halter

  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    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...
  2. 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...

    Hi all So I have an issue. My darling little pony somehow shook off her rope halter that she's had on for ages (do not ask me how, she's kind of a genius) but now I cannot for the life of me find a halter that fits her! We've tried pony and cob, but don't want to go down to a foal because her...
  4. Horse Tack and Equipment
    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...
  5. Horse Tack and Equipment
    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%...
  6. Stallions and Broodmares
    I am wanting to breed my APHA halter mare who has never been show. 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...
  7. Horse Training
    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...
  8. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    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...
  9. Horse Tack and Equipment
    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
  10. Horse Tack and Equipment
    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...
  11. Horse Tack and Equipment
    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...

    2 weeks ago I bought 2 friesian girls -6 and 7 months old - they are my first horses and I'm so excited and pleased with them - but I have some problems I don't know how best to progress with...... We built them 2 stalls, each 3x4m, in a large airy barn - but it does not have direct access to...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...

    Ok, so I was very humbled by my horse today. Let me first say that my horse is head shy. Why? No idea. She is particularly nervous about her right ear. When she first came to us, we did not take her halter off because she would not let you put it back on. Eventually we worked to only taking it...
  17. Horse Health
    So I'm looking to adopt a Percheron mare and I have a few questions! Can a Percheron live comfortably on 1 acre of land? What kind of temporary structure do you think is appropriate to shield her from weather until I get my barn built? And would a standard adult sized rope halter fit her...
  18. Horse Talk
    I want to use a rope halter, but I'm worried about safety issues since they can't break during the case of an emergency. I thought about using lead ropes with a quick release snap, but they don't seem to make those... I also thought about only tying them to something like this: Blocker Tie...

    :happydance::happydance: I bought a show halter off eBay the other day. I'm in love with it! It's has the star like the Showman one I wanted. This one was half the price and is twice the quality! It's thin, so it won't look to bulky on my horse. I'm not a huge fan of silver and bling but I feel...

    I have so much stuff I need to get rid of! I've accumulated a lot over the years that I just don't use. Let my loss be your gain! I accept paypal and I ship with either USPS Flat Rate or Fed Ex, whichever is cheaper. I've tried to include pictures of almost everything. Let me know if you want...
