Description: CUSTOM HALTERS Have you ever wanted a halter for your horse in a certain color, with an overlay pattern that you just can't find in the tack stores? Now is your chance to customize the perfect halter for your horse! Start by choosing your base color. This will be the main color of your halter. Then choose an overlay pattern. This can be a different solid color, for example, lime green overlay on top of black nylon. You can also pick a cool design, such as zebra stripe overlay on top of hot pink nylon. Then decide if you want this halter to be a breakaway halter. This would mean the halter has a breakaway leather piece, that will "break" if the horse gets caught up on something. This piece is replaceable and should not ruin the entire halter. You can also choose to have a snap for taking the halter off without unbuckeling the crown piece. Visit my website for more information!
