Need a pattern for a horse halter rounded throat latch

4 posts in this topic

Hey all:

I am a long time hobby leather worker and restorer, but am hit with a project that I need to as for help. (My daughter is an (English) rider and has advanced to a regional show, and needs a nicer halter).

The place I am stuck is making the throat latch- it is rounded and has flat ends to attach to a ring at one end, and a snap at the other.

I have a rein rounder in my tool box (I picked it up a decade or two ago figuring I would need it someday<G>), and have found a good tutorial online how to lube and round reigns, etc...

My question is the ends- does anyone have a pattern or a drawing of  the proportion of the folded over English point that goes around the ring?

I hope this question makes sense-  I know what I am asking, but am having a hard time putting it into words<G>

Many thanks

Hank

Its how I make my rounded throatlatch and works fine.

Hope this helps and sorry I cant seem to get the pages such that I can attached them.

If you want you can email me - or get the book electronically from Tandy as they are great resources.

Here are a couple of links you can watch - not exactly want you want but method

pretty much the same you probably will know just remember to add the size of the clip/snap

to the made up piece of work. 

Hope this helps JCUK
