My Headstall and Reins are Beautiful....
18 July 2012
I received my headstall and reins today. Oh my goodness, they are BEAUTIFUL. What wonderful work you folks do. I am very glad I got the headstall. The only thing that doesn't fit on it is that the chin strap (whatever you call that) is a little too long so I'll have to punch a new hole. The browband is perfect. I have a ring snaffle on it now and it is on the 3rd hole from the bottom on the side adjustments. With my other bit, I'll bet it will be 3rd hole from the top. Couldn't get much more centered than that. I wasn't sure how I'd like the addition to the reins. I knew I'd like the length. I rode with them in the arena for about an hour and I like them too. That addition gives more weight down by the bit which is nice. I've got them expanded to full length. If I shortened them I'd probably want a little keeper down there to keep the end in place but I doubt I'll shorten them. Thank you so much. My horse has never had a headstall that really fit properly. If I get a chance I'll take a picture this weekend and e-mail it to you.
Thanks again. And thank your staff please.
PS: I love how easy it is to use the buckles. I've got arthritis in my fingers (which is what prompted these reins) and it's a struggle sometimes to change out bits or reins with other attachments. This is super simple.
