Rope halter with fiador
I love step by step instructions with pictures, I didn't even struggle with the fiador. I made one with bale string, not pretty obviously, but this time if my colt breaks it or loses it, I won't be losing R100. Great post. Already pinned it and I am sure I will be making more halters in future.
make sure to go the correct direction on the last step of the fiador. if you pass the ends the wrong way the knot wont hold. if you look close, the one i tied for the first picture is correct. the one later in the instructable is backwards and (knot) pretty.
glad you liked it
see the difference?
A friend showed me how to make rope halters with a Fiador knot. That is the part that took me the longest. You instructions are a lot like the instructions she gave me, just a little different on the nose knots. I made my first one last week and it doesn't look bad for the first try. She also told me that the smaller and stiffer the rope the harsher it is; the larger and softer is is for well broke horses. 1/4' to 3/8" is about normal. If you use larger rope you will need to change measurements because the knots use up more length. Happy tying. She didn't teach me about the whipping. I'd like to know more about it.
I have a rope halter with a fiador knot where the leadrope goes, but somehow my horse complete messed up the knot. Everything is still attached and in a weird knot, but I don't have the two loops where the lead rope clips. Any tips?
Rope and Paracord Bosal or Indian Side Pull
I made this in to a 4H project I think it will turn out great. Thanks for the insperation.
I got the rope in the picture at Tractor Supply in 50 or 100 ft (I can't remember the length. ) Then I wised up and ordered solid braid derby rope in bulk online as it was much cheaper. Lowes or Home Depot might have it as well. It really doesn't matter just so it's good quality, solid rope.
Love this thank you where can i find the bigger rope in other colors if you know
Uh huh...so long as you tie it around your own neck and pull it up snug. Works for me too. POS
This is great...the photos you found on Wikipedia were, hands-down, the easiest to follow that I've found. Thanks!
Thanks so much for this great tutorial! I just finished my first one and can't wait to try it tomorrow. I used 3/8" black double braid with turquoise paracord for the accents. The only thing I added was waxed cord stitching under the paracord on all four loops for strength. Happy trails!
Really? Let's see it!
