Stellar Head Collar

£59.95 £49.95

 

Safety shouldn’t be a choice horse owners need to make. With Stellar™, there is no compromise.

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.
UK Patent Application No. 2000234.1.

Tested in the laboratory for a consistent release point, and practical field trials for everyday use.

Patented Release System
As a piece of everyday equipment, we should be able to trust our horses’ head collars to be fit for purpose, but also to release in the situation of a serious incident.
Stellar™ has a specially designed headpiece with adjustable press-stud fasteners and keepers on both sides of the head collar. The headpiece releases when needed to prevent injury to the soft tissue and nerves on the face, poll and neck. By moving the keeper, the force it takes for the head collar to release changes.
This patent pending Safety Release System has been scientifically tested to provide measurable and consistent results. Thorough testing in both laboratory conditions, as well as everyday practical situations, provides the necessary balance between safe handling and horse safety.

Materials
Stellar™ is made from PVC which gives it its durable and weatherproof qualities. Neoprene padding on the headpiece and nosepiece aid comfort, especially if worn for long periods of time – please note: it is not suitable for horses with a neoprene allergy. The durable stainless-steel fittings are suitable to be out in all weathers.

Description

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.

Care:

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.

Figure 1

Use: 

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).

Figure 2

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.
