Adjustable Headsetter with Rawhide Nose #CST3
Description: This Adjustable Headsetter with Rawhide Nose is made of 3/16 inch rope with a hand braided rawhide nose. The straps for adjustment are made of race track harness leather, the toughest and tightest fibered leather I can buy. This is not latigo leather and will not stretch. The headsetter has stainless steel 5705 buckles on each side which allows you to get exactly the right fit and feel for your horse. The headsetter price does not include a tie down strap but you may purchase a Leather Tiedown Strap #ZG, either 3/4 or 1 inch in width, or a Nylon Tie Down Strap #ZH (shown) with the headsetter. See dropdown to order.
How it works: As the head goes up pressure is applied from the tiedown strap to the nose. This causes the cheek pieces to slide through the nose piece rings until the rings reach the top stop on the cheek pieces. As the cheek pieces are sliding pressure is increased at the poll. This headsetter applies more pressure to the poll than to the nose. The pressure points together cause the horse to lower his head to a natural position to find release. This is a very popular training tool with ropers and barrel racers and can help those horses that have a tendency to raise their heads while roping or barrel racing. Can be a great training aid for other disciplines also. In time, the horse will learn to carry his head lower to avoid the pressure from the headsetter.
Rope Strap #ZM
This rope strap is made of 1/2 inch latigo leather. It fits around the swell of any saddle and has a long slit to go over the saddle horn. It’s stout enough to hold your rope securely and light enough to break if you get a spur through the coils of your rope on a broncy colt; it’ll save you from being dragged.

Nylon Tiedown Strap #ZH
Description: This is a high quality and at the same time economical tiedown strap made of 1/4 inch solid braid nylon cord. The cord loops through the ring in the tiedown and is adjustable. The swivel snap is stainless steel. This strap is very durable and let’s you stay on budget while getting quality piece of gear!
Hand Braided Rawhide Oxbow Stirrups #GS2
Description: Like all the hand braided rawhide stirrups at Dennis Moreland Tack these Hand Braided Rawhide Oxbows start in the metal shop where the stirrups are shaped and a 3/8 inch stainless steel rod is welded in the top. The metal is polished and the stirrups are taken to the braiding shop for the rawhide to be hand braided on. After braiding they go to the leather shop for the skirting leather treads to be laced on and the top wear leathers to be attached. Lastly the tread and wear leathers are hand oiled to give you years of service. These are very high quality stirrups.
How they work: Correctly shaped steel stirrups covered with finely hand-braided rawhide are not only a riding aid but add a distinctive look to any saddle. Stirrups have harness leather treads and roller cover. The weight of these steel stirrups really helps keep them in place during quick, catty moves. If you lose a stirrup it will be right there to pick up again. Available in two sizes (see dropdown): 1 inch oxbow (5 3/4 inches deep x 5 1/2 inches wide) and 1 inch oxbow wide (6 1/4 inches deep x 6 inches wide). The wide size is for wider boots, such as E width or more. It’s always good to choose the width which allows space between the edge of your foot and the edge of the stirrup for safe mounting and dismounting.
Shown are 1 inch oxbow stirrups.
Adjustable String Cavesson #CA2
Description: The noseband on this Adjustable String Cavesson is made of tan 1/8 inch solid braid nylon cord. The adjustment knots at the bottom allow the noseband to be quickly changed between horses to 19, 21 or 23 inches. The headstall is made of 1/2 inch burgundy latigo leather that has been edged and hand-rubbed. The buckle is beveled stainless steel with a leather loop keeper. This cavesson lays flat under your bridle and will last for years of hard use.
Size Measurement: An easy way to be certain this cavesson will fit your horse is to wrap a leadrope around the nose where the cavesson will lay, mark the leadrope with a magic marker, straighten it and then measure the leadrope.
