The Antarès Sellier France team, in collaboration with Cédric Angot, worked on a simple and innovative solution to create a more serene environment for the horse and rider: the STRESSLESS halter.
The elastic on the headpiece and cheek-pieces is strategically placed to limit as much as possible the «stop» phenomenon that can occur during head movements on the tie.
Antarès “Stressless” halter is made in French full grain leather especially selected and developed for Antares by the tannery Arnal in Rodez France. Width and density of the hides are strictly controlled and the vegetable tanning process, based on chestnuts, is specially developed for bridlework to insure its longevity.
Skins are stretched while drying to avoid lengthening. Except from this operation, the leather grain is not altered during tanning process to guarantee its exclusive softness and resistance.
It might happen that the halters ‘leather does not seem as smooth as on some other products. A treatment with a nourishing balm will help to conceal the appearance of skin irregularities and will give the leather an attractive aspect.
