Our halters are available in three types of rope:

All New England Rope colors have red and white tracers making them multicolored. Colors include: Red, Blue, Green and Black.

Nylon - Manufactured by Aamstrand,
nylon yacht braid is strong, soft and can last for years. It is available in colors not found in polyester. Like the polyester, Aamstrand nylon is slightly softer and thicker than the New England Rope dacron/polyester marine rope providing slightly more comfort for the horse.
It is also a little more delicate than either of the polyester yacht braid ropes. We recommend storing the rope tack made from it indoors when not in use. The nylon marine rope retains it's strendth and function for years. However, over time it develops a fuzzy look. The main reason to choose Nylon is for color.
Colors include: Pink and Teal.

When comparing rope, note the tracer (or lack of tracer) which identifies the manufacturer.  The tracer is a thread of a different color which is woven into the outer cover or sleeve of the rope.
