yacht braid lead rope

Our lead ropes are made from polyester double braid yacht rope,

made especially for the equine industry.

The 1/2" solid black rope is made by PNW Select in Washington state.  

The 5/8" solid black rope is also made by PNW Select .

Both of the PNW Select ropes are excellent quality ropes with a smooth tight braid so that they will not snag easily.  We use the 1/2" with our quarter horses and have been very pleased with it.

 

 We also have cotton rope available in 5 colors.

 Quantities can be changed before your order is submitted.

 1/2" rope with leather popper

      Yacht Braid Lead Ropes

Excellent abrasion resistance

High resistance to UV degradation

Available as a lead rope with a leather popper & as a

   "rope only" option with no popper

 

  

The lead rope should be tied to the halter using a Sheet Bend Knot.  Thread the rope thru the lead rope loops on the halter from the back of the loops.  Then pass the rope end around behind the

loops to your right.  Bring the rope end around and pass over the halter loops and then under the lead rope itself.  For a more secure knot wrap the lead rope end around a second time and back under itself.

With the "rope only" option both ends are melted to reduce unraveling and fraying of the rope, we've also added a parachute cord knot at each end to help keep the ends secure.
