Follow these easy steps to create your own knotted rope halter for horses.
Practical and inexpensive, rope halters are a time-honored tradition for many horsemen and a wonderful training tool.
Have you ever wondered how to make a rope halter for horses?
Two experts at Columbia Basin Knot Company shared with The American Quarter Horse Journal their 34-step process for making a quality homemade rope halter. In our How to Make a Rope Halter report, each step includes a full-color photo to help guide you through the process.
Here’s Step 1 of creating your very own rope halter:
When tying halters for the first time, use 22 to 25 feet of rope. Once you become proficient, you can make a halter with about 20 feet of rope. Take your piece of rope and fold it in half. At the center point, tie a simple overhand knot. Snug the knot up. Then to the left of the knot, tie another simple overhand knot. Now you have two simple overhand knots. The knots should be 11 inches from the middle of one knot to the middle of the other knot. Adjust the knots until they are 11 inches apart, and tighten them up. Then take the rope and fold it with the two overhand knots together.
In this valuable report, you’ll master the fiador knot and understand how to cut and whip the rope with a soldering iron or rope cutting gun.
