I cut the kangaroo leather strands from a single hide to a heavy 1/8 inch to give the herringbone braid a sturdy look and feel, the braids are a 1/4 inch in diameter and braided without a core. For the crown piece and throat latch I have left the ends with tassels to give a little fancier look and I've used kangaroo for the wear leather on the bit connectors.
This piece is made to order and can take up to 3 weeks for delivery. Each headstall is made of over 250 feet of leather so I like to use a single hide for the headstalls and will generally order a hide in specifically for each custom made piece. The basic colors available are black, brandy or whiskey (tan) but other colors are available just drop me a knot and I'll send you a list.
