Cinch Hobble #ZB
Description: This cinch hobble is 10 inches long when it’s folded, 3/4 inch wide and there are 3 adjustment holes. I make my cinch hobbles from biothane because it’s so durable.
How it works: This is a very important piece of tack and should never break. It will last a very long time even when used continuously in wet and dirty conditions. This biothane cinch hobble is the only piece of tack I make from non-natural materials.
Double Off Latigo #DO1
Description: I make my Double Off Latigos just the right thickness to be very strong but not leave a lump under your fender. They are available in two sizes: 1 3/4 inches wide by 4 1/2 feet long and 2 inches wide by 6 1/2 feet long. Both of these widths will fit well on any of my cinchas, it’s your personal preference and size of your horse that determine which to buy. Ranch cowboys have told me they prefer the wider, longer double-off.
Call Dennis when ordering (817)-312-5305 if you prefer an extra thin double off.
See my Tack Talk Article The Double Off Billet for more information on double off latigos.
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.
Slobber Straps #ZL
Description: Slobber Straps will add extra weight to the bit end of your mecate. This weight causes a quicker release of the pressure on the mouth from the bit when the pull on the reins is released.
These are made of 2 inch x 5 1/2 inch (folded) racetrack harness leather, the most durable leather available. They have been edged, hand rubbed, oiled with Neatsfoot Oil and hand rubbed again. These straps are sold in pairs.
Vaquero Rawhide Cream #ZK
Vaquero rawhide cream is a fine rawhide dressing. We use it right here in the shop to condition the rawhide as we braid it. Rawhide dries during the braiding process and this cream is essential to keep the rawhide in perfect condition for braiding. It’s a good idea to use it to recondition your rawhide every 6-12 months. It’s easy to use! Simply apply a coat of the cream, rub it in, hang it up for several hours to soak in and then ride!
Vaquero Rawhide Cream is applied to all rawhide products before they are shipped to you. Use it to clean, soften and preserve all of your rawhide.
Snap and Buckle for Breast Collars and Martingales #ZE
Description: This replacement strap fits all breast collars and leather martingales. It’s made of doubled and stitched 3/4 inch harness leather with a beveled stainless steel buckle and snap. The leather is sewn together beneath the buckle to prevent the buckle from slipping down the strap. This strap has been edged, hand-rubbed, oiled with Neatsfoot Oil and hand-rubbed again to give it a very nice finish.
