LEAD ROPES & LONGE LINES
All lead ropes and longe lines are made from the finest quality soft, marine grade double braided nylon rope you can buy. There is an inner core of braided rope covered by an outer core of braided rope. This gives the rope a "live" feel which you can use to send energy, direction, and feel to your horse. Contrary to what you read, nylon rope does not stretch, does not get "bigger over use" and does not become stiff over time. What nylon rope does not do is cause rope burn that polyester is known for. What it DOES do is wear like a pair of favorite jeans.
Lead ropes come in 1/2" diameter. Lengths are 12' or 14', or custom lengths upon request. The 22 ' longe comes in 1/2" diameter.
These lead ropes and longes are rot resistant, resist abrasion, won't twist, are supple and washable (though precautions need to be taken to minimize shrinking). Both the eye and back splices are hand sewn to prevent "unraveling". There is a latigo leather popper on the end.
One of the best selling, most popular style of lead and longe lines are the premium lead because you can choose to use a snap with this lead (scroll to the bottom of this page to see that application) or tie it directly to the halter: Directions Here This style lead does not leave an empty rope loop for attaching a snap so will last for years. If your snap breaks, you can attach a new one without losing your entire rope. Snaps are sold separately on the accessories page for the premium leads and longes.
If you purchase both a halter and lead rope from me, I will attach the two together upon request.

NHS HORSEMAN LEAD ROPES & LONGE LINES
This style of lead rope is very popular with many of the trainers and clinicians who use this type of training tool.
These lead ropes and longe lines are distinguished from other leads and longes by the spliced on snap. The snap is solid brass with a swivel catch mechanism that is extremely strong but designed to break under panic.
See rope description above to understand the unique quality of nylon rope v. Polyester.
The splices are all hand sewn for extra strength.
These lead ropes come in 1/2" diameter, 12', 14' or 22' length with a leather popper at the end. If you want a different length, email me and request an invoice.

Old Fashion Lead or Longe
The snap is solid brass and only 3½" long which is big enough for ease of clipping on to your halter but stays light enough to not interrupt feel during use. Sometimes, less is more.
NHS Old Fashion Lead $33.50 -$35.50
NHS Old Fashion 22' Longe $47.50
Based on the NHS Horsemanship longe line, this new lead offers an alternative to a spliced on snap with a double ended regular slide snap that measures approx. 4" long. This is a cross between the horseman, the old fashion and the horsemanship designs. Available in both solid brass and nickel plate on either black or white/blue tracer rope. The rope has a 1¼" ring spliced on. The double ended snap attaches to the ring. If it breaks, you will not lose your entire lead since these snaps can be found in any hardware store for replacements. The snaps and ring make for a fairly light weight attachment for those who don't like the weight of the barrel snaps.
Double end snap lead $35.50-$37.50
