Glitter Bronc Halter

Do you want glitter with that???

Do you want tack that sparkles???

It’s time you meet my newest venture, Glitter by Horses & Heels. It’s leather tack hand painted with love & glitter that can be completely customized to your needs. This tack line is actually a joint effort between myself & my sister, Melanie (or Tina as we all like to call her). One night this summer around midnight we were driving home from a barrel race & I started talking about some glitter heels I wanted, trying to be entertaining & keep us awake. We transitioned onto the subject of tack & how while there was plenty of painted tack, hair on tack, & tack with large conchos, there wasn’t anything with straight glitter.

Of course this seemed like a challenge & the next day we rounded up some old leather tack & began testing many formulas of glitter because we knew the biggest challenge would be durability.  Eventually we found a combination that worked, we let the horses test the tack &  wear it in the pasture, stalls & I may or may not have thrown rocks at our tack to make sure that glitter wasn’t going anywhere. Our glitter tack is completely sealed so you won’t be getting glitter on yourself or your horse.

We are offering custom glitter pieces on headstalls, breastcollars, dog collars, bronc halters, spur straps & belts. We can do a variety of colors, patterns & there are two types of “glittering” that you can request; solid or glitter wash. Each piece is painted with straight glitter & let me tell you my sister & I are going to be sparkling for the rest of our lives because of this, it isn’t exactly easy to paint with glitter but the end result is amazing.

It was such a gloomy day when we took these photos & it is hard to capture how much each piece sparkles.  We are also able to paint your existing tack as long as it is clean & well oiled leather so if you have a tack set that you love but needs some extra sparkle, that can be arranged. Prices vary on a piece by piece basis but we are vary reasonable & want you to sparkle. I am going to update the Shop tab above so please check back for new pieces as we do have a few other items available.

If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact me!

Have a wonderful weekend!

    Congrats on your new venture. I wish you and your sister much success. So, are you in the process of making this a company of sorts or just a side project?

      Thanks Sharon, well it is a little bit of both. My sister & I are going to try & develop the line as much as possible & it’s an extension of Horses & Heels. In the coming year I will have a lot more time to work on it & I’m very excited to see where it goes : )
