One Buckle Headstall with Rawhide & Black Interweave #HS60

$274.99 $219.99


Description: The cheek pieces on this headstall are accented with beautiful hand braided rawhide with black kangaroo interweave. The ear piece is also covered with braided rawhide. The headstall is made of doubled and stitched 5/8 inch race track harness leather lined with oil-tanned lining leather. The stainless steel buckle is beveled and has a braided rawhide keeper. The leather beneath the buckle is hand sewn together to keep the buckle 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 braiding is stunning.

Available with your choice of slot concho, concho, or tie string bit ends (see dropdown).

Matching Breast Collar available!
