Oops Cotton Lead Rope
Our manufacturer’s error can only mean one thing…great savings for our customers. The overall quality is not as we had expected and length is inconsistent. The cotton is not woven as tightly as we would have liked and the length runs between 8’ and 9’. The leads are functionally acceptable and can still be very useful around home and the barn.

Features include:

  • Soft woven cotton
  • Feels great in the hand
  • Hand tied and braided
  • Brass snap
  • Length:  Between 8' and 9'
  • Colors: Black, Burgundy, Red, White, Royal Blue or Lilac

Extra Long Black Cotton Lead Rope
Whoops!  Our manufacturer apparently had a problem reading numbers on their tape measure since this batch of leads is 8”-14” longer that our specs call for.  This mistake can only mean one thing…great savings for our customers.  This lead’s overall quality is right on the money except for the length and is great for doing ground work, halter breaking and training.

Features include:


  • Soft, ‘no burn’ cotton for a comfortable feel and grip
  • 7/8” diameter
  • Brass plated snap
  • Black only
