#1. STANDARD ROPE HALTER
This is our standard rope halter. It is constructed from quality 6mm Australian Made Marine Rope. This rope has a very soft feel to it, is strong with minimal stretch and good UV Resistance and is a rope that is specifically made for use in equine equipment.
The halter is made with a Fiador Knot at the chin and the correct True Lovers Knots. The rope ends are spliced, whipped and heat sealed for security and long lasting wear.
#2. ROPE HALTER with EXTRA NOSE KNOTS
This is our standard rope halter with 2 extra knots over the noseband like that preferred and used by many professional trainers. It may give a little more feel or 'bite' to the halters action and may help in training a horse that likes to push into or through a halter.
These are available in all sizes and the same colours as our standard rope halters.
#3. HORSEMANS BUDGET ROPE HALTER
These halter are the exact halters that we use everyday on our own horses. We have a number of these that we have been using for in excess of 3 plus years and have not had one that has deteriorated or broken under any circumstances. This is the exact same 6mm rope as our standard halters are made from but is a more economical rope to purchase in bulk so we are able to pass on the savings to you. These are great everyday halters that will hold up to allot of work. Regularly sold to pleasure riders, professional trainers, breeders and natural horsemanship people.
Available in our new Horsemans Budget line colours of White with blue fleck, white with red flack, white with black fleck, white with green fleck or white with purple fleck.
Extra knots can be placed over the noseband for an extra $2.00 per halter.
#4. FANCY WOVEN NOSEBAND ROPE HALTER
This halter is exactly the same as our standard halter except that it has a woven noseband which gives it a little extra pizazz!!
#5. BRAIDED NOSEBAND HALTER
This halter is also the same as our standard rope halter but with a braided noseband which makes it a little different and certainly a stand out. The braiding is done with parachute cord from the USA and is available in a range complimentry colours.
#6. HEAVY DUTY ROPE HALTER (constructed using 8mm rope)
These halters are exactly the same as our standard rope halter but are constructed from 8mm rope instead of the standard 6mm rope. These are heavy duty halters, excellent for teaching horses to tie up, as they are a little wider they don't quite have as much 'bite' to them but are extremely strong and durable.

#8. BRAIDED NOSEBAND HALTER AND LEAD SET

Halter and lead set pictured in blue and purple zigzag with a purple lead rope, braided noseband and blue and purple striped tassel.
#53. TRAINERS SIGNATURE SET
We have put this set together specifically with the trainer in mind. Trainers don't necessarily want flashy colours they usually just want something strong, practical and serviceable that will fit and work for a number of different horses at different levels of education. With that in mind we have come up with this set which consists of a standard halter, a 10 foot training rope with leather popper and a removable/ replaceable heavy duty clip. We know how frustrating it is when you have what is otherwise a perfectly good rope that has a broken clip on it that you cannot replace, we also know that clips can be convenient but you don't always want the weight of one knocking your horse under the jaw. We have found the 10 foot length is a good one for starting young horses under saddle, it will comfortably tie back onto the halter and be of a good length to make a set of starter reins. The 10 foot length is not allot of rope to drag under your feet or hold comfortably in your hands yet when used as a lunge rope before mounting allows you to keep a good distance from the horse should it kick out. Other rope lengths available upon request.
The leather popper on the end of the training rope can be hand stamped with either your name, your horses name or your business's name at no extra cost, approximately 8-10 characters in length.
These sets come in the standard colours of Halter:- White with Brown Fleck or Brown with White and Beige fleck, Rope:- Solid White or Brown
A NOTE ON LEAD ROPE CONSTRUCTION and EYE SPLICES.
An Eye splice is basically the loop that is put into the end of either a lead rope or reins whereby you can incorporate a clip or to form a loop to attach to a halter etc. As with all of our ropes we only use the correct class one eye splice, we have never and will never cut the core out of the rope to form a loop as some makers are doing, the popper ends are back spliced and both ends are hand stitched. This stitching is in no way integral to the strength of a correctly spliced rope, the stitching is merely there to hold the outer and inner core of the rope even to prevent possible puckering. If you purchase a rope that has had the core cut from it to form the loop the stitching is all that is holding that loop together! While it is certainly faster and easier to form a loop or attach a clip by cutting the core from the rope the integrity of that loop comes down to the strength of a line of stitching and in an emergency situation or if your horse is pulling back you really do not want to be relying on a line of stitching to stop your horse from possibly flipping over backwards. So regardless of where you purchase your equipment from please ensure that you are getting a product that is correctly constructed with safety in mind.
#10. STANDARD LEAD ROPE
Our standard lead rope is made from 12 or 14mm Australian made marine rope and are either 6 or 8 foot in length. These can be made with or without a snap. The loops are constructed using the proper class 1 eye splice, we do not cut the core from the rope to construct the loops as this practice significantly weakens the rope and is dangerous. The ends are finished with a back splice and a rope flapper which is also whipped and heat sealed.
#11. STANDARD TRAINING ROPES
These are constructed using the same principles as our standard lead ropes, the proper class 1 eye splices, the ends are back spliced with the rope flappers whipped and heat sealed. We can also construct these training ropes with removable snaps so that the snap can easily be replaced if need be.
The 4 different styles of clips that we offer are pictured here on these training ropes.
#12. COMMUNICATION STRINGS
These are constructed from 6mm rope with a loop at one end and a leather popper at the other, we also put a small loop on the popper end so that the popper can be easily replaced. These are a standard 6 foot in length and are available in your choice of colours.
RIDING HALTER/BITLESS BRIDLE
#13. BITLESS BRIDLE/RIDING HALTER
These are based on the design of the rope halters with a difference of 2 rings added at the chin to attach your reins. Some horses really appreciate being ridden without the bit in their mouth, our young horses are all started in either these or just a rope halter with a lead rope attached. We have endurance riders that regularly buy these from us and they all swear by them.
This design is a superior design from just attaching your reins to the fiador knot as you can use a little more direct rein and it is easier for the horse to understand at first which direction you are asking of it. The only hardware on these is the 35mm rings of which can be left off if you prefer.
We also offer these as a set with matching 9 foot stockmens reins. These reins are a standard 9 foot rein with clips spliced onto the rein for ease of attachment or removal, (customised lengths available). When you are done riding with these simply detach your reins and clip the 2 rings together for your standard rope halter set up.
