A leather headcollar like none other! Real control, a built-in lungeing caveson, breakaway functionality and rich leather in one headcollar.
The headcollar's unique design means it won't twist your horse's head like a normal headcollar or cowboy rope halter. This means the Hybrid is a LIFETIME wardrobe essential for your horse.
He won't progress out of it with training because it is actually more comfortable for all horses as it is made of soft materials and doesn't twist their head, so it is more ergonomic than any other headcollar on the market - which is why we patented it!
The Hybrid Headcollar isn't just for the young, emotional or naughty horse - it is for any horse that you feel deserves better communication with you and a more comfortable way to go about daily life in his most lived in piece of tack.
Triple stitched leather. Smoothed and darkened edges and the versatility of double buckle poll adjustment. Will breakaway at poll in case of severe pullback. Solid brass hardware. UV coated rope for longevity. Choose from oil dipped mahogany leather headcollar with sand rope or black bridle leather headcollar with black rope. Yearling, Small, Average, Large and Draft.
The patented Hybrid Headcollar® is a direct combination of the traditional flat headcollar and the natural horseman's rope halter, with the addition of a signature 180° sliding ring and noseband knots to allow for the precise application of pressure and leverage - resulting in unbeatable lightness in the headcollar without the use of a stud chain. It eliminates head torquing, poll injury, knot hassles and stripped buckle holes while being safe for trailering, crosstying and even riding.
Pony Club approved.
USEA approved for the FEH yearling and 2 year old division.

A headcollar that ...
combines lungeing convenience,
is safe for all uses
and has REAL control.
Granted an official patent for its innovative design, the Hybrid Headcollar® is the first major revolution in horse halters in 25 years and has been put to the test under the widest possible range of horse handling conditions on three continents.
It is a direct combination of the traditional flat horse headcollar and the natural horseman's rope headcollar, with precision leverage thanks to the addition of a signature 180° sliding ring and noseband knots. Besides giving you a better response than any other halter, it also eliminates head torquing, knot tying hassles and stripped buckle holes while being safe for trailering, crosstying and even riding. In either leather versions or nylon versions fitted with our breakaway headcollar fuse kit, it is also breakaway in case of pullback.
It is made to our exacting specifications, completely repairable, not disposable. Our best selling style, the Nylon Classic has solid brass hardware and a rope undercarriage. This same style is also offered in a triple stitched leather halter. Our Economy Halter offers a thicker rolled nylon undercarriage and brass plated hardware.
What makes the HYBRID different from a normal rope halter or normal web halter?
The Hybrid has all the convenience, personalization options, and functionality of a traditional web/flat halter. It features the stability of the buckles, rings and snap of a flat halter, combined with the training ability and control of the rope halter, plus the added benefit of the sliding ring under the chin for clarity of signal. The Hybrid Halter is the ultimate functional and training halter in one convenient design! You can cross tie in it, it won't tighten if a horse pulls back in it, it won't torque a horse's head to the side like a rope halter, so is both more comfortable for your horse and more effective for training because it mimics the application of pressure he will later experience with a bit. Your horse will find it difficult to lean on, so it can deliver a precision of cue that neither a rope, nor web halter can match and makes you and your horse's job easier. If you follow natural horsemanship, or do groundwork with your horse, you will see a remarkable training difference with this halter. If you lunge your horses, you won't have a need to to switch the rope of your lunge line based on your horse's direction of travel.
