Basket Stamped Straight Spur Straps #SS1
Description: This is a great looking spur strap on any boot. It’s made to fit right and it comes in 3 sizes for the whole family! These straight spur straps are cut from the back of the skirting leather side to give you a beautiful and very durable strap. The straps are basket stamped by hand and have a hand braided rawhide loop keeper. The stainless steel buckles are sewn in place.
The inside spur button is covered with a thin leather teardrop so you won’t catch your buttons and trip. This is an important safety factor especially when doing any kind of ground work with your horses or colts.
If you order a pair of spurs at the same time I will gladly put the straps on for you. These spur straps are great for everyday work but look especially nice in the show pen! They will last for years.
Mens: fits men’s boot size 9 and larger
Womens: fits women’s boot size 9 1/2 and smaller
Youth: fits children’s boot size 4 and smaller
Cowboys Past, Present and Future by Jack Brainard
In this equally entertaining and educational book, Jack Brainard takes readers back in time to the Great Plains, where cattle, mustangs, trail drives, and sprawling ranches painted the backdrop for the development of the cowboys of the west as we know them today. Starting from the Westward expansion of the United States, Brainard describes the factors and elements that molded being a cowboy into a way of life. This book is perfect for anyone who has ever wanted to know more about the history of the cowboy, how the cowboy has adapted to changing times, and what the future may hold.
Leather Romal Reins with Rawhide Buttons #CCR2
Description: The Leather Romal is made of doubled and stitched 5/8 inch latigo and the Leather Reins are made of doubled and stitched 1/2 inch latigo. The beautiful rawhide buttons and barrel knots on the reins and romal are all braided by hand. The popper is hand stamped double and stitched skirting leather. The reins and romal are connected with an 1/2 inch latigo strap with rawhide balls and loops and the reins have stainless steel swivel snaps. The romal and reins are each 48 inches long and connectors are 12 inches for a total of 108 inches. If you want to use rein chains and need a shorter rein let me know and I’ll make them just the way you want them. These Leather Romal Reins with Rawhide Buttons (also known as Romel Reins) are being used by professionals. This is a great alternative to the higher priced rawhide romals and make the perfect everyday or show romal reins.
Crafting: To make double and stitched romals and reins I take 2 pieces of latigo and split them to the correct thicknesses. Next I glue the 2 pieces and carefully cut the desired lengths. Finally they’re stitched together. Double and stitched leather is more durable and longer lasting than single ply leather. The double & stitched items are not thicker than single ply leather so still have that good feel in your hands. All of the rawhide at Dennis Moreland Tack is produced entirely by hand from start to finish before being braided.
Your rawhide should be conditioned regularly with #ZK Vaquero Rawhide Cream.

5/8″ 6 Strand Horse Mane-Hair Mecate #DK5
Description: This 5/8 inch mecate, also called a McCarty, is designed for the hackamore reinsman. This mecate has a firm twist on a horsehair core, good body and yet a very soft hand. Let this 6 strand mecate be your ultimate horse hair rope! It’s 22 feet long. I will be happy to tie this mecate to a bosal if you purchase one but you may need to adjust the number of wraps to fit your horse after you receive it. I have various colors available including sorrels, greys, blacks and whites. Please call for color availability 817-312-5305. If I don’t hear from you, I will choose the color.
How it works: Horse mane-hair mecates are widely used in the California-vaquero tradition. A horse responds to the feel of the horse hair on their neck better than to many other materials. The traditional material and patterns also look exceptionally good on our horses. A superior quality professional mecate.
