Rope Halter and Lead Rope

Hello, everyone.

I am in the market for a new rope halter, but I am unsure about the brands and the quality. I am looking for a thick, strong horse/cob rope halter without extra knots. What rope halter do you recommend?

I am also in the market for a new lead rope, but I am unsure about what type of rope. I do not use snaps with rope halters, so it is literally just a rope. My current lead rope is a regular lead rope with the snap cut off and end burned. I ride in the rope halter with the lead rope. I believe that my current lead rope is too thick (making it hard to tie) and too short. I am looking for a strong rope that is 3/4 inch (1.9 centimeter) thick, no less than 12 feet (3.7 meters) long, and is okay with water. I have read good things about marine sail line for boats or all-weather climbing rope. What type of rope do you recommend?

Thank you.

I personally would buy from Ridge Creek FREE SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS!* - Ridge Creek Natural Horsemanship Tack, they have great deals, and have many sales/auctions on FB.

I have loved mine from y knot tack. She'll custom size if needed and you tell her the type of rope and thickness or she can advise you. You can have her add knots or not as well as where to place them and number.

I have one of her lead lines for lunging my drafts and love it too.

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.

I really like Silver Tip rope halters. They are sturdy and hold their shape well. I do not love their lead ropes. Too light weight and not long enough.

All I can say is I greatly prefer a stiff halter over the soft ones. And I like a metal finished 'nib' on the end of the tie piece. Also , cotton ropes are more comfortable on your hand, less likely to slipped give rope burn, but can be heavy when wet.
I hate leadropes with metal clips if used for training.
