    As some of you know, I make tack out of nylon parachute cord, and have time to take some new orders right now (and I can't believe I already am saying this, but if you're thinking Christmas....). If you are interested or have questions, you can send me a PM, email acordingtoyou@gmail.com or visit my website at A-Cord-ing To You Custom Tack - Quality hand braided nylon tack made just the way you want it!

    Advantages of paracord tack I make
    - Very easy to care for (or not care for if you are so inclined [​IMG])
    - Strong and durable
    - Won't rot or fade
    - Has great feel and maintains it over time
    - Huge variety of color choices
    - Affordable
    - Completely custom so you get exactly what you need or just want!


    If you are wondering "I wonder if she can make...." there's a good chance the answer is yes. I can make almost anything that is usually a "strap good" out of leather or web, and "rope items" as well.

    Some examples of common items....

    *Please note I'm giving price ranges as an idea...actual price depends on exactly what options you choose. Contact me for a quote*


    Reins

    Gaming/roping reins - $15-25

    Longer trail/training "loop reins" - $20-35
    [​IMG]

    Split reins - $30-40

    Accessories

    Halters and Leads

    [​IMG]

    Lead ropes - $15 - 30
    [​IMG]

    Trailer Ties or Cross ties - $10 - 35
    [​IMG]


    Dog Items

    Collars - $5 - 20
    [​IMG]

    Leashes - $10 - 20

    By no means is this a complete list...if you have something in mind, just ask



    Payment - PayPal preferred but money orders are ok too. I reserve the right to ask for a deposit before beginning a custom order.

    Timing - I do my best to fill orders in a timely manner, but do keep in mind they are hand made and this is a hobby, not my full time job. Small items can be completed faster than complex items or sets. Allow 1-2 weeks on average.

    Shipping - is via Canada Post from Ontario. For US customers usually around $7 for a small item, $10-15 for more items or ones with lots of metal pieces.

    I've never seen a cowboy halter before. I've seen plenty of rope, but never one with those kind of knots and such.

    Did you have a picture of one on a horse?

    Hmmm....no pictures that were taken just to show the halter, but i guess I have a couple where a horse happens to be wearing one, so you can get an idea

    (I think the reason it's so far back on her poll there ^^ is that crazy mane....these usually stay put exceptionally well, no sliding). Oh and that's a pony wearing a "horse" halter..they are very adjustable!

    That one's ^^baler twine :rolleyez:, but same idea.


    They are very unique and most people haven't seen them before. They are very hard to appreciate without seeing them in person. I really like the feel of them, and adjusting the size is so easy.

    Also, while I usually make them to do up with a braided button knot, it's not the only way. I can use a small buckle or leave it to tie like a rope halter.

    Oh and the lead attachment is also very versatile....it can be set up so that the lead is attached (yet removable if you need), where you would snap a lead right onto the braiding, or with a metal loop to snap to.

    No problem. If you are interested in getting one, let me know. They are actually one of my favorite things to make.
