Our most popular lead ropes by far are the double braid polyester leads. When you combine strength, durability, feel and comfort all in one, it is easy to see why. These leads come in custom lengths, from 7′ to 15′. The 15′ are a favorite for doing any kind of ground work, especially when paired with one of our training halters. We can get a large variety of colors, most matching the rope halters we offer. These leads come standard with an eye splice and leather popper in red or black.
Cotton Lead Ropes
Another common favorite is the cotton lead rope. These classic ropes are sturdy yet soft on the hands. The standard color is white but we do hand dye them as well. These come with snaps permanently attached.
Braided Lead Ropes
Braided leads are a great alternative for those wanting something more customized. The standard is an 8 strand lead but also available is a 12 strand. These leads can be made to match a noseband color scheme, or to add a little flair to any halter. Made from 550 cord, these leads have a similar tensile strength to the polyester and cotton leads. These leads can come with a loop or with permanently attached snaps, and with a popper style end. There are a few different braiding patterns available as well.
Lunge Lines & Driving Reins
Lunge lines are an essential item to have in ones tool box. From starting colts to taking the edge off before riding, lunge lines are a go to item. As with all of our products, we can make what you need. From featherweight lines for liberty work, to more standard 1/2″ polyester lines, or the ever popular flat braid lines. The average length is 20′ to 25′, however that is customizable.
Driving reins are made with either 2 separate lines or a large loop rein, depending on personal preference. These usually come with either scissor snaps or bolt snaps permanently attached.
Carrot Stick Strings
Very popular for desensitizing, these strings attach to the end of a carrot stick. They act as an extension of your arm and are used for ground work. They are also handy to keep in a saddle bag as they can double as a make shift halter or lash if you’re in a bind. The standard length is 6′.
We offer hardware for your lead ropes or lines. These are a very heavy duty snap, with some styles very hard to source in Canada.
From left to right we have a buffalo snap, trigger bull snap, bolt snap and a panic snap.
