Any one know where i can get this type of leadrope ?

Hi every one, I am looking for a lead rope that has a clip that can come on and off the rope. And a lead rope that has very strong and durable rope, which is tightly bound together so it doesn't get stuck in the baling twine when I tie up my horse. It can't be to short or extremely long, and its a bonus if it has a 2 leather* straps on the end to give a nice whip lashing if im in a dangerous situation, ( for ex. A horse is charging me in the paddock, or dogs a chasing me in the paddock ). And an extra bonus of it has a rust proof clip that isn't extremely heavy.

Please put in a link to where I can buy it

Found some more:

Blocker Lead Rope - Lead Ropes from SmartPak Equine
Sold out, but has a popper and it looks like the snap is removable


Basic Cowboy Braided Leap Rope - Statelinetack.com
Popper, believe snap is removable

Mustang Tight Braided Cowboy Lead - Statelinetack.com
Comes without snap, you could find one that you like (rust resistant etc.)

Anything less than 10 ft is too short, IMO. I want to be able to remove the snap, and some of those don't work. I prefer a heavier leadline because I may use it to kind of throw some energy down the line, and heavier sends a feel better. However, of those posted so far, this it perhaps the best choice:

Dura-Tech® Comfort Soft 10' Braided Brown Lead in Lead Ropes / Lead Shanks at Schneider Saddlery

It is 10.5 feet long and snap is removeable.

Just realised that there r only cheap lead ropes in the popular horseland stores and local stores down here in AUS.

ok woops im so lazy, I just read that I can get it internationally delivered. I think I might buy more than one lead rope so I have a spare pair, and think that if I buy in bulk I can save some money on the shipping.

Oooo I will have to buy one longer because I just started doing some groundwork and my lead rope needs to be long enough for my horse to lunge around me :) Good thinking tinyliny I do need a longer rope for groundwork, bareback riding and ect.
