Traditional, luxurious, hand braided 100% Australian mohair has the life and feel of no other fibre I have ridden with or braided. This fibre is as soft as butter but has great weight and is very durable.

My mohair mecate's are generally 12 or 8 strands to achieve a standard diameter to  suit a dbbraiding hackamore, bosal or under bridle/bosalita. They include a signature dbbraiding kangaroo leather heel knot.
Mecate's and reins are braided one strand at a time NOT twisted.

Custom ordered lengths and widths can be made to suit your requirements.
