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 Measure Your Horse for Halter

Horse halters come in a range of sizes: foal, miniature horse, small pony, large pony, cob, horse, oversize and draft. Halters are moderately adjustable within each size, and higher end halters allow the noseband, throatlatch and crownpiece to be adjusted independently.

You should measure your horse’s head before you go halter shopping so you can purchase the best-fitting halter available.

Noseband: Place one end of the tape measure at the midway point between your horse’s cheekbone and his nostrils. Stretch the tape measure across the nose to the corresponding point on the other side of your horse’s head. Record the measurement for your horse’s noseband area.

Chin portion of noseband: Starting at the same point between the cheek and the nostril, stretch the tape measure underneath the horse’s head to get the measurement for the bottom portion of the noseband. Record the measurement.

Crown: Place the end of your tape measure directly below your horse's cheek bone on the side of his face. Stretch the tape measure around the horse’s head to the corresponding location on the other side of his face. Record the measurement for the crownpiece of your halter.

Throatlatch: Place the end of your measuring tape several inches behind the horse’s eye near the top of his throat area. Measure underneath the throat to the corresponding area on the other side of the face. Record the measurement for the throatlatch area.

Note: Sizing varies between manufacturers, and not all manufacturers offer halters in all sizes.
