Mecate reins

Base price $300

The mecate is a long rein and becomes a lead when used with a snaffle. The mecate may be used for everyday riding, for example, when getting off your horse to repair a trough or fence on the farm or when you want to lead another horse. Other uses for the mecate is when you pony a young horse and then swap to ride that youngster. I have also used my mecate to work a horse on the ground in the snaffle. 

The word mecate is Spanish for the rope on your hackamore, traditionally made from mane hair. When a mecate is used with a hackamore it is NOT for the same reasons that you would use it with a snaffle bit. Please note that the mecate has different applications in that situation. 

Please view the video on my facebook page showing how to set up your mecate on a snaffle bit using slobber straps.


Split Reins

Base price $240

Split reins are suitable for all types of riding. All my reins are designed to be attached to your snaffle bit with slobber straps. 

For over 25 years I have been making these reins for stockmen and women Australia wide.

Please view the video on my facebook page that demonstrates how to attach them to your bridle.


Halter Leads

Base price $80

Halter Leads are available in many colours and lengths and are most suited to a rope halter.

Leads also make lovely gifts for your equine friends and are available in a vast range of colours. These are an attractive addition to your tack room and may be customised to suit your requirements.

Please view the video on my facebook page showing how to attach a lead to the rope halter.
