This headstall is so easy to use and maintain. Made with stainless steel Ds and 1 inch Biothane Beta 520 it is flexible and has a nice feel to it. It has a 3/4" super grippy rubber strip just under the noseband to help it stay in place and give you assistance when your horse needs a little extra "whoa" power. We do not say that it will control your horse. That is up to your horse, training, handling and circumstances. This is not a safety devise. At this time we are only offering this in basic horse size. Please contact me if you would like to order a custom size.
