Hobbles 

A simple style with no leather or buckles.  Loop around one leg, twist around itself until desired snugness and length is reached, place around other leg and insert crown knot button into button hole then slide ring knot to secure button.

  • Made with 1/2" or 3/8" double braid rope for hobble; sliding ring knot is made of 1/4" double braid rope (without the core)
  • Standard length is about 3 1/2' when laid out flat - I can make it longer or shorter if desired
  • choose 1 color for rope
  • choose 1 color for sliding ring knot


Price:  $25.00  1/2" rope

            $20.00  3/8" rope

Grab Strap

For saddles with no horn.  Gives you something to grab onto to keep your balance.  Non-swivel, flat back snaps attach to D rings on your saddle.

  • Finished length is about 12" but I can make it longer if desired

​​MISC. EQUIPMENT

War Bridle

This piece of equipment should only be used by an experienced rider with a well trained horse. The large loop goes in the horse's mouth where a bit would go, the sliding ring knot is used to snug the bridle up under the chin, reins are attached to the eye spliced ends.

  • Made with 1/4" double braid rope - choose 1 color
  • Choose any color braiding cord for the ring knot (1 color)
  • Finished standard length as shown  (minimum length required to make eye splices - I can make it longer but no shorter. I can make the side pieces long enough to be split reins if you want them made with the 1/4" rope.)


Price:  $16.50 (standard size)

Shoulder Strap

For holding a breast collar higher on shoulders.  I can make it in different styles:

  1. with spliced in flat-back, non swivel snaps for use with leather breast collar that has rings at collar/tug joint
  2. with button loop connectors for use with my rope breast collar or a regular leather collar
  3. with adjustable braided buckle straps (like tugs described above) - with or without snaps - to use with either style of breast collar.

Another option if you are also ordering a rope breast collar at the same time would be to permanently attach the shoulder strap to the off side of the breast collar, then have either a button loop or braided buckle strap connector on the near side.

  • Made with 1/2" double braid rope - choose 1 color
  • Choose brass plated or nickel plated snaps, if any 
  • I will need a measurement - even for adjustable straps so I can make it "in the ballpark"
  • Can add braided trim if desired (3-bite doubleweave cowboy knots shown in picture) 
  • Choose any color(s) braiding cord for the trim


Price:  $18.00  spliced in snaps

            $39.00  rope button loop connectors or braided buckle straps

Breast Collar 

A unique design with a 3-sided knot at the chest.  Very flexible, easy to clean and not affected by sweat.  Fully adjustable tugs are made of braiding cord to attach to cinch rings, D rings or to loop through gullet as a pulling collar. Ring knots, which create loops for the tugs, are not attached to the rope so the collar can be adjusted to fit higher or lower across the shoulders.

  • Made with 1/2" double braid rope - choose 1 color
  • I will need measurements from center of chest to attachment point on saddle and also from center of chest to girth/cinch ring
  • choose 1 color for rope
