Seidel's Saddlery Belts

Hitched Horsehair Belts: $1,000

Each belt begins as a fine horsetail, then the hair is removed without harming or discomforting the animal. In fact, harvesting the horse hair is beneficial.
The hair is gathered into a "hank," as it is called at this point, and is then cleaned and sorted. The raw hair, some of which is colored with natural pigments, is then separated and twisted by weavers into "hair-pulls." "Hitching" with horsehair involves making stitches similar to half-hitch knots in a concentric arrangement on a wooden or wire dowel. This technique is the method for making the beautiful geometric designs in our belts. It takes about 1 hour to hitch about ½” - 1” length of belt, so it is a very time consuming process.
The horsehair tubes are flattened, hand tooled leather billets are added, and a distinctive "Hitched Horsehair" belt is created.

These patterns are available in 1 ½” straight, 1 ½” tapered to 1”. These belts are difficult to get as they are so time consuming to make. We always have a fair amount of belts in stock, but please call for availability of your favorite pattern!
