3/8″ 4 Strand Mane-Hair Mecate #DK1
Description: The 3/8 Inch 4 Strand Horse Mane-Hair Mecate, also called a McCarty, has a firm twist around a horsehair core, good body and yet a very soft hand. This mecate is 22 feet long. 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. A great professional quality mecate, the right diameter to ride your bosalita.
Round Nylon Split Reins #DSB2
Description: If you’d like a high quality rein for a taller colt, but still want to stay within your budget, these Round Nylon Split Reins at 8 feet in length fit well on horses 14.2 hands or taller. These split reins are made of brown 5/8 inch braid-on-braid nylon with 5/8 inch leather poppers at each end.
Latigo on Latigo 5/8″ Reins, Heavy Weight #BLL2
Description: I’ve worked closely with the same tannery for years to find a thicker hide just for these reins. Two pieces of heavy (24 oz.) latigo are tightly stitched together to make this rein 3/8” thick. They’re cut 5/8” wide and in your choice of two lengths; 7′ long and 7’9” long (see the dropdown to choose). I make the 7’9″ length for average size horses. The 7′ length works for those who are training the smaller cutting & cow horse colts and for ranch sorters who keep their horses really gathered up through continuous quick turns.
These are a very heavy rein that allows for superb contact with a horse’s face. My heavy weight latigo on latigo reins are more pliable than the harness leather on latigo reins #HL58 but they aren’t too heavy or stiff. If properly cared for, they will last many years. Like all of my reins, they are hand edged and rubbed. The attention to detail and craftsmanship of these reins speaks for itself, I guarantee it. Dennis
Hackamore Rein w/Rawhide Braided Ends #CHR5
Description: This is a nice lightweight hackamore rein, easy on the hands and great for loping. This Hackamore Rein with Rawhide Braided Ends is made of 3/8 inch braid on braid nylon rope and is 16 feet in length. There are hand braided rawhide knots and 1/2 inch leather poppers on each end. This also makes an excellent rein for a nice relaxing afternoon ride!
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.
Latigo on Latigo 3/4″ Snaffle Bit Reins #BLL6
Description: At 7 feet long these Latigo on Latigo 3/4″ Snaffle Bit Reins are made a little shorter to ride your snaffle bit colts with. They’re 3/4 inch wide, approximately 9/32nd of an inch thick and are not too heavy or stiff. Made of premium quality hand picked hides and finished with hand rubbing, oiling and hand rubbing again these will give you the perfect feel.
This will be the best pair of doubled and stitched reins you have ridden your colts in, I guarantee it. Dennis
