    Hey everyone! I would like to start a business making custom rope halters but I can't find any super cheap places to buy rope in bulk from. I would like to start off buying at least 50 to 100ft of a variety of colors, so the customer has lots of color options to choose from. After doing some...

    I will be working my horse in a tie down occasionally just for tune ups and I'm wondering if there is any reason I couldn't just use a rope halter under my headstall hooked up to a tie down? Any reason why not?

    I want to use a rope halter, but I'm worried about safety issues since they can't break during the case of an emergency. I thought about using lead ropes with a quick release snap, but they don't seem to make those... I also thought about only tying them to something like this: Blocker Tie...

    I've been trying to introduce my gelding to a rope halter, and he does okay until we come to a patch of grass, and all he does is eat. He ignores everything I do to get him to pick up his head.

    Hi! I recently bought a 6 yr old Friesian/Shire gelding cross. He's a big wonderful guy. In the 3 weeks I have had him he has been doing a very well but with a few huge exceptions. He is a giant chicken. If I take him into the indoor arena he gets very nervous. The first time he went in...

    Okay, so I've been thinking that everyone should put on here something they REALLY want to brag to people about that they've accomplished with their horse or whatever, because I always want to brag about things my horse and I have done, but nobody ever really wants to hear it, so here's...
