I have had one really great leather halter for the past 15 years, brass fitting's and really nice leather, I think I only had it repaired once since I bought it.........untill now.....abby has tore it up 3 times in the past year....i'm afraid that the saddle repair guy is starting to knw me by name, is there any trick to making a leather halter longer?, her every day halter is a hamiltion halter , which she has messed up also

I would ditch it and get a new halter or you can hang it somewhere special..
I don't really like to use leather halters for everyday use (my opinion) unless to look snazzy going to a show with and that is the only time my horse has one on.

I really like rope halters!

IMO, leather halters are only good for showing or turnout (If they're cheap.) I bought one for my gelding and left it on him in the stall overnight. He managed to get it caught on the door latch and he broke the throat latch off of it! I would keep the halter and hang it up for decoration or something and replace it.

Hm. Maybe one of them Likits or something or a Jolly ball or them apple things. She must want to destroy something!
