Bottom strap of breeching goes to girth-regardless the style.

Breeching: This is REAL breeching that is user friendly to all. Designed with horses in mind.  Why use breeching? Breeching helps stabilize a load more than any crupper, and is also nicer to the animal.  Some horses and mules do not like a crupper, or they put up their tail up or hold it off to the side and off goes the crupper.  Some equines have such a difficult tail set it is very hard to properly set a crupper and the animal ends up galled or worse yet, ornery and may buck.  Thanks to Ronda and Clete from CR Ass Ranch, we took breeching to a whole new level.  Made with \ your loved one in mind. This breeching is half the weight anything else on the market.  Stronger than any leather and more stable with ten - yes 10 –  1 inch soft nylon straps from 30 to 40 inches long to accommodate both small and huge equines. All the hardware is stainless, no more rust ever.  The ten stainless steel sliders and 6 swivel trigger snaps make for quick and easy adjustments, on and off.  Gone for good are those horrible Conway buckles and dry, brittle – rotten leather that is impossible to work with. The strap is now 3 inches wide and 37 inches long and completely padded with the HVF Soft-Touch padding.  No more cutting into and galling your animals’ buttocks.  This is the most awesome breeching ever developed by real mule and horse riders alike – we all hope you love it as much as we do! Comes in black or brown.   Item #: HR-BR –Price $198.00

Portable / adjustable pail / bucket holder:  This easy-to-use pail/bucket holder will not rust, rot or corrode.  Made of stainless steel hardware and NYLON this holder is strong, completely safe and will last a lifetime.  22 inches long with 1-inch black nylon; 4-inch Stainless Steel spring snap and a 2-inch Stainless Steel O-ring.  HVF exclusive. Item # HR-PH – Price $11.50

 

Bells:  Bells are commonly used to alert wild life when you are riding and are used on high-lines, picket-lines and fencing to alert owners when things are getting out of control and require attention.  The large cowbell is copper and measures 4 x 3 x 2 and has a deeper ring.  The smaller liberty bell is brass and measures 2 x 2.5 inches and has a tingly ring.   Item # HR-CB Price $5.50 cow bell or Item # HR-LB Price $2.00 for the liberty bell.

Picket Line Tightener: This "tight rope" is the ONLY way to tighten up your sagging picket/high line. It is so easy and yet ingenious (we were the inventor's inspiration for this gizmo, after he saw us struggling with our self-tightening knots). You may think about making one yourself but for the price offered… forget it. Just order one, you will never be sorry. How to use: Put your rope up and make it as tight as you can by hand. Then position the two knobs of the tightener so that the rope runs between them. Then firmly hold the tightener and begin to walk-twisting the tightner so that the rope twists around the knobs of the tightner. When very tight, latch the clip on the line. HVF-Exclusive. Item # HR-PT – Price $30.00

*Safety Tip* When horse camping, space your leads 20 to 24 feet apart, giving each animal an area that is 10 to 12 feet. Set the length of the animals lead long enough where they can lie down. Make sure that he is 8 to 10 feet away from any vehicle, trailer or trees.

Twist n’ Flex:  This giant twist tie is a handy twist, perfect for so many uses. The strong, plastic-coated iron wire is 32 inches long. It is further coated with soft foam and is simple to twist – as one would do with a twist-tie.  This Twist n' Flex is perfect for tying up a loose end of rope on your picket or high line, for tying up pails, buckets, tarps – you name it.  No messing with baler twine and then with scissors or knife cutting it loose.  This is a wonderful product to have with a price that cannot be beat. Packaged as a pair of two, red or black color.  Item # HR-TW- Price $9.99


No-Knot Eliminator Picket Fastener: By popular demand, I’ve included this picket fastener. If you use a line heavier than a half inch or a line with a lot of stretch, (basically not the rope we sell) you will find that the other picket fasteners will "pop" loose. With this No-Knot-Eliminator I can absolutely guarantee a secure hold! Item # HR-KNOT - Price $5.99

*Safety Tip* When horse camping, space your leads 20 to 24 feet apart, giving each animal an area that is 10 to 12 feet. Set the length of the animals lead long enough where they can lie down. Make sure that he is 8 to 10 feet away from any vehicle, trailer or trees.

The Horse Positioner: At last a picket or high line fastener that you can put on both a high-line cable and a picket rope too! A fastener that you can move without lowering or loosening your high line/picket line. This ingenious little loop attaches easily to rope or cable stays put and will not slide. Position your hay bags, feed bags and horses and reposition them with total ease. We offer a 2-inch ring for an additional $1.00. This ring will allow for a quicker release of your lead rope. To use the horse positioner: 1) Hold the positioner with your hand by the copper crimp in front of the line and about 2" above it. 2) With your other hand take the bottom of the "horse positioner" and bring it up behind the picket line and through its self and over,  forming a "larks head knot".   3) Repeat step 2 two more times. 4) Pull the loop down and straighten the rope so that copper clip is flat in front and the coils of rope are not over each other. 5) To test, slide "the horse positioner" side to side with your hand on the rope coils (not the bottom loop), next pull side ways with the bottom loop and it will lock each way. 6) Note, if the loop is too long, repeat step 2.
Item # HR-HP - Price $4.50 each or 4 for $16.00
Optional ring - Price $1.00

     Video for rope line and Video for cable or fixed line.
For additional ring:  $1.00 to each fastener.

I need the converter for my Bob Marshall sports saddle and I bought 2 this time to have 1 pair for spare. You seem to be the only one to carry this converter. I have used it before for my other Sports saddle and it is very good and durable.   BTW, I bought the first pair from Saddle Up Tack & Supplies, Inc one year ago and they say they do not carry this item anymore. And they gave me your website so I can order direct from you.  Thank you and I will recommend your site to my friends.  Have a great day,  Vivian.

P.S. I thought of another idea for the use of the "wrist swap"!!! My horse is now cured of her barn sourness, and now I attach the swap onto the middle of my reins, so it's there for use "in case", and I can also use it when my horse bends down to drink....I just grab it and she has all the rein she needs to get her head down, and I don't have to lean way over to keep a hold of the reins. It works great! It also gives me an extra leather strap in case I need to tie something to my saddle, or fix broken tack while on the trail. It's always there, and never in my way! I love it! Thanks so much, Kelly Ankney
