I just tied my first rope halter and I'm really proud of myself! I'll post pictures of my handiwork soon! It took me three hours.
3 hours is great for your first try. The first one is always the hardest.
Cool! How much rope did you need? I wanted to make my own, and this one website said you needed like 25' of it, and with rope prices, it's cheaper to buy a ready-made one!
The red halter in my pics of Blu is homemade. Atually it only took me about an hour to get what I wanted with a little help finding out directions with out leader. (It was at 4-H Horse Boot Camp - greatest camp ever)
i left it out in the rain once and it bled so now its not as bright and it shrunk. :roll: btw...any ideas to get it back to normal size for Blu's head?
Thanks guys! It took three hours because my mom wanted to tie one too so not only was I fixing my mistakes but hers too! hehe. I only had to use 20ft of rope, my horse has a smaller arabian head. We bought one of those packs of 50ft feet of rope for like 3 bucks and its great rope too, its soft and pliable but it also can hold its shape which is nice. It want to make more but we only have two horses hehe. Thanks. Here are some pictures. I hope he likes his new halter, even though its got pink on it 8)
EDIT- The toughest think was figuring out the double overhand knot and keeping your measurements even x.x other than that its a breeze
That looks great! Much better than my first attempt, I used much thicker rope and it was not as pretty. The thinner rope works much better.
That's awesome! :D I'd love to make one for Lexi, hehe maybe for her birthday! :)
Where do you find your rope? I want some non-prickley stuff, and when I went to the hardware store, the stuff was around $1/foot...!! I would LOVE to make one of these myself, so any hints would be wonderful!
Do you have a home depot in Canda? That's where i got my rope from. I think it only cost me $3 and i was able to make 2.
