    Default Good leather halters

    What are some good quality leather halters for $50 or less? If anyone has a lightly used one that they are selling I would also be interested.

    Check out Quillin halters, they have several price points, probably their turnout halter would be in your price range excellent quality and you can add options if you want. There was a very recent thread on this with some good suggestions, do a search and I'm sure you'll find it.

    Looks very nice except it only has a single crown buckle. I find the ones that don't have a buckle on each side of the crown never hang evenly or fit as well. My 2 requirements for a halter are double crown buckles and a snap closure under the throat.

    Default halters

    Weaver has a nice triple stitch halter that is reasonable. I believe it only has one crown buckle. It does have a snap on the throat latch. They hold up well and are a nice dark colour.

    I am quite pleased with the halter I got from Big Dee's

    However, it was on sale when I got it for $45 with a free brass name plate.

    I have heard NOTHING but good things, though, about Quillan's halters.

    Ah, well that would make a difference The only one's I have ever owned came over with the horses from Ireland, but didn't have a snap closure. "P

    Tack Shack in Ocala, same halters as you get in KY, but Ocala prices. I think I got the sales halter w/english chin, throatlatch snap added and nameplate for less than $55, and that is a triple stitched, double crown, rolled throatlatch halter!

    ETA - make that 51.75 for the full size sales halter!

    Default LOVE my Quillen's halters!

    I've used them from foaling halters up.

    My long yearling has the turnout halter - double buckles, throat snap, adjustable nose and brass nameplate and I paid $42 for it.

    Got one for my horse for christmas in '06, getting him the same one this year. Wore it everyday, shipped everywhere in it, snap is gettting loose now, so instead of having to buy him one in a few months, I asked for it for christmas! Definitely a great halter for the price.

    I've been very, very pleased with the quality of both my Quillin halters. Every time I pull out the Sale halter to go to shows, I get comments on how lovely it is. I've got a turnout halter that's going strong after a lot of abuse and a broken crown (horse's fault, and why I wanted single-ply for a day-to-day halter). The turnout was about $45 with a double crown, throat snap, and single-line nameplate.

    The quality is wonderful, though probably not better than some other quality manufacturers, but the customer service when I emailed about replacement crownpieces is why I'll remain a customer of theirs.

    My favorites are still Walsh, but most of them aren't in your price range. That said, I also have heard nothing but fabulous things about the Quillin halters (if I didn't already have the Walshes, I would get Quillins) - and their nameplates a lovely, too!

    I have Walsh's and Quinlin's, and while the Quinlin's are not quite as flashy they are REALLY NICE, and there nameplates are the best out there! They are really engraved and heavy so they don't start to run after 6 months... unlike Warners.

    The triple stiched halter from SmartPak is $53 and is soft/supple straight out of the box. Double buckle crown and snap on the throatlatch. Have one for my mare and getting one for my BM for Christmas.

    I've seen the Chicks Saddlery one in person a few years ago, and it was a very nice halter! I am a Quillens nut though, I've had three of them, all three are beautiful!
