Description: This Texas Style 5 plait hackamore rein is made of very tightly braided, 1/4 inch, solid braid nylon rope. It’s 16 feet long with rawhide ring knots at each end.

Braided Grass Hackamore Rein #CHR1
Description: If you’re looking for a hackamore rein that will really help you get a good turning response from your colts this is a good choice. It’s easy for a horse to feel the texture of this Braided Grass Hackamore Rein on its neck which helps it understand neck reining cues. This hand braided grass rein is a smooth solid-braid that’s 1 inch wide x 16 feet long. It has no stretch and has been waxed so it will have a longer life. Note that this rein can be a little scratchy on your hands.
This is a very useful rein to have when you’re training colts or tuning up older horses. This rein really helps your horses learn to respond to pressure. It’s high quality and will last.
Latigo Tie String #ZC
The quality of your tie strings is so important since they keep your bridles and reins from coming undone. This 1/4 inch x 16 inch latigo tie string is cut, hand edged, rubbed with saddle soap, waxed, and hand rubbed again to give you the highest quality tie string on the market. These tie strings are sold as singles, get a few to keep in the barn and in the trailer for emergencies!
Long X Harness Leather Split Reins #ASR5
Description: Cowboys tell me these reins have a great feel to use one-handed riding across the pasture. This is a longer version of the X reins, averaging 7 1/2 to over 8 feet in length and 5/8 inch wide. These reins offer the flexibility of a longer rein without the added weight of the XX, XXX or XXXX reins.
Crafting: These are cut in pairs from the best hides, hand edged, hand rubbed, oiled and hand rubbed again for a great feel before the reins are shipped to you. This tight fibered harness leather will last for years of hard use. These are stamped X on the ends, just like the Dennis Moreland X Reins, the difference is in the length. If you have any questions please feel free to call and we will “talk reins”.
1/2″ 6 Strand Mane-Hair Mecate #DK3
Description: This mecate has been designed with the true hackamore horseman in mind. Six strands of horse mane-hair have been firmly twisted on a horse hair core to 1/2 inch. It will meet the requirements of refined feel for even the most discriminating reinsman. This mecate, sometimes called a McCarty, is 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. There are 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, used on both hackamores and snaffle bits. 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. This is the ultimate horse hair rope.
X Harness Leather Split Reins #ASR4
Description: Not everyone likes heavier reins, so I cut these X reins out of a lighter-weight hide. These reins average 7 to 7 1/2 feet in length, 5/8 of an inch wide. The attention to detail is still here, but offered in a lighter-weight version. These are ideal for ranchers who want to ride with a lighter rein than the XX. On a cold winter day, these reins will still be supple if you’re checking cows in the cold.
Crafting: These are cut in pairs from the best hides, hand edged, hand rubbed, oiled and hand rubbed again for a great feel before the reins are shipped to you. This tight fibered harness leather will last for years of hard use. If you have any questions please feel free to call 817-312-5305 and we will “talk reins”.
