Lacing Fid #TL4
This Lacing Fid is made with a hand braided rawhide handle for an extra good feel in your hand. This is a tool every horseman should own. It makes opening the bled leather on the slotted concho headstalls so easy. You may want to put one in your tack room and another in your trailer, along with your awl, to use when you need to make a repair.
Australian Leather Conditioner #ZQ
Description: B.K. Smith Australian Leather Conditioner is created from natural bush ingredients in Australia. It’s designed for the care and maintenance of all leather tack, and is exceptionally good on kangaroo. It comes in a 17.6 oz screw-top container.
How it works: This conditioner is soft and spreads easily. Apply it in the sun or other warm place, and then rub the leather with a dry, soft cloth. It takes only a small amount to leave a clean, nourished finish on your leather products.
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.
Kick Chain #KC1
Description: These Kick Chains have a doubled and stitched 1 3/4 inch burgundy latigo leather cuff with an ”easy-on/easy-off” fastener. The rectangle, dee and 12 inch chain are stainless steel. This kick chain is made to fit the front or back fetlock of any size horse.
How it works: The kick chain is an ideal aid for those horses that want to kick or paw while in the stall or trailer or paw while tied up. This can be fastened to either a front or hind fetlock. Most horses will stop pawing or kicking after a short time with the kick chain but a small percentage will need to wear it indefinitely. Generally, one kick chain can be used for a session and then transferred to the other front or back fetlock for a session and the problem will be solved. Occasionally a horse that has been pawing or kicking for a long time will need to wear a kick chain on both legs at the same time.
This is sold as a single kick chain, if you need more than 1 please order additional kick chains 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.

Flattening Hammer #TL6
Description: This leather Flattening Hammer has a hand braided rawhide handle that helps give you a good grip. The rawhide is beveled and rubbed with vaquero rawhide cream before shipping so it will always feel good in your hand.
