Lead Ropes for Horses
Every horse rider needs to have a lead rope to attach to their horse headcollar
. Horse lead ropes come in many different styles, designs, colours, material and clips. Lead ropes are primarily made from cotton, but do come in other materials like nylon, polypropylene and leather. Designed with your horse's safety and comfort in mind, lead ropes are integral to the horse headcollar
as they allow you to lead your horse when on the ground.
Horse lead ropes, as the name does suggest, are made from various types of rope and is roundly shaped. Usually they are around three quarters of an inch (or 2 centimetres) in diameter. In most cases lead lines are leather or flat webbing and somewhere between three quarters of an inch to an inch thick (between 1.9 centimetres and 2.5 centimetres) wide. When it comes to show use these sizes may be even more narrow. Flat lines are less bulky and thick, making them much for comfortable for the horse and the hand leading them, however this may lack the necessary thickness and strength needed for tying.
