Hybrid Headcollar® Classic Nylon



Safer than a rope headcollar - more control than a nylon headcollar

Our best selling style! The Classic is a direct combination of a nylon headcollar and a rope headcollar, with a sliding ring for lungeing and noseband knots for control. Besides giving you a better response than any other headcollar, it also eliminates head twisting, knot tying hassles and stripped buckle holes while being safe for trailering, crosstying and even riding. Not just a training headcollar, the Hybrid replaces any day-to-day headcollar you are currently using.


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.


This particular style features:
  • Solid brass hardware - never-rust guarantee
  • Premium rope under carriage for enhanced strength, control and durability
  • Premium nylon that won’t stiffen with exposure to the elements

Add A Matching Lead Rope...
Our super strong ropes are hand spliced from rope that has been specially engineered for equine applications. This high grade rope is UV, salt and water resistant. It features extraordinary tensile strength thanks to its spliced construction and is woven to retain its original length with age and use. Finished with an easy open, one-hand trigger bull snap that is pull tested to 2,100 lbs. 100% hand made in our custom rope shop. 


What makes the HYBRID different from a normal rope headcollar or normal web headcollar?

The Hybrid has all the convenience, personalization options, and functionality of a traditional web/flat headcollar. It features the stability of the buckles, rings and snap of a flat headcollar, combined with the training ability and control of the rope headcollar, plus the added benefit of the sliding ring under the chin for clarity of signal. The Hybrid is the ultimate functional and training headcollar 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 headcollar, 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 nylon halter can match. No matter what kind of leading, training, groundwork or handling you're doing with your horse, the Hybrid will improve your communication.
