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.
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.
Hand Braided Rawhide Flat Bottom Stirrups #GS1
Description: These correctly shaped steel stirrups are covered with finely hand-braided rawhide that adds a distinctive look to any saddle. Stirrups have harness leather treads and roller covers.
Sizes: These stirrups are available in the following sizes (see dropdown to order):
1 inch, 1 1/2 inch and 2 inch flat bottom (5 1/4 inch deep x 5 1/4 inch wide)
1 inch, 1 1/2 inch and 2 inch flat bottom-wide (5 3/4 inch deep x 5 3/4 inch wide). The wide size is for wider boots such as mens E width or more.
When buying stirrups it’s good to choose the width which will give space between the edge of your foot and the edge of the stirrup for easy and safe mounting and dismounting.
How they work: 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. These stirrups are beautiful in the show ring or on the trail when matched with any of the rawhide headstalls, romals and breast collars I make.
Shown are 2 inch wide flat bottom stirrups. Those shown on the horse are 1 1/2 inch flat bottom stirrups.
Romal Reins Connecting Straps #ZO
Description: Made of latigo leather with rawhide loops, these handmade romal rein connecting straps are 1/2 inch wide. They have 5 adjustment holes (with room for more) to allow you to change the length between 4 1/2 and 6 inches. The roller buckles are stainless steel. The leather beneath each buckle is hand stitched together to prevent the buckle from slipping down the strap during adjustments. The hand braided rawhide loop keepers make these quality straps even more beautiful. They add a nice accent to your rawhide, kangaroo or leather romal reins!
How they work: These romal rein connecting straps will safely connect your romal reins to your bit. The stainless steel roller buckles allow easy and quick adjustments in length. These straps will work with or without snaps. Three inch stainless steel bolt snaps (shown in photos of horses at left) are available in the dropdown for $15.00. If you order snaps we’ll put them on the straps before we ship them.
DM Restring Cinch #ZN
Description: If your original cinch or girth ever wears out you can send the buckles back to us to be restrung. Simply cut the cinch cord off the buckles and mail them in a box addressed to: Dennis Moreland Tack, 602 Dennis Rd., Weatherford, TX 76087.
We will polish the buckles and restring them with 31 strands of premium Mohair-blend cinch cord. We’ll also add a new center strap with Dees, a nylon keeper and labels. The new cinch(es) will look and act exactly like the original(s). See the dropdown to specify straight or roper cinch and size.
Enclose a note inside the box with your name, or, place a copy of your order in the box and we’ll match it up and get your new cinch(es) sent right back to you.

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.
