Each halter is hand tied. Readily available in natural, hot pink and purple. Other colors coming soon. Pony, Arab and draft sizes can be made to order. $20 plus shipping. $30 plus shipping with 6 foot lead.
Mecates have always been used as a training tool in the Californios style. Mohair makes a nice heavy mecate that transfers signal to a horse well without being tough on your hands like traditional horse hair. The natural fibre is strong, durable and has good grip, which can be lacking in the man-made fibres. Each mecate is twisted by hand out of 100% mohair, and finished with a leather popper. Various color combinations available, so please let us know what colors you would like. You can choose from 4-ply, or 6-ply with a core for a heavier, more traditional mecate.
***Sorry, we are not able to offer mecates for sale at this time. We hope to be able to supply custom mecates again soon. If you would like us to notify you when they are available, please tell us and we will add you to the waiting list.***
