By Emily Heggan Subscribe to RSS | August 10th 2012 | Views:

If you are looking for a new halter, there are plenty of different styles to choose from. Whether you are looking for an English or Western show halter or just one for every day use, there is one that will surely fit your needs. Halters range in size from mini, cob or pony, average horse to oversize. The halter sizes vary due to the maker of the halter and the weight of the horse. The most common halter types are nylon halters, leather halters and show halters.

Nylon Halters

Nylon halters come in a variety of styles and colors. Most nylon halters are for every day use and turnout. These halters are durable and can withstand some wear, tear and rough play. Some halters are customizable and come in a wide range of colors. Some you can also have made with all adjustable pieces on the halter, such as adjustable throat and crown pieces. If your horse is going to be in turnout or in the haler for a good length of time, you might want to consider a padded halter for comfort or one with a break-away crown piece for safety. If you are not sure what size to buy, check your horse’s weight and confirm it with the sizing chart below.
