Get Down-Braided Rawhide Nose & Heel Knot #GD3
Description: This Get Down-Braided Rawhide Nose & Heel Knot is a beautiful piece of equipment and is all hand made. The rawhide nose has been hand braided and will hold it’s shape to fit the horse’s nose correctly from the first time it’s used. The braided rawhide heel knot adds to the beauty of this fine piece of equipment. The California style hanger is made of 1/2 inch burgundy latigo leather that has been hand-edged, rubbed and waxed. The get down rope is 14 feet long and made of 5/16 inch braid on braid rope. There is a leather popper bled (spliced) to the tie end and partially covered by a long hand-braided rawhide knot. The ball end of the get down rope ties snugly around the horses neck with a bowline knot to prevent the loop from becoming too tight around the neck. It has a small rope tassel and a hand-braided rawhide knot at the end.
How it works: This Get Down with hand braided rawhide nose and heel knot, California style hanger, and lead rope is designed to be worn under the bridle. This is the perfect tool if you want to get off and lead or tie your horse without unbridling. Get Downs are especially handy on the ranch or when trail riding or hunting. While riding, the get down rope can be carried by tucking it under your belt, double half-hitching it to your saddle horn or coiling it and attaching it to your saddle with the left front saddle string. Also shown on the horse are the Latigo Slide Ear Headstall #HS28, the Short S Shank Bit #B2, the #CU21 Double Buckle Curb, and the Rawhide Romal Reins #CCR1.
