Training halter £35+pp

Handmade in house, this pressure and release halter is made of the highest quality 8mm marine braid on braid rope. We use this rope so that you get an instant release as it is quite slippy. If the rope is rough then it has the potential to catch and will slow down the release of the halter which then cheats the horse when he gives you the required behaviour.

The halter work I do with these halters is the cornerstone of everything I do, they are excellent for teaching your horse to lead, load and to work through situation to enable on going training. I generally put them on over a head collar, the nose band of the halter sits just about the nose band of a well fitted head collar, this will help to keep the halter in place so that it doesn't slip down to the sensitive part of the nose.

Each halter comes with instructional dvd, if you need another format please contact us directly.

Training Halter 1

12ft (approx)Training rope £40+pp

This is an essential training tool, it is made from 14mm braid on braid high quality marine rope. Its the perfect length and weight for early training when you don't want the horse to far away from you. It is also a great length for horses that have the potential to be tricky in hand as if they do misbehave you have time to get out of the way without losing them. If they are tricky in hand it would be worth looking at the groundwork videos available to purchase on the online learning page.

All ropes come with a clip and a leather tassel (If the clip breaks we will repair for the cost of the clip and p&p; call for quote).

24ft Training Rope

Longlines £39.99+p&p

This is a pair of 30ft lines similar to lunge lines, the difference is the length, the longlines are 10ft longer to enable the outside rein to go round the horse.

Long lining on a circle gives far better control creating a more even, balanced horse both physically and mentally.

NB: colour depends on stock

Pair of Longlines

Horseman’s halter £20+pp

We do not make these halters as they are quite a specialist halter, they are made from 6mm rope.

I use a horseman’s halter once I have trained to a horse to yield to pressure. I use it for lunging and also with youngsters in the early stages over a bridle.

Horseman Halter

Horseman’s string £12+pp

A slip 6ft string made with 6mm marine rope. I find this such a useful piece of equipment, I use it for many things; a neck strap, I tie stirrups together when I am long lining, also essential to using the long lines in positions 1&2.

There is a video on the online learning page that shows all the uses.

Over & under £5+ £1.50pp

This is to create forward movement in the horse when riding. It is used in an over and under motion (like the cowboys do with their reins one leaving the town at speed). It is made with a loop to fit over your wrist and has very soft ends as it's visual stimulation that causes the forward moment, if you get it wrong you don't want to sting the horse.

There is a video on the online learning page if you want to see how it works.
