A handy training tool for the advanced horse and rider for riding bridle-less and in preparation for doing ground work at liberty. Twisted marine cord provides stiffness to aid in cueing; leather breakaway keeps horse safe; leather strap on tail-end allows easy connection to the saddle when not in use.
What Julie has to say:
I designed this neck rope to be a safe and effective tool to use for riding your horse without the bridle--the ultimate sign of an excellent horse and rider. The neck rope gives you great control when needed for turning or stopping without the bridle. The stiffness and contours of the rope helps your horse feel the aid better and the leather breakaway and connector strap are safe for your horse and convenient for you. Aside from bridle-less work, this neck rope is also very handy as an intermediate step between doing groundwork with a halter/lead and working at liberty.
