I am deffinately leaning toward the mane hate mecate. I was just curious about the yak hair. Just to see if I was missing out on anything. The mecate I have now isn't a great one. Just one step above a hemp rope.
these ropes are a 4 strand twisted off of les Vogt website. The bit I got from him for Christmas is a tad to narrow for my horse. Just trying to figure out what to do about it now. I can get 2 new mecates for the price of the bit I'm returning. Well see.
