Diameter - Although 3/4 inch or 5/8 inch diameter ropes are popular with some, most riders find that as they gain experience they prefer a 1/2 inch diameter lead rope. 1/2 inch ropes are lighter to carry - especially if you carry a few at a time. They are lighter on the horse's halter and create less bulk when around your saddle horn. Our lead ropes are 1/2 inch diameter.
11.5' - Trail Size is long enough to tie around trees, lead horses safely on the trail, bring in horses tied neck to neck, allow temporary, on the trail, lunge line work.
