So, I've decided that I want to try and make some of my own rope halters and whatnot. The thing is, I can't find where to find affordable rope!
You need about 20 feet of rope to make a halter (for a normal sized horse). Everywhere I've looked for nylon/yacht rope is very expensive - to the point that, for the 20 feet of rope, it'd cost me way more to make it than it would just to buy one already made. I got mine, a basic but well constructed warmblood sized 4 knotted rope halter, for 17 dollars (and the guy's got to be selling at some sort of profit.)
WHERE can I get rope this cheap?! I haven't found it for less than $1.20 a foot, and I am NOT going to essentially pay $20 to make a rope halter. This is getting frustrating.
Those of you who also make them, where do you get your rope from?
