    Default Double buckle crown or single buckle

    Preferences for the crown of your halters?

    Do you mean monocrown or normal crown? I don't know what a 'double buckle crown' is.

    Double, because the crownpiece breaks or wears out I can just slide another one on there without needing a halter repair.

    It also gives a wee bit more wiggle room on sizing for those pesky emergencies, like, "Hmm, look, a loose pony in the road. All I have is this horse-sized halter. I'll just put it on the top holes on each side, which will make the halter fit and will make the pony look like Eeyore."

    Double. They can be adjusted more plus if the horse breaks crown it can be replaced easily.

    Thanks for the clarification I prefer the double buckle for everyday halters and single buckle for show halters. The double buckle is more adjustable, and when my horses' inevitably break the crown piece, I can salvage the halter by punching more holes or buying a new crown piece. If you break a single buckle crown, you have to buy a new halter. However, I do think the single buckle is more attractive, so for shows I prefer a thick leather (less chance of breaking) single buckle crown.

    Double, just easier to fit and replace.
    I am on my phone 90% of the time. Please ignore typos, misplaced lower case letters, and the random word butchered by autocowreck.

    Double, definitely. I like the adjustability.

    Support your local tack repair shop and have them install a new crown strap...

    Double, for sure. I work at a barn, and it sure helps adjusting for growing young horses.
