Halters are essential when handling horses. You have the choice between nylon halters, halters with synthetic or lambskin and halters made of leather. In addition to normal halters for leading and tying, there are also special halters for foals, safety halters and knot halters.
Matching halter for Cob, WB and Bangs
Regardless of whether you want to lead your horse to the paddock or to the grooming area or you are going to a tournament: a halter is one of the most important utensils when dealing with the animal. It has to meet various criteria. A halter must fit your horse exactly so that you both get along well with it. It is best to decide on an adjustable model with a pin buckle, which you can adjust individually to the size of the horse's head. If you own a Thoroughbred or an animal with a narrow head, size matters Cob ideal. It is designed more for smaller horses and usually also fits gauge block ponies perfectly. If your animal is smaller, the pony halters are your first choice. Hanoverians, Hollsteiners and other large-framed horse breeds need a warmblood-sized halter. Unfortunately, there is less choice when it comes to halters for draft horses. There are special sizes here. But you can also do it with a halter in X-Full or WE try.
There is usually also a color matching lead rope for the halter. These ropes usually have a panic hook. If your horse is startled when tying it up, you can simply open the panic hook even under pressure. This reduces snagging on the halter. As an alternative for very boisterous horses, there are lead chains. These consist of a rope with a loop and a chain with a carabiner at the end. This is then passed through the rings on the halter and under the horse's chin. This gives you a little more control, for example when leading to the pasture. Such a chain is indispensable for most stallions, which is why they are also called stallion chains.
Sheepskin or faux fur halter
Models with faux fur are ideal for four-legged friends with sensitive skin. Faux fur is a soft, artificial lambskin that is attached to the inside of the noseband and top. It protects your darling from chafing even during wild games in the paddock. Of course, the fur can also be made of medical lambskin. The cheek pieces and the head piece are often padded, as this is where the most friction can occur.
There are special lambskin or faux fur halters for transport, in which all parts are completely covered with faux fur or lambskin. These halters are also particularly suitable for sensitive horse heads, for example after clipping.

Leather halters impress with their elegant look and are therefore often used at shows and tournaments. However, leather halters are more expensive than other horse halters and also require a little more maintenance. Matching leather cords have a snap hook rather than a panic hook. The carabiner usually has a predetermined breaking point so that the horse cannot hang itself when it is tied.
Halter for foals
Foals should be accustomed to the halter and lead with the rope early on. This belongs to the foal ABC. Of course, foal halters are significantly smaller than normal halters. Headcollars for foals can be made of leather, nylon or perlon and are often softly lined and adjustable in size. Please make sure that your foal is never tied up alone, otherwise it may panic and injure its neck.
