Thumbs down Replacement plate for show halter

I swear my luck is so bad, that if I fell in a bucket of lollipops, I'd come out sucking my thumb!

Someone took the silver nose plate off my western show halter! Don't know who, why or how, but it's gone.

This halter is a great fit on my horse and the cheek plates and buckle are still on. Anyone know where to find a replacement?

Alas I am not rich or I'd buy a whole new halter.


When in doubt, pinky out.

That is a bummer! I don't know for sure but have seen silver sets to apply to halters and/or bridles before. Wondering if you could hunt for a used halter and exchange the silver.

Montana Silversmith? They have a lot of good quality replacement pieces for saddles and small tack. Sometimes I see those on eBay too.

I think most pet stores can do engraved name plates. I know of a couple places around me and it usually costs around $10.
There is a tack store here that does engraved name plates for halters, and there is also a lady who lives locally who has her own little side business doing it. I'm sure something similar can be found where you live?

Who made the halter? Is there a maker name stamped on the back of the buckle?

I'd second Montana Silversmiths. They have some really lovely pieces. <3



I'd also double check Etsy (I'm sure there would be a seller willing to make something for your bridles dimensions.)

Do you know what brand your halter is?
As in .... is it a cheaper show halter, or it is a quality expensive show halter?


I believe most of the quality ones you can purchase replacement plates and/or send them in to be repaired.

It's made by Dale Chavez. Snobby company, they figure you can afford the halter once, you can buy a new one. No replacement pieces.


When in doubt, pinky out.

If your not in a hurry, watch on ebay. I've seen silver pieces from halters and headstalls sold in lots or individually.
I think there used to be some FB pages for buying and selling Dale Chavez stuff. You might luck out on a silver plate with the same pattern.

A silver maker we used buy silver from when hubby was making custom headstalls sold halter plates but I just checked and they didn't have any at all.

You can try Montana Silversmiths but note their silver is electroplate and looks different against sterling which Dale Chazev is. Even against the bright cut which Montana Silversmiths tries to emulate.

Getting a silversmith to replicate it is an option but usually silversmiths prefer not to do so. Budding new silversmiths might give it a try.

If you're dead set on all matching silver you could sell the silver that's on it and put the money new set to put on or a new halter.

Good luck.

If you are just looking to replace the plate with any kind of silver, you are better off buying a used show halter and cannibalize it. Probably same quality silver as you will find at Montana for the same cost or even less.
I would be choked if someone stole silver off of my Dale Chavez gear! I would line everyone up against the wall and interrogate them with a baseball bat!
