Round 3/8″ Nylon Mecate #DMR3
Description: This is a nice mecate to use on your 2 rein bosalita or to use at home on any hackamore. The Round 3/8 Inch Nylon Mecate, also called a McCarty, is available in 22 and 24 feet lengths (see dropdown) and is made of round 3/8 inch nylon rope. On average, the 22 foot mecate is built to ride on horses that are under 15 hands while the 24 foot length is built for horses 15 hands and taller. It has a tassel on one end and a popper on the other end. Because of the narrow diameter this is a good rein for smaller hands. The 22 foot mecate comes in tan and the 24 foot comes in brown.
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”.
Round 5/8″ Nylon Mecate #DMR5
Description: If you like a mecate made of densely braided rope with a lot of feel, this is a good one. The Round 5/8 Inch Nylon Mecate is available in 22 and 24 foot lengths (see dropdown) and is made of round 5/8 inch braid-on-braid nylon rope. On average, the 22 foot mecate, also known as a McCarty, is built to ride on horses that are under 15 hands while the 24 foot length is built for horses 15 hands and taller. This mecate has a tassel at one end and 5/8 inch leather popper at the opposite end. A little wider in diameter than the #DMR3 Mecate. This is a great mecate to use on your hackamores and your snaffle bits. It comes in your choice of brown or tri-color (pictured on horse). Make your selection in the dropdown.
Also shown on the horse is the Starting Bosal #HU5.
Slobber Straps #ZL
Description: Slobber Straps will add extra weight to the bit end of your mecate. This weight causes a quicker release of the pressure on the mouth from the bit when the pull on the reins is released.
These are made of 2 inch x 5 1/2 inch (folded) racetrack harness leather, the most durable leather available. They have been edged, hand rubbed, oiled with Neatsfoot Oil and hand rubbed again. These straps are sold in pairs.
Latigo on Latigo 1/2″ Reins, Medium Weight #BLL4
Description: If you’ve got smaller hands and are looking for a double and stitched rein with body and drape but not too much bulk these are a good choice. At your choice of 7 feet or 7 feet 9 inches in length these Medium Weight Latigo on Latigo 1/2 Inch Reins are my best selling double & stitched reins for ladies and youth with small hands. Because they are light, but drape so well when a horse is shown on a really loose rein, these are also a favorite with reiners. 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 disciplines like ranch sorting where horses are shown gathered up through continuous quick turns. Choose the length you prefer in the dropdown.
They are made of a medium weight leather that’s approximately 18 oz. making the reins 9/32nd of an inch thick after I stitch them together. I edge these reins by hand, rub them, oil them and rub them again. This extra hand work adds to their great feel. Every detail I put in their production coupled with the fact I buy only the highest quality hides to make my reins gives you that good even contact with your horses face you’re looking for.
These reins are built to last.
Five Plait Nylon Hackamore Rein #CHR2
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. This rope has been heavily waxed to give it more body and stiffness. This is the ideal rein for the horseman who wants a thicker rein in his or her hand with virtually no stretch.
