  • Cob sized rope halter with tie clip

    Hi. My daughter’s new pony needs some better ground manners and responds well to a rope halter instead of the leather one she came with. No need for a nose chain, safer for everyone. But I had to loose and re-tie the knots so now there’s big loops where the fiador was and it’s still too loose. I can’t find con sized anywhere. Also, I’d feel more secure if it had an easy open/close hook for my daughter.

    Does anyone know of a brand or a person who sells these?

    there is a custom maker -
    "do or do not, there is no TIE"
    She will make to measure, and it snaps instead of ties.

    Be aware, adding metal hardware to a rope halter means it is no longer unbreakable- if they set back against it, the clip/snap WILL break.

    My mare broke hers last week, but I used it fine for 2-3 years

      These are great halters. Best of both worlds.
      They make pony sizes. I got one 2 years ago and won't put anything else on my horse. I bought the economy halter for a couple of teenagers at my barn and they both love them too.
      Edited to add, the company was moving to a different state this spring so you may need to call or email.

        OP, this is my favorite rope halter maker:

        I am a huge fan of the Firm rope. It's stiff enough to release pressure on the horse when you do. That's key for teaching a horse to be light in your hand.

        Also, Sundance Halters seem to be well-sized. She knows the size and dimensions of a horse's head, so the knots are in the right places. I think she does give measurements for her various sizes, but you can have her make you a custom halter, too.

        Ooh... and the huge variety of colors. Yum!

        I'm sure you can get what you want, and promptly at Sundance Halters.

          I’m another fan of the hybrid halter, I got the “economy” since I’m basically cheap and saw no real advantage to the pricier version for my purposes. I guess the pricier version might have a little more “oomph” to it and might be a better choice in your (edited to ass—as in the OP, not Kyrabee) situation, though. I like how I can use it easily with standard leadropes and cross ties, I like that my kidlet can get it on the horse without worrying about her sloppy knot-tying ability, I like how it doesn’t shift around on the face if I’m applying a sideways or upwards force on it (like when lunging or discouraging a grass grab—the ring to which the lead snaps slides to the side).

            Thank you everyone! I went with the Do Or Do Knot because I need the pressure of the thin rope on the poll that the hybrid doesn’t have. The Sundance ones look great but I wanted the clip on feature. I wish more hand tiers offered it.
            Anyway, thanks again.

              B&H Rope Halters. They sell several different sizes of halters, leads, etc. All hand made, very affordable. You have options on clips, or ties. You also have a choice on the number/placement of knots. I believe they do custom work as well. Very good quality, I've had my oldest one for 5 years now, has been washed several times, still looks brand new.
