Cowboy Knots

These knots can be used on soft rope or stiff cord and can be braided in the doubleweave pattern (DW) or interweave pattern (IW).  The doubleweave pattern is the most popular but you can choose the interweave pattern if you want to match up with pineapple knots on other pieces of tack.  You can choose 1 or 2 colors for the doubleweave pattern; 2 colors for the interweave pattern.

Made with the same polyester yarn as all the other rope so it matches perfectly.  It has a polyester cover and a separate polyester core.  I can use the braiding cord with or without the core to create different effects on various items.  Bosalter nosebands are usually made with the core, trim knots and tie end buttons are usually made without the core.

Extra knots halter with cheek trim to match rein trim.  Medium cowboy knots (doubleweave pattern) and mini ring knots. Tie end button.

Other Options

Regular sized (not the mini or extra small) ring knots and turkshead knots can be placed on the noseband or poll strap - the sections of a rope halter that have 2 strands.   These options are great if you don't want to go all out with the braided noseband but want a splash of color.  They also work well if you want to add some points of pressure to the noseband or poll strap.

These are Turkshead  knots.  I can make them in the same pattern as a bosalter noseband or to coordinate with other pieces of tack.  As with the cowboy knots, the doubeweave pattern is the most popular but if you want to match with pineapple knots, choose the interweave pattern.   

Note:  A tie end button is included on all bosalter halters at no charge.

Add custom trim to your halter, bosalter, side pull halter, or cross under halter to make it uniquely yours!  I can add knots on the cheek pieces to coordinate with the noseband braiding of your bosalter or to spruce up a regular or extra knots halter, side pull halter or cross under halter.  All trim is braided with polyester braiding cord  -  color choices are shown below.

Scroll down for a list of the knots available for cheek piece trim and tie end buttons.  Prices are listed for each knot.   Keep scrolling farther to see lots of pictures of custom trim on halters, but feel free to use your imagination!
