A Look at the Current Inventory

I've been continuously making new halters, pigging strings, and horn knots. So, I decided to take a picture of all the current products I've put out over the past couple weeks. Everything is made of paracord except for the white halter in the front. It is made from solid braid nylon rope. It's a lot stronger, and I wanted to see if it would be more popular. The last picture is a close up of the flat braid that makes the nose band of the white halter.


  1. Is there any good books/ websites that you know of that have a tutorial on how to make a halter like your white halter?

    1. Tom Hall has some pretty good books. "Western Tack tips" for one. The "Encyclopedia for Rawhide & Leather Braiding" by Bruce Grant is great as well.

      As far as how to tie this exact halter, there probably aren't any how-to's. If you can see the picture good enough its mostly 4 Strand round braids, a couple of 8 strand round braids where the 4 strand RBs meet, and a 4 strand doubled plait for the nose piece. There is one spanish ring knot, and all the terminal knots are wall and crown knots.

      All of the plaits and knots are basic, its just the part of putting them all together that can be difficult.
