    Smile 2 Questions...please help

    I need your help with these 2 things...

    1. What do you think is better? A leather halter with a fancy name plate on it? Or a nylon halter with your horse's colors and his name on it?

    I saw this cool website where you can customize a halter with your colors on it and have his name put on the halter. I was thinking of doing that for my new horse..but on the other hand...i have a leather halter and im thinking of getting a name plate for it.

    These halters will be used while we are hanging out at a horse show. Its not for turn out. Which one should I get? The name plate of the color halter?
    ------------------------------------
    2.For christmas my mom got me a green square saddle pad. Its dark green with navy blue trim and white piping. I've used a few times. Then I had my mom wash it. Since its winter time..she can't put it outside to dry. So she put it in the dryer machine. When it came out..it looked smaller. So I took it to the barn and it did look small. It shrunk. It won't fit my saddle anymore. :o( So now I am looking for a green square saddle pad. I was wondering...how much would you pay for a saddle pad? Please include the shipping. I found some on ebay that I liked...and then I also found someone who can make them. Then I saw some on a shopping website. I want to compare some prices...how much would pay for saddle pad?

    Thanks.

    Personally I'm very traditional. Nice leather halter with a nameplate is all the "bling" I need!! Plus I prefer leather to nylon.

    I think the leather halters w/ brass name plates are very classy and elegant. Most of mine have the nylon halters though because I love to give them each "their" color w/ their names on them. Black, Beauty, Blue, and Pistol each have one. Pistol has a hunter green one w/ gold writing, Blue's is purple with silver writing, Blacks is Black w/ Silver writing and Beautys is Burgendy and Blue... I'm going to Get Ri one in red and black. Not sure if I'll get the pony one or not...

    The leather ones are classy though... kind of "hunter-ish"....

    I like the leather halter. Leather is just looked at more kindly in shows than nylon.

    It depends how good of a saddle pad you are talking about. It can be anywhere from $25+

    I would definitely suggest the leather. It will look so elegant, especially if its brand-new and sparkling clean. As for your second question, it depends on what purpose your pad is used for. I'm assuming if you want a green one, its just going to be a schooling pad right? Because I don't think green is acceptable in the show arena (could be wrong though). I wouldn't spend a whole lot of money. Maybe from $30-40. You can get a very nice, durable saddle pad for this price and even cheaper.

    Thank you everyone for helping me decide on what I should do with the halter. And Yes,the green saddle pad is for schooling.

    Pistols halter is really dirty in this pic. It's hunter green w/ black overlay and gold writing. He has a matching leadrope too...

    I would defiantly go with a leather halter - much more traditional!

    I am rather obsessed with saddle pads, Dover occasionally has some on sale, anywhere from $10 - 20. But $10 is cheap. If you want a pretty pad try Equine Couture (sp?) but the prices are much higher.
