Clip of the week – Tying a rope halter

If you have any trouble at all learning or teaching how to correctly tie a rope halter check out Wess Hicks “Tying a Cowboy Rope Halter” on YouTube.  I really like the way he explains it, he makes it easy to remember, teach and learn.

    This was so hard for me to learn at first…when I first a rope halter…I remember standing out there thinking “how does this dang thing work?” The next day I had a step by step instruction sheet I found on the internet…where was Wess when I needed him:-)? Good stuff.

    My husband learned to tie knots in the Coast Guard, yet he’s afraid of our rope halter. I’m glad you posted this, because I’ve been tying it above the tree.

    Glad to help! Those rope halters are confusing when you first learn to tie them.

    I really like the analogy with the rabbit they way Wess describes it. It makes it so easy to remeber…
