8' Loop Reins with leather buckle straps and brass snaps
A customer ordered the wrong length of reins and she returned these -unused - for a longer set. They are made with 3/4" double braid rope. This very thick and heavy rope was a special order for a trainer and I have used the balance of the spool mostly for reins. Those with arthritis find the thicker diameter easier to hold. The leather buckle straps are 3/4" wide instead of my usual 5/8" width. They can be used with or without the brass snaps. (subtract $3.00 if you do not want the snaps - the reins will be a few inches shorter than 8' without the snaps.)
$48.00 8' loop reins with double heart buckle straps and snaps, 3/4" rope
$38.00 Discount Price
I made this set to use up the last of my stock of Samson rope (original supplier of yacht rope for equine industry). It is the "classic" natural hackamore with the reins tied on above the fiador knot, but with separate reins and lead rope (instead of a 1-piece mecate) so you have options. It has not been on a horse. There is nothing wrong with the set - just reducing stock. You cannot use the halter without the reins attached but you can remove the lead rope - or add a snap to it - whenever desired.
(I can send directions for tying on the reins)
Regular Rope Halter
These halters are made with rope from a previous supplier - pink color only. The matching 1/2" rope is gone so I am selling the halters at a discount. There is nothing wrong with the rope or the halters - I have made them to my usual standards. The rope is a double braid with a polypropylene cover and a polyester core. It makes a lightweight, soft halter.
Sizes of halters made up: extra small, small, medium
Lengths cut to make these sizes: mini A, small, medium
Regular price: $20.00 Discount price: $12.00 each
11' Lead Rope
This has a basic button on the halter end and a plain tail end - back spliced and no leather popper. (I can send directions for tying the button end onto a rope halter.) There are a couple very minor flaws in the rope where the braiding machine much have had a hiccup and made the strands cross over. You may feel a small raised place but the performance of the rope is not affected.

Custom Sidepull Set
This was my display sample for a few years at horse fairs, etc. This is the "fancy" version - showing a lot of possible options to customize your tack. I usually had a "plain" version on display as well showing the contrast between economical vs. extravagant. It was worn by a horse on a few short occasions - being led around for a "grand march/fashion show" at the midwest horse fair and to take pictures of the set on my horse. Otherwise, it was on display on a plastic horse head or hanging on a peg in my workshop.

$303.00 Retail Price
noseband braiding and cowboy knots are interweave pattern
$230.00 Discount Price - complete set
This was a display set for the midwest horse fair. It has not been on a horse. There is nothing wrong with the set - just no longer need to keep it as a sample. You can untie one end of the reins and use the set as a normal halter/lead or you can remove the reins completely and use the halter with a different lead rope.
(I can send directions for tying on the reins.)
20.00 Regular Halter, size Medium, soft rope
8.00 Chain braid noseband
31.00 11' loop reins with 2-color basic buttons (10' usable length after tie on)
$59.00 Retail Price
$47.00 Discount Price - complete set
Alamar Knot Browbands
These browbands were samples and I do not make this style anymore. The blue one was part of a bridle set but the buyer did not want the browband. They are made with spaces for a headstall and throatlatch but they could also be used on a halter. They are adjustable - the ring knots on each side will slide to adjust the overall length and the spacing for headstall, halter, etc. Both are sized for medium size horses or smaller.

Stainless Steel Trigger Bull Snaps
The trigger on these snaps does not work properly. When you pull it down to open, it stays open. You can push it up to close, but it does not snap back by itself as it should. It may loosen up the more it is used or a little WD40 may help. It is a functional snap, you just have to close the trigger yourself and on most of the snaps, it only takes a little nudge to get it to snap back. I have about 10 of these.
Regular price when sold separately: $10.00
Discount price: $5.00 each

Regular Rope Halter
These halters are made with rope from a previous supplier - black color only. There is nothing wrong with the rope or the halter - it is made to my usual standards. The rope is an accessory cord (not splice-able) with a polyester cover and core. It makes a soft halter.
Size of halter made up: small
Lengths cut to make these sizes: extra small, small, large
Regular price: $20.00 Discount price: $12.00 each
$25.00 8' loop reins with water straps, 1/2" rope
$20.00 Discount Price
8' Loop Reins with leather water straps
There are some minor flaws in the rope - some small snags and loops. These do not affect the performance of the reins and they will probably become less noticeable with use.
Custom Bosalter Set for a Mini Horse
I made this set for the "grand march/fashion show" at the midwest horse fair a few years ago. It was on a mini for maybe an hour total for the two shows. It was a sample to show custom options on mini size tack.
36.00 Bosalter Halter, size Mini A, soft rope
24.00 Cheek piece trim - medium cowboy knots
44.00 6' lead rope with eye splice on halter end,

22' Long Line with spliced in stainless steel ring
This is made of rope from a previous supplier. It is 1/2" double braid with a polyester cover and core - very similar rope to the Artcraft Braid rope I use. There is nothing wrong with the rope - just reducing my inventory of odds and ends. Prices listed do not include the spring clip - you can add one for $3.00.

9' Loop Reins with leather water straps
The beginning of this spool of black 1/2" rope had a glitch in the braid pattern for the first several feet. If you look at the center of the closeup, you can see that there is an irregularity in the pattern. This makes a tighter place in the braid as it spirals around the rope. You may be able to feel a slight uneven-ness in the rope but it should not affect the performance of the reins. It is consistent over the length of the reins. I made 4 or 5 sets of reins with this rope. I have 2 sets left - I sold the others at a discount at the horse fair. Customers said they would work just fine.

5' Saddle Horn Spanker with Kangaroo Lace Pineapple Knot and Tassel instead of leather popper
This is a custom version of one of my standard "motivators". Even though kangaroo lace makes awesome knots, I no longer use it because it is very expensive and the braiding cord has more advantages - exactly matches the rope, less maintenance, etc. You could also attach this spanker to loop reins as a romal or use it as a short lead rope for a show or special event.
