Two Horse Tack Nose Buckle HalterMany bloggers have already reviewed this product, but I'd like to add another to the mix!
Griffin is modeling the Arab-size 3/4" nose buckle safety halter and lead in turquoise.
I love this color on him.
While his head isn't quite as refined as other horses, this halter helps bring out some of his finer features.
As with the halter-bridle, the workmanship and hardware on this product is very solid.
I had my doubts about the beta biothane lead, but it ties well. And while the snap isn't as heavy duty as most lead ropes, it certainly does the job. However, I wouldn't trust it with a horse who likes to test things on a regular basis as I believe it would "give" quickly and easily.
My absolutely favorite thing about the halter though?
It's practical nature for bridling a horse that may not be easy. (Not Griffin, for the record, he's such a total doll about bridling.)
This halter slips off easily once a horse is bridled.
An effortless and simple process. This halter is an amazing tool to have in your tack locker for green horses or those who need a simple reminder lesson. I'm excited to have it along for future training ventures.
And with those images, we've segued beautifully into the English Convert-a-Bridle!
Two Horse Tack English Convert-a-Bridle Bridle
Once again, I love the "dark blue", which looks much more like royal blue, on Griffin. This is the 3/4" width, once again in Arab size.
This bridle is a neat concept. It's both an English and a western headstall in one.
The noseband slips easily through the bridle, right below the cheek and above the bit.
It buckles under the chin as most English cavessons do.
But if you so desire, it can be easily unbuckled and slipped free of the bridle.
And presto, in no time at all, a western headstall!
Once again, as with other products from Two Horse Tack, this bridle is very well made. The hardware is solid, the stitching is well done, and the colors are beautiful. If you're somewhere between wanting an English bridle but also utilizing a western headstall often, this is a great option for you to consider. It's perfect for trail riders who like to dress the part of whatever saddle they may be using that weekend. Bonus? The removable noseband could be used as a dog collar in a pinch or for attaching a bundle or something to your saddle - perhaps that raincoat you suddenly don't need because the skies cleared for the day.
Two Horse Tack English Breast CollarAnd finally, as you've noted in numerous photos above, Griffin is also sporting the Two Horse Tack English breast collar.
It's construction is pretty standard for an English breast collar.
And, recognizing that I sound like a broken record, it is a well-constructed product with solid stitching and hardware.
As I noted in my review of Two Horse Tack's halter-bridle, this product compares very closely to competitors like the Distance Depot in construction and hardware. Differences include that the standard THT breast collar attaches directly to the saddle while DD's uses clips. However, for an additional $3, you can select the option for THT to include clips to their breast collar. Even with this addition($43 instead of $40 without clips), this breast collar is still considerably cheaper than the DD product ($67). So, if you're on a budget or would simply like to save some money, I'd recommend the THT breast collar.
THT makes a wide variety of quality tack for those with a need for beta biothane or perhaps a desire to add some color into their lives. From western to English to endurance to just around the barn, THT has a wide variety of beautiful, well-made, affordable options for you to choose from. I think you'll find the hardest decision to getting a THT product is picking a color. 😉
