What price range are you looking at? www.pards.com has some congress cut halters. My favorite brand for halters is Kathys Show Equipment and they will make you a custom halter.

Your price limit is going to reduce your options. This is for your mare right?

Try these.

I really don't know the difference between a fitted and a congress cut but here are some that I found that are in your price range.

I personally think that this one would look beautiful on a dark horse.

Actually ChickSaddlery stuff are pretty crappy. I've been in store and they bring things to Expo every year. They are cheap, but quality-wise I wouldn't buy there expensive stuff. Also do NOT get any from Horse Tack : English and Western Tack at Wholesale Prices TackWholesale.com. Quality is just horrid!

I'd recommend to get one from -good- internet store, which allows returns. I was burned last year: got a show halter (not super expensive but not very cheap either) and 2 weeks later the silver part started to chip off. But... it was too late as they had just 5 or 7 days return policy. Arghhhh....

This place (it's my local store with big selection of western stuff) Carroll County Tack & Supply - Welcome to Carroll County Tack and Supply carries some nice show halters, but I don't remember prices. You can give them a call or send email (they are pretty good to respond) - they may have pics (they have on-line store too).

thats actually in the lower price range for one! Those things are really expensive. Most of them are $300-$400.

A really nice quality show halter will last for a very long time. I have had my Kathys Show Equipment show halter for ten years. I plan to use it for another 10 years. I paid $350 for it but if you consider how much use I have gotten out of it I don't think that is too bad.
