Anyone who has horses realizes that they’re mischievous creatures, seemingly bound and determined to destroy tack, blankets, stall guards, wraps, bell boots, and sometimes even themselves. Although Two Horse Tack’s beta biothane halters, bridles, and breastcollars are super-durable, horses do occasionally manage to snap or exhaust hardware on our pieces.
For just this reason, we wanted to make sure it was easy for customers who chose snap ends for their reins to replace those snaps if they should break. That’s why we thread our snaps through the reins and buckle the reins together, rather than threading them through and stitching them down. We can replace hardware in tack which is stitched down (email us if you need a repair!) but it takes longer and can be slightly more expensive than replacing the snap yourself.
As shown here, you simply need to undo Conway buckles (if you’re not familiar with Conway buckles, see this tutorial here), thread on the new hardware, and rebuckle. Simple, right? Now finding that lost bell boot/blanket strap/fly mask is a whole other venture…
In the course of dealing with customers who ride in lots of different disciplines, we’ve found that some of them are huge fans of Conway buckles, while others may never have seen them before.
It’s a little tricky to explain how they come together, so we put together this little video to show you how easy and secure they are to use:
