Silver always look striking in the show ring! You have just found the perfect tie :)
Why purchase a zipper tie? Let's be honest, not all people know how to tie the perfect Windsor knot on the fly! You have so many other things to consider when getting ready to enter your comp so the LAST thing you need is to be fluffing around trying to get your tie on point! Zipper ties are the perfect solution, they are pre-tied and ready to pop over your head, zip up and PRESTO, you're done! Time to show those judges what you've got ;)
That is why zipper ties are SO POPULAR in the equestrian industry.
