The Angus Barrett Saddlery Collar Strap is designed for situations where the hindquarters of the horse need to be restrained or the leg lifted for the horse's own well-being and for the safety of its handlers and other horses in its proximity (for example, when shoeing or when a horse requires veterinary treatment).
The Collar Strap is made from a combination of two webbings, both made in Australia to our specifications. The webbing is also specially chosen for its soft-touch to help prevent bruising or marking on the fetlock. Heavy duty, chrome-tanned harness leather is then double stitched for reinforcement around the buckle holes along the collar.
The Angus Barrett Saddlery Collar Strap offers two points of adjustment:
The collar buckle features a stainless steel 7mm pin for added strength under pressure and a solid roller to reduce the risk of the buckle jamming in the event of a required release.
The sliding buckle has been designed by Angus Barrett Saddlery to hold the strap securely and quickly, but also to prevent jamming and to ensure easy release. It is solid stainless steel and has a specially added plate to ensure it locks correctly when pressure is added.
The Collar Strap can be used on the near or off-side of the horse. We recommend the use of our pure wool Fetlock Strap to help prevent rubbing and bruising on the fetlock. Felt, rather than sheep-skin or other materials, is chosen because it is durable and less likely to collect burs, sand or mud.
