Rope by the foot is listed as 1ft. This rope will come in a continuous length. For example, if you ordered 10 feet of rope, you will be shipped 10 continuous feet of rope and not 10, 1ft. pieces.
Rope Construction: Double Braid Polyester
A double braid rope refers to a braided rope cover over a braided rope core. Basically, it is a rope over another rope. These ropes are often flexible and easy to handle. Most double braid ropes are spliceable. Double braid rope is often called yacht braid and can be made with combinations of fibers or the same fibers. To get a stiffer or firmer double braid rope, the cover can be braided tighter which increases its “hardness.”
**This rope is a firm rope and very difficult if not impossible to splice. It is a braided rope over another braided rope, however it has a tighter braid in the cover to stiffen the rope. This is a great rope. Although it is tighter and stiffer than most double braids, it is not as stiff as halter cords. Previously called 12 Pick.
Rope Fibers: Polyester over Polyester
Due to its strength, low stretch, excellent sunlight resistance, and excellent abrasion resistance properties, polyester is a preferred fiber for many natural horse trainers.

Holds its shape well, which makes it easy to get over the horses nose!

I intend to use this double braid polyester rope for a
roller furler halyard. The cover has a very dense weave. The standard double braid I was using did not last because the cam cleat chewed it up. The dense cover should stand up to the metal teeth on the cleat.

An excellent rope for halters a little less than firm that still holds its shape. Great for 2 & 4 knot side pulls. Easy to work with.

Is a little stiffer than expected but works well and serves it's purpose

I love this line. This is the third purchase I've made. This line is stiff. It doesn't stretch and it's very durable for prolonged outdoor use.

It's thin enough to fit under a bridle without much bulk, but firm enough to keep its shape. That makes it easier to put on the horse because the noseband stays open. Knots up easily, too, and seems to 'hold' the knots.

While I find this rope a challenge to work with, my clients love it. :) It does make good halters.

This is really good line and exactly what I needed for my project. It is stiff yet easy to handle, has almost no stretch even when wet, and promises the durability I need.

I really love the stiff rope halters. As a trainer, I find them helpful in getting the horse's attention on you. You can't train if you don't have the horse's attention....same as with teaching kids. Kids and horses can't learn if they are not listening!

If you are looking for rope to make a horse halter, look no more.. This is what you need.. Very high strength, stiff and holds knots extremely well.. Very uniform diameter end to end..

This halter cord is firm just as advertised and I personally wouldn't go for anything softer. I'm new to the horse world and newer still to making halters but I much prefer working with the proper materials as opposed to standard hardware rope.
I've already ordered more than two hundred feet of this type, its good stuff.
