Rope Halters..

Well, I have loved the look of them on horses for the longest time, but never really needed to go out and buy one. So, I was looking online a few days ago, and found some good videos of how to make them step by step on youtube. So while I was at TSC today, I just happened to find myself in the rope/string isle. And I bought some rope..... and went for it.




Took me about a half hour to make, because I got confused on a few parts. But it turned out awesome, and now I am going to make matching gaming reins for this halter once I get some leather to tie the clips onto.

Let me know what you think!!


I will post pictures of it on Candy Cane as soon as I get out to the barn next to try it on her!!

WOW , that is great and only a half hour to make? I watch a trainer at a horse expo tie the rope halters and it took him maybe 5 mins and he was explaining it the whole time. I was like ....wait.. how do you do that?
Great job , love the purple too

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

Nice! I love making halters! It's like sewing something and then wearing it only more instantly gratifying. And it's a good skill to have since sometimes you need a halter in a pinch... Making halters is so much fun. Heehee

I love the purple! I wish my farm store had pretty colors like that! =D

Wow! Great job!

Yeah, I have seen people make them before and it took them just a few minutes. And like you said, they were explaining everything and I was like....HUH!?!?!

Thanks!! There were only a few different colors at TSC. A red and black, red white and blue, and then the purple. I think I will be going back and getting some more colors though.

Me too. Hoover has a head in between a horse and a pony, so his rope halter is really loose.
