Long Latigo #L1
Description: I make 2 sizes of Long Latigo: the 1 3/4 inch width is 6 1/2 feet long and the 2 inch width is 7 1/2 feet long (see dropdown). The holes are 2 inches apart. The latigos are made from firm, tight-fibered burgundy latigo leather that has been edged, hand-rubbed, and waxed. These are exceptionally high quality, have great feel, and will give you years of service. I guarantee you will be pleased. Dennis
How it works: This long latigo is made to go around the cinch and saddle dee twice but will not leave a lump under your fender. If you happen to like an extra thin latigo so you can have the ultimate in close contact with your horse, give Dennis a call when ordering (817-312-5305) to have your latigo run through the splitter to thin it. It will also be re-edged and rewaxed before it’s sent to you.
See my Tack Talk article Latigo with the Flow to get more information on latigos.

Browband Headstall with Black Rawhide Ring Knots #HS63
Description: The Browband Headstall with Black Rawhide Ring Knots #HS63 is made of doubled and stitched 5/8 inch race track harness leather lined with oil-tanned lining leather. It’s accented with beautiful hand braided rawhide with black ring knots on the cheek pieces and browband. The beveled stainless steel buckles have braided rawhide keepers. The leather beneath the buckles is hand sewn together to keep the buckles from slipping during adjustments. This leather is hand-edged, hand-rubbed, treated with Neatsfoot Oil and hand-rubbed again. The rawhide is treated with rawhide cream.
How it works: Race track harness is a very dense, fine grained leather which makes this headstall strong but flexible. This is the best leather I can buy. The lining leather feels good against your horse’s face. Because the leather is split to the correct thickness before being doubled and stitched this headstall is not thicker than a single ply leather headstall. This makes it more durable and longer lasting than a single ply headstall and it has that good feel in your hands and on the horse. The impeccable braiding is done by a master of rawhide braiding.
This is a beautiful piece for work or show and is stunning on your snaffle bit colt! This headstall looks real good with the the #BC5 Straight Breast Collar with Rawhide or the #BC7 Full Rawhide Braided Breast Collar and with the #CCR1 Rawhide Romel Reins..
Available with your choice of slot concho, concho or tie string bit ends (see dropdown).
Shown with slot conchos.
Basket Stamped Spur Straps #SS3
Description: These spur straps are cut from the back of the skirting leather side to give you a very durable strap. The straps are basket stamped by hand and have a hand braided rawhide loop keeper. The leather beneath the stainless steel buckles is sewn together to keep the buckles in place. My spur straps are shaped to fit on your boots correctly.
The inside button cover is also basket stamped. Button covers are an important safety factor so when working your colts, horses or cattle on foot you don’t get your buttons caught and get tripped.
These Basket Stamped Spur Straps look very classy in the show pen as well as on the ranch. If you order a pair of spurs at the same time I will gladly put the straps on for you.
Men’s: boot size 9 and up
Women’s: size 9 1/2 and smaller

Reins are braided on an 1/4 inch core. If you like a smaller core you may also special order your reins braided on a 3/16th inch core. Please note this special order will take 6-8 weeks to complete (see dropdown for core widths). The romal and reins are connected with an 1/2 inch latigo strap with rawhide ball and loops. The bit connecting straps are 1/2 inch latigo with stainless steel roller buckles and rawhide loops for easy adjustment. The reins have stainless steel swivel snaps attached to the connecting straps. The romal and reins are each 48 inches long and connectors are 12 inches for a total of 108 inches.

#3 Spur with 1″ Wide Bands
This #3 Spur with a 1 inch wide band will fit ladies boots size 9 1/2 to 11 1/2 or mens boots size 9 to 10 1/2.
This spur is shown with a #2 shank and a #5 rowel.
TO CONTINUE BUILDING YOUR OWN SPURS:
- You have selected the #3 Spur with the 1″ Wide Band (fits most ladies boots size 9 1/2 to 11 1/2 or most mens boots size 9 to 10 1/2). If you need a different size, click here to select the band style and width based on your preference and boot size. I offer this variety of custom crafted bands to fit various boot sizes. This insures that each pair of spurs will have the correct heel radius and proper band length to fit the boot they are ordered for. The size of the spurs can be adjusted slightly by bending the bands in or out with a vice.
- Second-Choose from the selection of shank lengths (see options at left). Shank length is measured from the band to the center of the rowel. There are four lengths and patterns to choose from (order in dropdown).
- Third-Select one of the nine rowels available in the selection box at left (order in dropdown). You may also ship Dennis your favorite rowel to be put in your spur if you prefer. Call Dennis for this option 1-817-312-5305. Visit the spur rowel category for more information on available rowels.
- Fourth-Select whether you want nickel silver bars mounted on the bands of your spurs or enter up to 6 letters or email your brand to (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be overlaid in nickel silver on the bands. It is $50 more for letters or brand regardless of the number of letters. Special order lettering/brand may take up to 6 weeks. The shanks will come with silver bars regardless of selection on the bands.
To summarize-all spur orders will have 3 numbers: the first is the band, the 2nd is the shank and the 3rd is the rowel. Most spurs are in stock and shipped immediately. In the unusual circumstance that a spur is out of stock, or if you have ordered your spurs with lettering or a brand, it will take 4 to 6 weeks to make.
If you have any questions or need help with your spur choices please feel free to call Dennis at 817-312-5305 or email Dennis email@example.com.
