When it comes to Western headstalls and reins, Mary's Tack and Feed is the knowledgeable authority with great selection and service. It can be confusing, especially to those new to riding, to determine exactly which pieces of tack go where as well as what type is best for your needs. Thankfully, Mary's carries an extensive inventory of Western tack that includes headstalls and reins.
First off, there are four main types of headstalls. These are the one-ear, the two-ear, the browband and the bosal hanger. Like with most things, the most popular type of headstall tends to vary at different times. However, the one and two-ear are mainstays and the styles you'll usually see in the show pen. Within each type, you'll see great variation, depending on if it's a trail headstall or a Western horse show headstall.
All of Mary's Tack and Feed's leather headstalls are crafted from high-quality, durable leather, including Hermann Oak Harness Leather.
