No, sorry. I'll see if I still have it on the saddle and try to remember to get one in the next few days. I'm working out of town so it may be the end of the week. Do you need it before then?

Same here, plus maybe 10 degrees... definitely not riding weather yet and we've got what's left of 20 inches of snow!

I usually keep a lead rope just coiled and tied to one of the rear rings with a leather thong. When I am trail riding with my son, I keep a halter and lead on his pony under the bridle, with the lead rope attached to the halter and the other end tied to the saddle horn. That way if I need to pony him he can just hand me the end of the lead rope (he's 7 - so it's not like we are mountain climbing when I ride with him.)

An adult toy store?

Wouldn't it be uncomfortable to ride in?

On a more serious note . . . Try leather boot laces.

Bwolters, at our local Orscheln's or Tractor Supply Co they have small bags of rawhide strips/strings for replacing saddle strings. They come in black or brown or mixed. My friend uses them for his thongs, just cuts to length he wants and cuts a 3" or so slit lengthwise in each end, puts the saddle horn through the slit in one end, wraps the thong around the coil of the rope enough to keep it from uncoiling. Then the second end goes over the saddle horn, too. Actually, this is what gave me the idea for the dog collar thing I have - I just used the dog collar to wrap around the coil of rope and fastened it, then used the snaps to attach it to saddle rings. (Still haven't forgotten about the picture when I'm back in the barn...)
