Cattle Show Halters
Traditionally styled leather cattle show halters are handmade and handstitched in heavy British leathers (4-5mm thickness) with British made fittings. These halters are strong, very smart and sure to enhance your cattle in the show ring. I use black and dark Havana coloured leathers to make the halters, which are all individually hand made and entirely hand stitched for strength and durability.
Leather cattle show halters are made in several styles from the traditional decorated bull halters to the finer rolled leather halters. They are available in a range of sizes so use the guide below to choose the most suitable size for your cattle.

Sizes and styles can be tailored to your specific requirements if necessary, please contact me to discuss. Extra nosebands and head straps are also available on request if you’d like spares in different sizes.
There are also a range of leather cattle leads in various lengths and widths to match the halters, with or without a chain end.
You have the option to include an adjustable buckled slip jaw-strap, with a strong ring for attaching your lead on the left side of the animal’s head. It can be unbuckled for easy of use and cleaning but the short buckled strap cannot be removed. This is a popular option if you prefer a leather strap rather than a chain for control when leading cattle.
It’s so important to take care of your leather from new with a good Leathercare product – it will supple up the leather and keep it in great condition for years of use.
Cattle halters are generally made to order so please allow up to 28 days for delivery (usually sooner though), but may be longer if nickel-plated fittings are required.
