Product Description

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.  

Diameter:  1/4"

Approx. Tensile Strength:  2,031 lbs.

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.

  1. Just right 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jun 2019

    The firmness is flexible enough for knotting, firm enough to hold its shape, and yet has enough 'yes ma'am' in it to handle a horse.

  2. Oustanding halter cord 5 Star Review

    Ordered this for a client that wanted several halters in stable colors (burgandy, black & tan). She loved it and it worked up beautifully.

    Bought this rope to tie horse halters, it was great, flexible enough to work with yet firm enough to hold shape.

  4. Nice results 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th May 2018

    I bought 3 different kinds of rope to tie halters and this one is my favorite. The knots stay tight and it has a good feel.

  5. Quality rope halter rope 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Dec 2017

    Quality rope for rope halters. I have some Lazy K Corral rope halters that use this rope. I carefully looked through the choices at CBKnot and independently selected the same rope. Firm is important to me. Not flimsy. Not stiff.

  7. outstanding 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jul 2017

    This cord is perfect. A bit stuff but flexible enough to tie knots in, no stretch as far as I could see. Great color, too.

  8. Great Halter Rope 5 Star Review

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

  9. Firm Tight Cover 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Nov 2016

    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.

  10. Firm Double Braid Poly 1/4" (12 Pick) 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Oct 2016

    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.

  11. great product 5 Star Review

    This product makes great halters.

  12. serves it's purpose 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Aug 2016

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

  13. Great line! Firm Double Braid Polyester 1/4" (12 Pick) 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2016

    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.

  14. Firm double-braid polyester 1/4" is great for horse halters 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Dec 2015

    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.

  15. Really a great rope 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th May 2015

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

  16. Great line! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jan 2015

    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.

  17. As good as the famous Aussie trainer who sells his halters for $39.99! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Oct 2014

    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!

  18. The best rope I have found! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Oct 2014

    Make halters with this rope. Easy to work with, perfect amount of stiffness and holds up to being used. Best rope and the best price! Shipping is fast, too!

  19. The Best Training Halter Rope..!! Bar None..!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th May 2014

    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..

  20. Great halter cord 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jan 2014

    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.
