Money is a significant factor in most people’s decision-making–all day, every day. It’s more important at some times than at others, but it is important. Very, very few people have so much money to spare that they don’t give cost any thought. Because of this, it’s often tempting to buy things cheaply if we think it will save us money over any significant period of time.
However, it’s best not to buy cheap horse halters. In a short time frame, cheap might work fine. After time passes, however, the problems begin to show themselves.
Cheap halters are made of inexpensive materials. That doesn’t always mean they’re bad materials, but it does mean they are likely to wear and tear much faster. The more you use the halter and your horse wears it, the faster it will degrade, and you’ll be forced to either continue with a shoddy halter, constantly trying to find ways to mend it, or buy a new one, which defeats the purpose of having gotten the cheap one, originally.
These materials are often not great for your horse’s skin and coat. As they get filthy and worn, they also irritate your horse’s muzzle and ears. Your horse is more likely to develop skin problems in those areas with a cheaply-made halter.
Some of these things could be avoided if you stock up on cheap horse halters, or make a halter out of some rope. However, you could get more than one well-made, attractive, lasting halter for the same price and save yourself, and your horse, from the many issues that could arise from relying on cheap ones.
