Now, it’s Brego’s fault he grew his head so big, but it surely is not his problem that normal tack doesn’t fit! After I learned to craft in leather, I learned to appreciate his big brain. Before that… Gosh. When obtaining even a basic halter turned into an international adventure, or a costly custom fit purchase… Not so much! Although I usually make tack from scratch, modifying tack to fit is also one way to go about it.
The halter didn’t get fully botched, halters without throatlatches are often sold and marketed as “grooming halters” (worked in the industry, sold quite a lot of them!), so consider it a well thought through transformation. I’m very happy with how it turned out!
