What's Your Fav Leather Halter? Where to Buy?

So, I made a dumb mistake recently, and now my favorite halter is snapped apart in 4 pieces. So, time to buy a new one!!

I'm looking for a Leather Halter, with a snap at the throat. Horse size. Will be for everyday use and it sits outside while my horse is in his pasture. So, not too pricey, but I don't want some India TackWholesale piece of junk either. =)

Have any recommendations on a great halter you've purchased?

If I were to get really picky, I like the hardware between the nose and chin to be square/slotted, not round.

Not this:

I know I've seen some links to nice looking halters on this forum. But of course, when I saw them, I wasn't shopping for a halter at the time! Thanks for your help!!

I won one of these halters as and award and loved it so much that I ordered another one. The leather is great quality. I don't think you will be at all disappointed!

This is a nicer halter at a much lower price than the Weaver Halter pictured in your post (the top one).

Perri's "Show" leather halter is well worth the price. Their regular leather halter has hardwear that will rust... The show halter has 100% brass hardwear.

First one on this page:

If you don't want to spend that much, Quinlin halters are excellent and their turnout halter is affordable.

Pinkston halters are also top of the line. You'll have to call or email to get prices, generally about the same as Quinlin's though.

Central Kentuky's are very nice too:

I was going to suggest Quillin as well. Good quality and price.

It can be hard to find halters that work out nicely. I just recently bought a new halter for my guy and had name plates added. Generally speaking you want a leather that's thick yet supple with lots of stitching.

Well, I ended up going with the Big Dee's halter! They also sold replacement chin pieces so I turned my old, broken halter into a grooming halter!!

Anyways, the halter arrived today and it's gorgeous! I got the nameplate and everything so now my horse looks like a Pro! Thanks for directing me to Big Dee's, Laura!

I'll have to keep Quillin in mind for next time!
