little S and slobber straps
Hi all, I am currently making my own tack (hubby has bought me a COMPLETE leather workshop as a combine birthday and christmas present).
My gelding goes best in a little S hackamore. I have always loved mecate reins--one peice with a lead (convienient on trails)--plus I like the way they look. That being said--Im thinking about making a thin pair of slobber straps to fit on the hack, and getting mecate reins.
I know slobber straps and mecates are typically used on a snaffle--can any one think of an issue of using these on a little S?
I have just made a dark brown single strap headstall to match these to, will try and post a pic when they are both done.
Also working on a breastcollar for my draft--as I cannot find ANYTHING that will fit her, and I am wary of buying online, as she isnt overly big for a draft (Only 16.2--but also 16.2 wide, lol.
