  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I currently have a hobby business of making paracord reins, halters, dog leashes, etc. I recently had a customer asking me about mecates, which I have never made. As I was researching paracord mecates, I came across a lot of stuff relating back mohair. Is it worth pursuing? If I started...
  2. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Okay, I have a question. I had a riding lesson for the first time in about 3 years (I've done lessons on and off for almost 20 years now) and something came up that I guess I've just never heard before. Right now I'm still in Western and my instructor informed me to always keep my reins in the...

    I was wondering what people's thoughts are on draw reins, my trainer uses them to help teach a head set. But I have never heard of other people's opinions.

    Does anybody know the name of those tubes that people thread the reins through to supposedly help keep ponies (I guess you could use them on horses, I've only seen ponies) straight? I was thinking they're called something like "straightlines" but I can't seem to find them online. I'm doing a...

    HAIII :cowboy: So, like the title says, can I? I'm looking into buying a horse soon and I don't really like bits and Hackamores seem like a pain to train your horse in as well. XD (not to mention EXPENSIVE) If you can, do you prefer nylon or rope? Also, do you think 2 lead ropes or clip on...

    I'm expanding my gaming gear due to finally having a horse that does barrels really well. I've been practicing mainly in split reins being that they are what I have at the moment, but we plan on competing soon, and I want to be sure I find the best reins that work for us. So what kind of...

    I have been trained in dressage for the entirety of my riding life. However, I train with school horses not my own personal horse. He is not trained in dressage and I don't really want him to be, so I mainly just hack around, and have fun with him. Often times I dabble in western with him...

    Hey Everyone, A few months ago I noticed my horse hangs really heavily on my left rein when I take up contact.
