I reviewed a beta halter from Two Horse Tack earlier this year and and they approached me to do another review for July.
I have been looking at a different color scheme for Prophecy once he "proved himself" at a ride, and now I got the opportunity early! His current set of stuff is from Tesla, with a few tweaks to make it his (like a browband replacement for his bigger head and new rope halter).
I really like the Quick Change Snap on types of bridles for endurance use. It leaves a halter underneath to tie with or lead with, and no messing with clips to put a bit in/out. Especially helpful if you get easily confused and feel pressured for time! (something I learned with Traveler was how difficult his bit was to tell it if it was right side up or not!) Being all beta/biothane, it is really easy to keep clean. Dunk in water or wipe with a cloth; worst case toss in a dishwasher if really grimy! (non heated dry cycle)
We got a horse size, since he has a bigger brow than Arab sized, and I sent in the measurement for corner-to-corner for the snap on part to make sure we had the right length. A Myler Combo bit tends to sit higher, so there needs to be lots of adjustment for its placement too.
I was able to adjust it well for his Myler Combo (though I need to remember to loosen the curb a little next time), and still have room to play. Of course, best of all it looks great on him! The beta is easy to trim up later if I choose, and can always poke more holes with a leather punch.
