Stellar Head Collar
A stylish, comfortable head collar with a patent pending reusable safety system, which releases when needed to prevent injury to the soft tissue and nerves on the face, poll and neck.
While the Stellar Head Collar may have a ‘leather-look’, it does not need the same care as leather head collars.
To clean it, simply wipe down with a soft cloth or sponge and warm water.
Do not use soaps, detergents or oils as this can damage the weatherproof material.
Take care to keep the stud fasteners clean and dirt free. In the event of a release incident, check the stud fasteners for damage. If you’re unsure or in the rare event of damage, please get in touch.
The size of each Stellar™ Head Collar is based on a standard bridle size, however if your horse or pony needs a more tailored fit, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
This head collar is not designed to open in daily normal use or when horses are being led (figure 1).
The head piece is designed to open when poll pressure is greater than the release point set by the keepers. The position of the keepers increases or decreases the release point. 75% of accidents happen when the horse is tied up so the pulling back and up will increase pressure on the poll (figure 2).
By moving the headpiece keepers downwards, the force required for the head collar to release increases. In laboratory conditions, in position A, the head collar released on average between 50-60kg. For position B, it was between 80-90kg. Ideally, position A should be used as much as possible, however if there is a situation where you need it to release at a higher force, move the keepers downwards to position B.
