CA rope halters

Why are the CA training halters so darn expensive. I had it suggested to me to use one of them instead of the regular halter and lounge line I was using. So I went onto the down under website and was shocked the item I wanted was almost 70 bucks. Is there a substitute that can be used? I looked at some on ebay that were advertised to be "like" the one CA uses but don't want to waste money on something that is cheap and no good.I did see a previous post about making your own but I'm not very handy at that type of stuff.

From what I can tell CA halters are just normal rope halters with extra knots on the nose....

Is the $70 with or without the lead? If it's for both maybe you could just get the halter and use a cheaper lead?

Looks like a rope halter with two or three knots on the noseband, to me. You should be able to find one at your local tack store or on eBay for much cheaper.

Gigem, you can't get just the halter. You HAVE to buy the halter and lead together.

Cause ga ga eyed house wives line up to buy them at $70 a piece.

They are expensive because they are carrying the CA name! They in fact are no better than a $10 extra knotted rope halter you can find on ebay.. he claims that the "stiffness in his halter is what helps with training, mines more on the floppy side (when not on a horse ) and it works JUST FINE.

$70 is flipping rediculous for any halter! (show halters being the exception) and lead combo..craziness right there!

Thanks I'm ordering the one from chicks saddlery. It's too bad that CA and the NH have such overpriced equipment. It just seems like the old time snake oil peddlers.

You're paying for the name - nothing more. They are that expensive because enough people have drunk the kool-aid and are willing to pay that much. Only if/when people stop buying them at that cost would the price ever lower.
