Brand answers horse owner’s plea.
When ETN editor and horse owner Liz Benwell made an appeal about headcollars via the magazine, she was staggered by the response.
She was after one with just one buckle on the headpiece for horses to wear when turned out.
The reason being that headcollars with heavy throat clips or fastenings on the noseband become lop-sided during grazing and can rub.
“I know exactly what you mean, mine has a bald patch” wrote one horse-owning-retailer. “I have the same problem because I have to leave a headcollar on my hard-to-catch horse,” said another ETN reader.
Meanwhile, Snowhill Trade Saddlery contacted us with a solution. Its Rhinegold Fieldsafe headcollar has no buckles at all…
Instead, the adjustable nylon straps are secured at the headpiece and noseband with quick-release touch tape. And these clever headcollars come in turquoise, tangerine and raspberry as well as black.
