Note: Rope & leather prices have increased drastically this year. As such, product prices have also had to increase. Torn between going with lesser rope to keep prices down, I opted to pay more for the same, quality rope that has become the NHS trademark..
GENTLE ROPE HALTER
All rope halters can be hand tied to your specifications
All are made using the finest quality 1/4 inch double braid marine rope you can buy. There is no hardware to injure the horse. The halters are soft, not rigid, making them more useful as a training tool as this allows the horse the chance to find a comfort zone away from the knots.
All end splices are sewn and the ends are buried to prevent the "unraveling" effect that some other rope halters experience. They will not fray or come apart even after years of use. For information on using the rope halter and tying the latch knot, go to the Training - Haltering page.
The fiador knot is sewn to prevent it from collapsing or falling apart, a common problem with this knot.
PLEASE....take time to look at the link below to make sure you're ordering the correct size for your horse. Halters can be made as "tweeners" for a horse that falls somewhere between sizes.
Below is a general start for finding your horse's size.
Rope halters are available in these colors
Rope Halter $20.00
PARACORD KNOTTED NOSE BAND GENTLE ROPE HALTER
Available in black paracord only over your choice of color halter. These do take some of the training potential out of the rope halter, but they also make the halter more comfortable for horses who already understand the concept of a rope halter. For trail riders, the paracord can be untied and used for emergency purposes.
Available in these colors
Knotted Nose Band Rope Halte $29.00
GENTLE SIDE PULL HALTER
A Perfect way to ride with the rope halter without using a mecate. The rings, available in brass or steel (you choose), make it easy to attach any rein with a clip.
Two styles....the double nose knot has the ring placed approx. 1" below the standard nose knot while the single nose knot design carries the ring directly on the nose knot.
Shown on left (top for some mobile users), double nose knot, on right (bottom for some mobile users), single nose knot...ring at chin option no longer available. All side pulls will have rope loops. Pictures to be updated soon.
