How to Attach a Nameplate to a Halter, Bridle, Martingale or Breastplate

Required Tools: will need a leather hole punch, hammer and pencil.

Steps:
1. Unwrap your nameplate and identify the rivets as having two posts and two caps.
2. Center the plate where you would like it ; mark its holes with pencil.
3. Use the hole punch centered on the pencil marks. A good quality hole punch with appropriate pressure applied should be able to penetrate even thick leather halters.
4. Push the rivet posts through the back of the tack so the posts are pointed toward you.
5. Put the nameplate on rivet posts.
6. Place rivet caps onto the posts, and tap the caps with a hammer.

Note: If you do not feel comfortable installing your own nameplate, we are happy to help. Bring your plate and tack into your local Dover Saddlery store for assistance. Your local leather repair professional or cobbler may also be able to assist you.

How to Choose Between Types of Halters
Here's some facts to help you decide which type of halter best meets your needs.

Leather
  • Classically attractive in a range of leathers from economical to premium.
  • Preferred by many for ability to break and free a horse before serious injury occurs if the halter catches on an object.
  • Parts of leather halters, once broken, can be replaced or repaired.
  • Can have padding and contours for horse comfort; fancy stitching or other embellishments for added style.
  • Can punch holes if needed for the perfect fit.
  • Can be fitted with a monogrammed halter plate for a custom look.
  • Easily cleaned with tack cleaner; last for years with proper conditioning.
Breakaway
  • Preferred for turnout by many for the ability of the halter to break and free a horse.
  • Colorful nylon or cotton-blend webbing is paired with a leather crownpiece, tab or fuse designed to break if the halter becomes entangled with an object.
  • Replacement parts are inexpensive and easy to find, so the halter can be put back into service quickly.
  • Can have an engraved halter tag attached for identification.
  • Web parts can be cleaned with soapy water and gentle scrubbing with a soft brush.
Nylon
  • Colorful nylon webbing is durable.
  • Not considered ideal for turnout because if a horse were to become entangled, the webbing does not break, which places an entangled horse in danger of severe injury.
  • Can be cleaned by soaking in soapy water and scrubbing with a soft brush.
Rope
  • Durable rolled poly or cotton-blend rope construction.
  • Intended for ground work and horse handling only; not suitable for use in shipping, cross-tying or turnout.
  • Require correct tying to secure on horse.
Shipping
  • Designed for transport.
  • May be made of either leather or nylon with a breakaway tab and is encased with soft sheepskin fleece to protect the delicate skin of a horse's face.
  • Sheepskin helps wick away moisture to reduce sweating/discomfort under straps.
Grooming
  • May be made of leather or nylon.
  • Intended for use with supervision during grooming only; can easily slip off or become caught on an object.
  • Intentionally lacks throatlatch and jaw piece to allow for easy cleaning of the jowl areas.
