'm shopping and need help from you guys!

    I guess you need to see my tack right now, minus the headstall:
    (Not that im overly picky for matching...)

    And the equine in question that many of us know all too well:

    And this is the headstall I am replacing:

    Okay, so before I turn you guys loose to help me search, I need some opinions on a few headstalls I have found.

    1 is so pretty!!! It'd go great with your breast collar and with her lovely colouring

    Pick the headstall with the fewest sharp corners or edges. Functional is more important than pretty.

    And, why "heart attack?" I don't understand.

    I think that what the op might mean to say is that the headstall had a critical malfunction that a very inopportune time. That is to say, the whole thing came off the horse's head. I've heard of it happen before, and I can't imagine that it must have felt like when it happened. I'd have had a heart attack too!

    I like 1 and 6 the best. I don't like a head stall without a chin strap. It's just to easy for it come off.

    I am torn between 1 and 6... and that's just one store!!!

    And by the mini-heart-attack.... it didnt fall right off, but it very well could have!
    I havent had one come off unless the horse was rubbing, and even then, some horses can get browband/throatlatch headstalls off.

    I have a photo... btw... it was the first barrel in a barrel run and I didnt notice the bridle until after.... SCARY STUFF MAN
