How do they compare - to say Walsh or Tack Shack of Ocala halters? I'm in search of a couple new halters, and was considering ordering them from Bartville (along with a few other things, of course ) Any photo's would be greatly appreciated.
Mine has help up really well to summer hosings, etc. I have the 3/4" one that looks great on my petite mare. I never clean it or anything and still looks great after 2 years. The brass hardware has held up well and the leather is still soft. No issues with stitching. I will be buying all halters there. And I'm going to have them make a narrow one in black with nickel for fancy times. (now that I've said all this the spring on the throatsnap will probably break tomorrow, lol!)
I have 3 of them. My favorite everyday halter is the 3/4" single buckle havana halter. The leather is super soft and supple. I clean it about every couple of months and condition it with leatherbalsm. I have the chestnut 1" as a show halter since I love the color of it. And that one sits in my trailer so its neglected as well and very nice leather. I clean it up if I am going to use it and it cleans up great.
I also have the 1" rolled throat halter and that is a spare to my everyday halter. Yes, I have a bit of a tack collecting issue, but the price and quality of these halters cant be beat. And my theory is since I only get to go to Bartville once every few years, I should stock up !!! The halters do run true to size, the bridles on the other hand, are a completely different story
Only halters I have. I wouldn't say they "stretch" much but---leather is quiet nice and solid---but the Horse size fits most horses. I do have one big guy in an Oversize halter....He's 17.1+ with a big head
Their halters hold up to quite a lot of abuse. I get the triple stitch ones....but they are near by me so I just go in a look and pick out what I want. I love their grooming halters too.

I have 5 of thier halters: 2 grooming, 2 triple stitch with throat snaps, and one with a fiixed chinn under my shipping fleeces. Love them and love how they have lasted. Highly reccomend and I want to shop there again!
I am on my phone 90% of the time. Please ignore typos, misplaced lower case letters, and the random word butchered by autocowreck.
me too! I've been dieing to have them make me a 3/4" black with nickel halter. They have them in 1", but maresy wants a "going to town" halter and 1" overwhelms her face. Plus I always love just browsing around and seeing all the lovely things I want!
