Smile Homemade Horse Gear

Horses are expensive, so I was wondering if there were any things you could make instead of buy. I am intirested in making things like crops, halters, lead ropes, and so on. If you have any links or ideas, please tell me.
Thanks!

Rope halters are easy. I don't even bother with the fiador knot because I whip them up at matches when anyone wants one.

With a rivet press (very small, quite inexpensive) and some strap goods, you can make breast collars, reins, bridles, cavessons, etc.

My lunge whip came from a willow bush of which I have plenty. When it starts to dry out I get a new one. Tangosgirl, it's pretty hard to make stuff any cheaper than what you buy it for as the makers buy in bulk and get it for less than half of what you will pay. When you make your own you do have the option of customizing it.

I make my own halters, leads, bridles, and soon to try breastplates and mohair cinches. I use yacht rope for halters and bridles, and braided para cord for the rest.

I've heard of people making their own leads from yacht rope. A while back someone posted a link with instructions on how to splice it back on itself that looked quite involved. I figured I'd leave it to the professionals
