Beta Headstall


Beta headstalls are made of a synthetic material that combines the strength of nylon with the easy care of vinyl. We use only the very finest beta material which is produced in the United States, Genuine BioThane USA. Our Beta will not mold or mildew, absorb odors, dry out or crack and it wipes clean is seconds. It is particularly popular with trail and endurance riders, since the material requires no maintenance and can be subjected to virtually any conditions without being affected.

Beta is a leather-like synthetic composed of a nylon core with a vinyl coating. It is impervious to dirt and sweat, and will give you years of use with no maintenance required.  The material stays supple in freezing weather and doesn't dry out or get brittle with age.  Beta is durable and easy to clean - just dunk in a bucket of water, swish around and hang to dry.  It has a slightly grainy surface and low-sheen surface, which gives it a leather-like appearance. Beta is a little heavier than nylon.

 Available in Medium (Average Horse) Small (Ponies and small horses)  Large (Warmblood)  and Draft. Draft size is not available in Chestnut.

There is plenty of adjustment in Dr. Cook Bitless Bridles, however if you would like to be certain your bridle will fit correctly (proper fit is important) we suggest you measure and use the sizing chart.

How To Measure

Noseband: Measure 1 1/2 " to 2" up from the corner of the horse's mouth. From that point, measure the circumference of the horse's nose.

Headstall: From the same point (1 1/2 " -  2" up from the corner of the horse's mouth), run your tape measure to the very top of the poll (to the point right between the ears) and double that measurement number. This will determine the size headstall your horse needs.
