TIED RIGHTTM   HALTERS

 

When used correctly, TIED RIGHTTM   HALTERS and Lead Ropes

for true leaders develops dependable balance in groundwork.

This leads to improved accuracy, flexibility and better

timing under saddle. Dont't wait any longer!

Leslie's right-tied halters come in a wide variety of colors, and help to promote balance by giving the owner/handler another great reason to work from the right side more often! Order a TIED RIGHT halter today and start the important job of re-positioning yourself and your horse for the safe and elegant rides you both deserve to -- and CAN -- soon enjoy together!

Sizes: Yearling ($30), AM-Arab ($35), AV-Quarter Horse ($45), L-Warmblood ($55)  and XL-Draft ($60).

 

Leslie's ropes are TERRIFIC!

They convey the lightest feel and can bring the lightest change of signal to your horse. They can be repeatedly cleaned in the washing machine and dried in a hot drier dozens and dozens of times with no ill-effect.

What don't they do?

Shrink, swell up, stiffen, fray, twist, dry out, resist coiling and rot.

Ask for them in 12 ft., 15 ft., 18 ft., 20 ft., and 25 ft. lengths. If you don't see the size you need, Leslie will cut you a custom length of rope to fit your needs.

Price: $3 a foot includes shipping and handling in the USA.
