These wonderful lead ropes are made from the yacht rope that is so popular in the natural horsemanship world. Yacht rope is chosen for a few reasons and one is that it has a long life span since sun, water and salt won’t cause it to weaken. Get these dirty? Just toss them in the washing machine and they will wash up as good as new.
The 1/2″ is a wonderful size for hanging onto. It’s not too small and can be easier to get a hold of. The oversized rope makes getting a hold of an unruly horse easier than the smaller, lightweight ropes.
The yacht rope also has some “life” in it. This means when the rope is picked up on one end, this telegraphs down the line better and more effectively than other types of leads. So communication can be smoother and more effective when using these types of ropes.
This rope is 10 feet long with a nice big, brass bolt snap. The rope has a loop braided into the snap end, which makes it easy to remove the large bolt snap and replace it with a smaller snap if needed.
This rope is great for minis all the way to draft horse size.
