Here's a new idea: traditional leather show lead can be used with and without a chain. Beautifully tooled 6' leather lead end with a silver plate buckle set that can hold the short (18") chain or a simple snap, both included. Fantastic for a showmanship horse that works without a chain, or buckle on the chain if needed. The chain is special too - only 18" long, so it doesn't need to be run up and down the halter's offside cheek - just snap it to the lower halter square and run under the chin to your hand. Fits nicely under the chin without excess length. Choose 1" or 3/4" width in chocolate or natural leather.
