    Wow, very cool!!!
    I paid $25 for a custom made rope halter (no lead) - it is very basic, thin, pliable rope. I would probably suggest a price of ~$25 for basic with some embellishment, then go up from there. I expect to pay more for handmade stuff than the mass-produced stuff from China or India.

    Tbh if it was well-made and not going to stretch I'd pay $35+ for it over here - most of the rope halters over here in Australia are very poor quality. They're around the $15 mark and my horse stretches them in 15 mins of being a jerk, til they'd be big on a Clydie. I finally got a good one for $35 but it's skyblue which isn't very flattering on him and if I needed another I'd pay a bit more for one that was custom coloured. And I appreciate handmade items so I'd expect a premium anyway.

    Well a friend just enquired about buying the black and lime one, off the top of my head I said $25 and she was happy to pay that. I found a site that sells similar halters here in Aus, and their halters with fancy noses only, nothin else go for $30+. Obviously they have been doing it for a long time. So I think $25 is an ok starting point! I figure I coul break it down, so $18 for a plain halter, +$5 for a fancy nose, $2 for the Turks head above the fiador, $2 fo a turks head on the tie end, and $3 for braided beads on the cheeks. So a halter with everything would be $30. Does that sound fair? Making to custom measurements would be without charge.

    As I figure out how long it takes me and exactly how much materials cost per halter I can re-visit the prices.

    Evil, I know what you mean! They are the crappy polypropylene ones instead of polyester double braid. We have had them perish within 6 months due to UV damage.

    Yup!! Was so hard to find even a half decent one - this one has lasted 3 uses so far, which I consider a win lol. Brock needs them because he's awfully ignorant of a yank on a flat headcollar when he's raring for a fight with another male. Will be interested to see how long this one lasts though and if I still have Brock when it dies I'll be coming to you!

    As a business venture, here are some of your competitors (and pricing):

    Rope Halter with Nose and Poll Knots

    tammysropetack | eBay

    Modified Side-Pull Rope Riding Halter

    Side Pull Attachment

    I suspect a lot of folks on the forum would prefer to buy from a fellow forum member as long as it doesn't cost too much more.
