Spanish term or phrase: cabezadoras
This is a footnote from a text on Argentina's participation in editions of the International Penitentiary Congress held in the late 19th C. The footnote lists items made by prisoners that Argentina sent an exposition held as part of the congress::

Un par de riendas con sus cabezadoras (?) correspondientes

Since it is a list, I can offer no further context.
Thanks

neutral  Taña Dalglish: No Daniel, the "cabezada", (if your term headstall is correct) is not attached to the reins. Effectively, the "headstall" is an element of the bridle and is only the part over the ears to which the cheek pieces are attached (see my reference comments).

Reference: Ref.

Reference information:
If another word for cabezadora is cabezada, the word is "bridle".

cabezada, la ~ (f) (arreo de cabezabrida)
bridle, the ~ Noun

The reins are attached to the bridle by various methods, either by a coupling as in the case of double reins, i.e. a pelham, for instance.

Headstall. The term headstall is used primarily in western riding, and refers to the piece of equipment that goes on the horse's head and attaches to the cheek pieces, which hold the bit in his mouth. By itself, a headstall is not a functional piece of equipment. It is a piece of the bridle.

BTW, I have ridden practically all my life from a young age, and I am more conversant with British terminology than I am with US/Western, although I understand the "rodeo stuff", cutting, etc., etc.

Headstall
The term headstall is used primarily in western riding, and refers to the piece of equipment that goes on the horse's head and attaches to the cheek pieces, which hold the bit in his mouth. By itself, a headstall is not a functional piece of equipment. It is a piece of the bridle. It is the central piece of the bridle and you cannot have a bridle without a headstall. The headstall can be as simple as a plain piece of leather or nylon that goes behind the ears and has cheek pieces that attach to the bit on either end. Most western headstalls feature either a brow band or a split ear design. Some also have a throat latch. It is normal to have additional pieces added to the headstall to make a more complete and functional piece of tack.

Bridle
Bridle is the term used commonly to describe the device that is used to hold the bit in the horse's mouth. A bridle consists of multiple pieces, including the browband, throat latch, noseband, headstall, cheek pieces, bit and reins. When you purchase a bridle, you can expect everything you need, except the bit, to be included in the sale. When you purchase a headstall, you are getting the headstall itself and the cheek pieces that go with it.

Headstall Versus Bridle
In some western riding disciplines, the bridle minus the reins and bit occasionally may be referred to as a headstall. In English riding, the bridle almost always is called a bridle and the headstall, or headpiece, is identified only as the piece of the bridle that goes behind the horse's ears and connects to the cheek pieces.
