5/8″ 6 Strand Horse Mane-Hair Mecate #DK5
Description: This 5/8 inch mecate, also called a McCarty, is designed for the hackamore reinsman. This mecate has a firm twist on a horsehair core, good body and yet a very soft hand. Let this 6 strand mecate be your ultimate horse hair rope! It’s 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. 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.
How it works: Horse mane-hair mecates are widely used in the California-vaquero tradition. 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. A superior quality professional mecate.
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.
Latigo on Latigo 3/4″ Reins, Medium Weight #BLL5
Description: These Latigo on Latigo Double and Stitched 3/4 Inch Medium Weight Reins are a favorite among people with good sized hands. They’re cut 7 feet 9 inches long and are 9/32nd of an inch thick after I tightly stitch the 2 pieces of latigo together. These reins are hand rubbed, oiled and hand rubbed again to give them very good feel and body. As is the case with all my latigo on latigo doubled & stitched reins, these will hold their flexibility and shape even in the coldest weather.
This is a very well made pair of reins that you will appreciate every day you use them.
XX Harness Leather Split Reins #ASR3
Description: This is the biggest selling rein I make. The XX reins are just right for people who ride cutters or cow horses. These reins are hand made from heavy harness leather and are 7 to 7 1/2 feet long and 5/8 inch wide which gives you enough length to pitch your horse the slack when you lay your hand down. These are short enough to ride our little cutters with or ride with contact or tune on your horse when needed and heavy enough to show in.
Crafting: Heavy harness leather bridle reins are very special to me. Every effort is made to give you the best rein you have ever had. I work closely with the tannery to get only the finest dense, tight fibered leather available. I cut the reins in pairs, hand edge, hand rub, oil and hand rub them again for a great feel before I ship them to you. This tight fibered harness leather will last for years. Please feel free to call 817-312-5305 and we will “talk reins”.
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”.
