Kensington halters are even stronger than leather halters. Kensington spares no expense in the safety and control of your horse. 1 thick nylon webbing is doubled over making it double thick and is even triple folded at snaps and rings. Double stitching ensures the multiple layers dont come apart, and box stitching makes the halter extremely durable at sensitive points. Textilene mesh lines the cheeks and noseband for durability and style. Holes at the buckle are heated to prevent fraying. Hardware is brass plated. Padded nose. Included is a matching 9.5 x 5/8 poly lead.
