Slide Ear Headstall with Rawhide & Black Interweave #HS58
Description: The Slide Ear Headstall with Rawhide & Black Interweave is made of doubled and stitched 5/8 inch race track harness leather lined with oil-tanned lining leather. It’s accented with beautiful hand braided rawhide ear and cheek pieces with black kangaroo interweave. The stainless steel buckles are beveled and have braided rawhide keepers. 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.
Available with your choice of slot concho, concho, or tie string bit ends (see dropdown).
