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.
Latigo on Latigo 5/8″ Reins, Medium Weight #BLL1
Description: I cut these doubled and stitched reins 5/8” wide. I make them in two lengths: 7′ for horses under 14.2 hands and 7’9” for horses over 14.2 (see dropdown for choices). These Latigo on Latigo 5/8″ medium weight reins have very good feel and body.
To make these reins I sew 2 pieces of latigo leather together with small, tight stitches. This makes the reins 9/32nd of an inch thick. All of the work is done by hand. I edge these reins by hand, rub them, oil them and rub them again.
How they work: This is my 42nd year making cowboy tack and I know which leather makes the best reins. I personally choose each hide I use to make sure you’ll have good even contact and communication with your horse. There are no gray signals with these reins.
These are my best selling doubled and stitched reins and are a favorite in the show ring. They will hold their flexibility and shape even in cold weather and they are built to last.
Try a pair; it will be the best pair of doubled and stitched reins you have owned, I guarantee it. Dennis
Latigo on Latigo 3/4″ Snaffle Bit Reins #BLL6
Description: At 7 feet long these Latigo on Latigo Double & Stitched 3/4″ Snaffle Bit Reins are made a little shorter to ride your snaffle bit colts with. They’re 3/4 inch wide, approximately 9/32nd of an inch thick and are not too heavy or stiff. Made of premium quality hand picked hides and finished with hand rubbing, oiling and hand rubbing again these will give you the perfect feel.
This will be the best pair of doubled and stitched reins you have ridden your colts in, I guarantee it. Dennis
Nylon Hackamore Rein #CHR3
Description: The Hand Braided Nylon Hackamore Rein lays real well and its shape and feel on the neck get a real good response from the horse. This hackamore rein is made of round 1/2 inch white nylon rope in the center, where it ties to the hackamore. The remainder of the 16 foot length is handbraided 5 plait nylon over the 1/2 inch center for a heavy rein with a real soft feel in the hands. This is an excellent rein for any hackamore you want to use and it will be the best nylon hackamore rein you’ve ever felt, guaranteed. Dennis
Round 5/8″ Nylon Mecate #DMR5
Description: If you like a little thicker mecate this is a good one. The Round 5/8 Inch Nylon Mecate is available in 22 and 24 foot lengths (see dropdown) and made of round 5/8 inch braid-on-braid brown nylon rope. On average, the 22 foot mecate, also known as a McCarty, is built to ride on horses that are under 15 hands while the 24 foot length is built for horses 15 hands and taller. This mecate has a tassel at one end and 5/8 inch leather popper at the opposite end. A little wider in diameter than the #DMR3 Mecate. This is a great mecate to use on your hackamores and your snaffle bits. It comes in your choice of brown or tri-color.
Flat Nylon Split Reins #DSB3
Description: These split reins have a very soft feel. They are made of brown 1 inch braided nylon. The reins are 8 feet long with 3/4 inch leather poppers at ends. This is a great rein for riding a tall colt in the snaffle, generally one that is 14.2 or taller. Also easy on the hands for all day work.
