I had the same problem. I used a soldering iron to put new holes in it. It has interchangable tips so you can change the hole size. You just have to be careful because it and the neltes nylon are HOT! I have also used it for adding holes to nylon, halters, headstalls, and breast collars, and to "fix" the ends on my home made rop reins.
The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being...If you never love a horse, you will never understand.
