It'll Do Farm: IDF rope work and tack.
Why use a Rope Halter?
Rope Halters encourage horses to respond with respect without fear. Their light "feel" increases communication between you and your horse. The placement of the knots allow more control of the head and nose. Even beginners can start to build a more relaxed yet respectful relationship with their horse.
We began to use rope halters on our horse farm, It'll Do Farm about 15 years ago. Because we stand an Arabian breeding stallion, Fadjurs Gusto, I wanted more control without causing pain to my horse or myself. But when our riding students began to prefer them I decided to learn to make rope halters. All of us at the farm are small people or children, our horses were often green colts or abused horses that we were restarting. In all cases we found that horses of all sorts respected these halters and as a result respected us more. And so we were hooked. Today it is difficult to find a web halter on our farm. More people are choosing a Natural Horsemanship approach, and for this, rope tack is a great addition to your equipment. As local cowboys began to request that we make their rope halters, IDF Rope Work, became a real business. Therefore, we find ourselves today one of the foremost manufactures of quality rope halters and leads.
