Custom Measurements & Notes

Product Description

This modified rope halter/bitless bridle is perfect for trail rides, just snap on your reins and go. You can go from training to riding without the hassle of more tack. Can also be used with a bit!

This halter 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 and the Fiador knot. I have also woven paracord (yellow is pictured) around the noseband for a softer feel for the horse and a pleasing look to us. You can also request to have a spiral weaved noseband instead.

If you need some help tying a rope halter, I’ve created a step-by-step video course to walk you through the process. You can learn more about that here.

Paracord Colors

These are the different colors available for the braided paracord noseband. Your noseband comes in either one or two colors. You can see the different variations available in the “Braid Styles” tab.


Actual paracord colors will vary from the photos. Lighting conditions, monitor settings, etc… all affect the images. A lot of these colors are hard to photograph clearly enough to show detail and not get a color change or reflections. The photos shown here are “representative” of the actual colors. Colors can and will vary. Refunds and exchanges will not be granted due to color.

Please Note: The dye lots may vary from each production of the cord, they are all within specifications, but may not match up exact from one purchase to the next. If you need exact matches please purchase the amount needed. All purchases made at the same time will match, but we can’t guarantee they will match on another purchase.

Rope Colors

Upgrade your order with one of these custom rope colors. Most  of the rope in these other colors are also made of polyester, but a few are made from nylon. Make sure to select your chosen color above in the dropdown menu under “Custom Rope Color Upgrade” there is an additional charge as well as added processing time.

    Fashionable yet functional, absolutely outstanding! Since I have received this halter, that “traditional” nylon halter has been collecting dust in the barn. It has been an asset to my rescue mare’s training, and the custom-color (turquoise & yellow) braided noseband draws many compliments too! The sidepull rings also gives an alternative to her bridle – bit or bitless. The quality far exceeds anything else you’ll find out there. A tack essential, for sure.

    The seller-craftsman is wonderful to work with, responsive and motivated. I order the cob- arabian size…..Teensy but small but works. Like to see him make it a bit bigger. This could of been all my fault for not ordering regular horse size for my arabs.

    I do like the style, the materials and mostly the big distance from the eyes.
