I bought this item because it was on sale, and I had purchased the Abetta Vaquero Knot Headstall and wanted it to match. I didn't have super high hopes for it because of the price. I was pleasantly surprised that when it arrived in the main that it looked quite nice. I absolutely hate the clips that connect the reins to the head stall but that is my personal preference. I decided to give these a try and see if they will change my opinion. They feel very sturdy and look great with the matching head stall.
