If the standard sizes provided do not suit your horse, we will endeavour to help you get the size right. Some horses might need a smaller nosepiece and longer headpiece, and vice versa, and we are happy to accommodate these requirement directly through our shop.
Please ensure that you have the correct fit. The PVC is lined with neoprene padding to make it more comfortable but be aware some horses can be allergic to neoprene.
No, the PVC is lined with neoprene padding to make it more comfortable so it will not be suitable for a horse or pony with a neoprene allergy
You can leave the Stellar Headcollar on your horse 24/7 but be sure to check your horse several times in the 24 hours to ensure it has not slipped or is rubbing or causing pressure sores anywhere.
The breaking point is approx. 83kg
The breaking point is approx. 130kg
For safety measures, it is always best practise to do this, but so long as the Stellar Headcollar is fitted properly, the Stellar Headcollar will release if the horse pulls backwards applying pressure on the poll. An medium width bailer twine will break at average 78kg, and an equi-ping will release at an average of 80kg. The less pressure applied to the horse’s poll before they release, the less risk of injury.
Of course, the Stellar Headcollar was designed so that the headpiece can be replaced if it gets lost or damaged, if your horse regularly pulls back it is worth having a spare headpiece. You can purchase the Stellar Headpiece and spare keepers on our website
The weight chosen for the headcollar to release takes these scenarios into consideration. It should not open when the horse pulls back, unless the handler is applying a force of 83kg or more on the Stellar Headcollar.
The keeper must be on the tip of the flap of material, it is a keeper to stop the end of the headpiece being caught and pulling up. The keeper must never be put over the poppers as this will prevent the poppers releasing correctly.
The Stellar rope is made of nylon with brass clip and stainless steel cuff. It has a rubber end and a rubber sleeve on the cuff.
The Stellar Headcollar is made of PVC coated nylon with neoprene padding and stainless steel fittings.
The fly mask should be under the Stellar Headcollar, so it lays flat with the horse’s face.
The Stellar Headcollar and Stellar rope have been tested in the laboratory as well as extensively in the field. We have more information on the testing on our website
We recommend washing the Stellar Headcollar with warm water. If the poppers are filled with mud, use an old toothbrush to clear these – alternatively, the headcollar can be put into a wash bag and washed in the washing machine on a cold cycle.
