Jumping Neck Rope

Postby Strikit » Wed Aug 28, 2013 7:38 pm

I did jumping in one of my horsemanship classes and the instructor used what he called a neck rope on the horse, kind of as a handle to use to make sure we didn't fall off. I tried looking it up on horse.com but all I found was calf roping neck ropes and I'm not sure whether it's the same thing or not. I want one to use because I ride bareback a lot and I want to move to brideless as well with my horse, but I would like to still have that kind of as a hand hold.

Where can I find a neck rope? And if it's not really called that, what is it really called?

It's not necessary to buy them. I just buckle a stirrup leather around my horses' necks.

I think a lot of the special equipment various popular trainers promote and sell is more about the trainer's bottom line than the horse.

I agree with hecate - WHAT you use is pretty inconsequential to HOW you use it, and the equipment these clinicians sell pretty much is to line their pockets. I've seen people have success using a leadrope, 8' reins, etc. Personally, I would likely use something of smaller thickness - along the lines of what a lunge whip is, but experiment! What works for others may not work for you and your horse.

I think it's funny that people will spend $50 on a certain clinician's 'catch rope' when all you need is a simple length of mid-weight cording or even a length of baler twine! :lol: Both fit nicely in your pocket and cost substantially less!
