i have never seen what you were referring to so that is why i mentioned the bronc halter to see if that was the lines you were thinking of- the ones that i have seen have tooled leather over the nose .. would to tooling show up on a normal leather halter? I think it would be to small to appriciate

APPARENTLY according to my mom she likes them. Any recommendations of places to order one? She needs a draft size...

I think a leather halter with your sisters horses name on it would be a fabulous gift! What a thoughtful thing to do :)

You mean something like this?

I think that depending on the style, a nicely tooled leather halter and name plate would be an excellent gift.

I really like that halter in the pic. Yeah, it would be a little different from some of the plainer leather halters, but that is what would make it so cool - and very rich looking. I'd totally go with that - assuming your sister likes a little bling and isn't a less is more kind of girl. :)

Well actually I was referring to one which had the designs actually tooled into the leather as opposed to carved into silver... After thinking about HER preferences though I think I'm going to go ahead and get a nice quality Dover halter with a name plate... in a draft size. lol

I think it sounds nice and would look stunning on a heavy horse =D Though i would say name plate on side rather than tooled into the leather over the noseband =D
