Although exact details and styling varies between models, all their headstalls include engraving and have 92.5 percent sterling silver plate trim. They have double side adjustments, and many are available in light or dark oil finish. Headstalls have matching trim on buckles, tips, keepers and Chicago screw heads at bit ends.

A Double S headstall or Western show bridle uses handcrafted premium leather. Some models have hand engraved sterling silver plate trim, while others feature etched cast sliver trim. The cast silver displays luster but not the brilliant shine of sterling plate. It also requires minimal maintenance.

If you or your horse is struggling with traditional Western bridles, a one-ear headstall may be the answer. Instead of a browband, these special bridles have a loop strap that goes around a horse’s ear to keep the bridle in place. This simple design is so easy to put on and take off and is a great choice for horse that are irritated by traditional browband bridles.

Western one-ear training headstalls, riding headstalls and work headstalls are available and are handcrafted from Grade A leather that is hand rubbed and oiled for an already broke in feel. Some headstalls are also hand-dipped in oil that gives them a longer lifespan and a gorgeous show-ready shine. The sliding ear loop allows trainers to adjust the position for horses with sensitive ears. If your horse is prone to shaking or tossing their head, you may want to get a one-ear headstall with throat latch that makes it more difficult for them to remove. Another option is a two-ear headstall that hooks over both ears for added security.

What is a Vaquero?: The traditional American cowboy of the late 1800s came out of the Mexican vaquero traditions. Vaquero are livestock herders, a tradition that originated in the Iberian Peninsula. They are still part of a Spanish tradition of horse-riding workers, brought to Mexico from Spain.

Mecates, Bosals, Hackamores: Superior quality 12 plait rawhide bosals are ideal for training or show. Nicely balanced to achieve necessary pressure to encourage flexing at the poll. Soft to the hand mecates form a perfect drape. A Hackamore headstall includes a noseband, of several different materials, a hanger or headstall and a mecate or reins. The bosal is a noseband, which is used along with the hanger, or headstall, which is placed over the horse’s head, behind its ears. The mecate is the reins. The bosal style hackamore is commonly used for training young horses. Traditionally, a mecate was made from horsehair, and is approximately 20 to 25 feet in length. You’ll also find the Billy Royal® bosal set with futurity headstall, with handcrafted Grade A leather and basket weave tooling. There’s Ultra® high-grade leather conditioner and bridle/halter bags for keeping your Billy Royal show headstalls in pristine condition.

For proper fitting of a bosal to your horse, you first measure from the inside of the horse’s nose button to the top of its heel knot. This will give you the right size, which will typically be between 10 and 12 inches. Shape the bosal and branches of the bosal to your horse for even pressure without any pinching or squeezing. Adjust the hanger for the proper position and tie the mecate, fine-tuning the hackamore adjustments as necessary.
