Facts & Answers to common questions:

 
  We have been very busy and orders for braided items will probably not be shipped for 6 to 8 weeks.  Orders for other items that do not involve braiding, such as lead ropes and leather reins, will be shipped out within 1 to 3 weeks.  Generally, items are made in the same order that I receive the order for them.  However, there is a limit to the number of hours I can spend braiding each day due to the stress on my hands from it.  So if you order one of the many braided items I make, I really appreciate your patience.

Yes, the parachute cord reins are washable.  If your reins are a combination of a light and a dark color - PLEASE test the end of the rein first to make sure the darker color doesn't bleed.  But as far as we know, none of the colors will bleed.  We have had great success with washing our reins. 

We take all the hardware off and then put them in the washing machine - ours is a front load with no agitator - and a mild soap.  You could also wash them in a bucket or the sink.  Use cold water, not warm or hot.  We have also used a little fabric softener in the rinse cycle to soften them a little and make them a little more flexible.  Then hang to dry.

If you have the split reins with the leather poppers,  you should use a bucket or the sink and try to keep the leather out of the soapy water.  The leather can be rinsed off to remove caked on mud.  Apply a leather conditioner to the poppers.

 
 
 
  The rope halters are also washable, we've washed them in our washing machine as well.  They should also be hung to dry.
