  1. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    Greetings! I cant seem to find the name , much less any video, for splicing together the two parallel rope ends on the poll strap for the halter. Basically im trying to have the two ropes merge into one at the cery end of the poll strap. Attached are some pictures of what im trying to achieve...
  2. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    Hi all! Long time no see! As per usual I’m curious about a piece of tack. Usually when I go out and ride I’ll simply take off the halter and put on Dahlia’s bridle and lead her via the reins. Of course I try to avoid doing this too much since it’s not preferable and can be uncomfortable with...
  3. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I have two horses together out in a large pasture. It’s springtime and both are becoming difficult to catch. I’ve tried the “walk down” method and now it’s worse. If they even see me they start going the other direction, halter or not. I’m not sure what else to try. I’ve tried being patient and...
  4. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    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...
  5. Horse Breeding
    So I've been horse shopping for a hot minute for younger horses to add to the herd. One filly I've been offered was bred for halter. Sire was Initials Only. Now I'm not really looking for a halter horse, and this horse even as a yearling seems to have all the hallmark conformation issues of AQHA...
  6. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    I recently bought my horse a new halter but it seemed like the only personalized halters you could buy were standard nylon and I got a nylon breakaway. I don't necessarily want to get a nameplate for it but would like to have his name stitched on it. Does anyone have suggestions on places I...

    Hey SO I'm showing an miniature horse Appaloosa at the moment and I'm unsure on what colour halter to get him:runninghorse2: All the others have like Tiffany halters and gorgeous halters but I'm unsure what to get him. Also when he does hunter and the trail classes he has a nylon (not 100%...
  8. Stallions and Broodmares

I was wondering what I should look for in the stud? and if you know of any QH or Paint halter studs at stud for under 500 please let me know. Also any tips would be appreciated since it will be my first foal as well as my mares...
  9. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Just got a new horse last week, she is a 10 yr old QH mare. She is a very sweet horse. The lady we had got her from had a halter that was too small on her and rubbing her nose really bad. I was spending alot of time with her and decided to try to switch the halter to a bigger one, she was fine...
  10. General Riding queries
    HAIII :cowboy: So, like the title says, can I? I'm looking into buying a horse soon and I don't really like bits and Hackamores seem like a pain to train your horse in as well. XD (not to mention EXPENSIVE) If you can, do you prefer nylon or rope? Also, do you think 2 lead ropes or clip on...
  11. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    Hello everyone! I am looking for a Western show halter (like the QH ones) for my Arabian. I'm not looking to send 100's on a halter, as I only show halter about 3-4 times a year. Something cheap will be OK with me! Located in Ontario, Canada! Thanks!:D
  12. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    Hi guys I've been making Arabian show halters & sets for years and although in the start it took me a while to figure out all the techniques I now have a good customer base. Arabian halters can be expensive, but are well worth the investment. But due to this expense some arab owners can't...

    Hey, I take lessons every Saturday, work at my barn on Thursdays and I'm going to be riding twice a week soon. My question is should I get my own halter? My barn has a halter for every horse but I find its always a big scramble trying to find the one for my lesson horse. That halter I'm looking...
  14. Horse Shows
    I figure this may be a common question, but I can't find it specifically asked. I am going to an open 4H show and I'm showing in western halter for the first time. My mare's mane isn't pulled. It'll be our first show together so I was going to braid her mane for our hunter classes. I was...
  15. Horse Shows
    So I want to show my 18/yo quarter horse at the upcoming fair in my town. She isnt registered though. So I'm having problems with name issues. This is my first horse show and I plan to do halter considering it's my horse's first show too and I don't want to stress her out too much. I just want...
  16. Horse Shows
    Last year I bought a weanling colt, and was going to show him but he ended up getting contracted tendons. Finally his legs have straightened out, his coat is shiny and gleaming, and I feel he is ready for his first show. I, however, am not. I don't know anyone that shows in Halter, and I'm...
