How to make a horsehair bracelet??
So, I know there are a ton of kits and websites out there where you can send in your horse's tail hair and get a bracelet made, but IMO they charge waaaaaaaaaay too much! Some of them I've seen are a simple bracelet, probably made using $20 worth of materials and they want $80-100 for it!!

Anyway, I want to make one using my mare's tail hair and just visiting my local Michael's or Pat Catan's shop to buy the materials but has anyone made their own before? Anyone know the "trade secrets" or best ways to put these together? :wink:

Subscribing! I bought one a while back and love it, but I'd like to make some with my own horses' hair.

Braided or hitched? (Looks like it's woven) I do some hitching, just for myself. I learned from a book. I can get the title when I get in from the barn if you'd like.

The reason true hitched stuff is so expensive is because it can't be machine reproduced and it is extremely time consuming. It takes me 4-6 hours to make a tassel or shoo-fly. I've seen some headstalls & rein sets for $15k! I wanted reins, so I'm teaching myself as I would never, even if I had it, spend that kind of cash on something just because it's pretty lol!
