Place Order

-- Please call or email to place your order.

-- I do not have a shopping cart - just too many products with too many options.

-- Visit the Contact page for phone number, email, etc. or... 

All products are handcrafted in the USA (northern Illinois) and can be customized to your specifications to fit any equine - mini to draft, donkeys, mules ... whatever you have!  I make basic, "no-frills" equipment or I can add fancy knots and/or braided trim to make your tack unique and "one-of-a-kind". I specialize in custom orders.  I also make some leather accessories and provide a variety of snaps for your selection.  All materials and workmanship are professional quality.

Thank you for visiting Y Knot Rope Tack!
