Halter-Tying Success, Second Edition

Traditional halter-tying knowledge has been carefully captured and clearly presented in Halter-Tying Success.

Step-by-step, illustrated instructions show how to tie a Fiador Knot and a few well-placed Double-Overhand Knots in a single length of rope to create a correct-fitting halter for any size horse. (It's perfect for ponies and mules, too!)

For this second edition (contents), new illustrations have been added and greater emphasis has been placed on the importance of tying a rope halter that fits.

A chart lists measurements for six "standard" halter sizes, from foal to large horse. Guidelines for tying a custom-fit halter are also provided.

Information on how a halter should fit and how to measure a horse for a halter allow you to decide which approach—standard-size or custom-fit—will result in the best-fitting halter for your horse.

A very simple method for tying the Fiador Knot is included!
