    First impressions

    This headcollar looked really high quality and really well made. The throat clip caused a split of opinions on the yard — some staff disliked it as it is fiddly to undo in an emergency, while others loved it as it only requires a push to close.

    Overview of performance

    This headcollar fitted well — it was full size, but plenty large enough for my horses’ with bigger heads. It was easy to adjust, with buckles on both sides of the headpiece, and it came up really nice when cleaned.

    Tamsin’s likes and dislikes

    The clip caused some differences of opinion, but overall it was a really well-made headcollar.


    A nice all-round, smart headcollar — if you like the clip.
