It’s taken a few months, but I’ve finally finished this showmanship halter.
I’ve been wanting to put this set of Rio Rondo hardware to use for a while now. This is the “Rawlins” design.
For some reason I default to halters when I’m struggling with making tack, thinking that they will be an easy project to work on. Ha!
The difficulty, for me anyway, is fitting it correctly. Showmanship halters fit much more snugly than regular halters, so it was tricky trying to get each strap the right length. I always make them too long or too short.
I’m not sure if it’s a perfect fit, but I think it came together nicely, and is definitely an improvement over previous attempts!
