This bridle is hand-tied from your choice of soft black 1/4″ double braided polyester yacht rope or firm black 1/4″ polyester halter cord. All knots are properly tied using the double overhand knot. Also has stainless steel rings to clip your reins to. I have also woven paracord (solid electric blue is pictured) on this halter around the noseband for a softer feel for the horse and a pleasing look to us. You can also request to have a spiral weavednoseband instead.
