Ring Rawhide Noseband/Tiedown #T6
Description: My Ring Rawhide Noseband is made of 3/8 inch nylon rope with a handbraided rawhide noseband. The leather hanger has been edged, hand rubbed, treated with Neatsfoot Oil and hand rubbed again. The buckle is stainless steel with a hand braided rawhide keeper. The leather beneath the buckle is stitched together to keep the buckle in place when you adjust it between horses. The ring is also stainless steel. Shown without a tiedown strap but available with your choice of a #ZG 1 inch or a 3/4 inch Leather Tie Down Strap or #ZH Nylon Tie Down Strap (see dropdown to order).
How it works: This is a stout tiedown that will hold up. If you’ve got a horse that wants to push on a leather noseband this rawhide braid will really help back it off.
No Buckle Hobble with Leather Center #H3L
Description: This No Buckle Hobble with Leather Center is made of 1 3/4 inch doubled and stitched latigo leather with a 3 inch long latigo leather link in the center. The hobble also has an easy “on/off” latch that makes this a snap to take on and off the fetlocks. This should only be used on horses that are completely hobble broke.

Only for use on horses that are hobble broke already.
Above the Hock Kick Chain #KC2
Description: The Above the Hock Kick Chain is made of 1 inch double and stitched latigo leather with a stainless steel roller buckle and dee. The 18 inch chain attached to the dee is also stainless steel.
How it works: This kick chain is worn above the hock and will not drag around the stall. This is a useful tool to use on those horses that want to kick the stall or trailer. Most horses will stop kicking after a short time with the kick chain but a small percentage will need to wear it indefinitely. This kick chain is sold as a single. If you need additional Above the Hock Kick Chains, and you may need 1 for each back leg on a horse that has been kicking the stall or trailer for a long time, please order additional in the “quantity” box below.
This is not a tool to be used for teaching horses to not kick at people.
Shown on a horse that is 15.1 hands and 1100 pounds.
Scratch Awl #TL3
The Scratch Awl is made with a hand braided rawhide covered handle to give you a good grip and feel good on your hands as you work. This awl is a sharp pointed tool useful for drawing patterns on the leather or a straight line to square a hide. It’s also real useful to mark places to punch holes in leather.
Bronc Sideline #SL1
Description: The cuffs on this sideline are made of 1 3/4 inch doubled and stitched burgundy latigo leather with a leather tab fastener for easy connection and release. The rectangle and dee are made of round stainless steel rod. The cuffs are connected with 1/2 inch by 24 inch nylon rope. This’ll be one of the handiest tools you’ll ever use.
How it works: To apply the Bronc Sideline just build a loop in the back of the cuff by sliding the rope through, let the colt step in it and pull it snug. Let him settle and then attach the easy-on front cuff. Always use caution when putting the sideline on for the first time. Get out in an open sandy arena with lots of room so your colts or horses will be safe if they react to having their legs connected with the sideline. Once horses learn how a sideline feels they usually accept it and stand quietly. Both sidelines and hobbles can have a very quieting effect on the horse’s mind.
The first time you use the sideline on your horse or while training the horse to accept it use a wide open sandy area. Do not put it on in confined space until they accept the sideline easily and well. If you are not familiar with the use of sidelines seek help from a professional who is experienced with their use.
