The "Year" of the Halter

 I intended to write a post about how 2020 was the "Year of the Halter" but the trend continued into 2021!

#1 - January '20  - Awarded a Leather Halter with award plate for Grand Champion Open Ranch Horse for the Buckeye Equestrian Events 2019 show series.  

#2 - August  - I finished a long-imagined project by designing, carving, painting, and buckstitching a leather halter noseband for Kevin.

#3 - August -  Awarded a leather halter with stamped noseband for winning season High Point Ranch Horse at the Union County Open Horse Show Series.

#4 - January '21 - Won a drawing through Stacy Westfall's blog and was gifted with a gorgeous leather halter from Weaver Leather!  Yes, Kevin LOVES to look at himself in the mirror!

#5 February '21 - Kevin and I signed on as Brand Ambassadors for our favorite hand-tied rope halter company: Knotty Girlz.  Every rope halter you've seen me use has been one of theirs.  I use them every day, all the time, and I even show with them.  If you are in the market for a great rope halter, check them out, and use discount code SILLYPONY10 for 10% off your entire order.  Halters, leads, reins, poppers, you name it, they've got it.  And it's always great to support small women-owned businesses!   

I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that while I only own ONE horse, I currently own 11 halters.... 4 rope halters (all Knotty Girlz), 3 leather halters, and 4 nylon halters including the leather noseband above.  Granted, one of those nylon halters was Junior's, and though I'll never use it, but I'll keep it always and forever.
