Natural Horsemanship Rope for Leads and Reins
Our classic leads and reins
are made with Stable Braid which is designed with the specifications
most desirable for equine applications. Other rope
can be stiff and/or heavy in comparison. The rope is
constructed with a braided inner core and braided outer
sleeve for flexibility and a live feel. The half inch rope
is light enough to be a comfortable weight at the twenty-two
foot length. Stable Braid is the top rope choice among
leading Natural Horsemanship trainers. In addition to offering
the traditional white with a blue tracer, we custom order
the rope in black with a blue tracer as a horsefriendly exclusive.
When comparing rope, note the tracer (or lack of tracer)
which identifies the manufacturer (see diagram below).
The tracer is a thread of a different color which is woven
into the outer cover or sleeve of the rope.

two ropes in one. First the braided core is constructed.
A second rope is then braided over it to form the cover
or sleeve. Since double braid rope was first introduced in
1958, there have been many improvements, but the basic
design concept of a braided core has not changed.
with the development of the double braided design came a twisting and braiding process to align all fibers
parallel to the running axis of the rope. This
design provides maximum abrasion resistance and
rope ware life, as well as greater control and stability
under tension through controlled elongation.
Rope Designed for
these improvements enable rope manufacturers to offer
the most versatile assortment of braided ropes designed
specifically for various applications. By varying
the fibers to alter the characteristics of the rope,
a variety of ropes are offered, each with its own
distinctive performance oriented characteristics.
Braid has the correct strength, elasticity,
and weight characteristics for equine applications.
The core and cover move separately to provide the
live feel necessary for refinement of communication
between horse and human.
