Browband Headstall with Kangaroo & Silver #HS70
Description: The silver conchos and buckles on this headstall really pop next to the beautifully braided dark kangaroo leather with light kangaroo interweave. The hand engraved sterling silver is custom made by Vogt Western Silver Ltd. for Dennis Moreland Tack.
This headstall is made of 3/4 inch race track harness leather lined with oil-tanned lining leather. The throatlatch is 5/8 inch racetrack leather. Race track harness is a very dense, fine grained leather which makes it strong but flexible. Dark and light kangaroo are braided in the interweave pattern on the browband and cheek pieces. There are 3 hand engraved silver buckles on this headstall: 1 on each cheek and 1 on the throatlatch. All 3 have silver keepers and tips. The silver conchos on the browband and bit ends add to the beauty of this professional headstall.
The leather beneath the buckles is hand sewn together to prevent the buckles from slipping. The headstall has been edged, hand-rubbed, treated with Neatsfoot Oil and hand-rubbed again. The kangaroo is hand beveled on all 4 sides. This allows it to lay flat in a beautiful braid and feel smooth to the touch. The crown piece on this headstall comes in 2 sizes: 28 inches in length for those horses 15 hands and under and 33 inches for those over 15 hands (see dropdown for choices).
This is a real eye-catching headstall in the show pen and is hard-working on the ranch or trail. It’s made to fit a horse comfortably, function correctly and it will last for years.
