If you did not get to make it to the Congress to shop or if you did not find what you were looking for there, it’s time to check out BillieAnn Sexton’s hot line of halters made from Ed Hardy belts. Her custom halters add a rocker edge to the western world, with studs and conchos not used by other halter makers. She makes them in her free time on the way to rodeos, so she knows what barrel racers are looking for. Below, Sexton answers questions about her line and how to get a hold of one of these hot halters!
