Slide Ear Headstall with Rawhide & Black Ring Knots #HS59



Description: The Slide Ear Headstall with Rawhide & Black Ring Knots is made of doubled and stitched 5/8 inch race track harness leather lined with oil-tanned lining leather. The cheek pieces are covered with beautiful hand braided rawhide with black kangaroo ring knot accents. The ear piece is also covered with braided rawhide. The combination of stitching and braiding makes this headstall stunning on any color horse!

There are beveled stainless steel buckles with braided rawhide keepers on each for easy adjustment. The leather beneath the buckles is hand sewn together to keep the buckles from slipping during adjustments. This leather is hand-edged, hand-rubbed, treated with Neatsfoot Oil and hand-rubbed again. The rawhide is treated with rawhide cream.

How it works: Race track harness is a very dense, fine grained leather which makes this headstall strong but flexible. This is the best leather I can buy. The lining leather feels good against your horse’s face. Because the leather is split to the correct thickness before being doubled and stitched this headstall is not thicker than a single ply leather headstall. This makes it more durable and longer lasting than a single ply headstall and it has that good feel in your hands and on the horse. The impeccable braiding is done by a master of rawhide braiding.
