What is the braiding of a halter?
Halter are a kind of hat for binding and guiding horses. It is easy to make your own customizable halter, and the use of a braided cord allows you to design the halter with your own color selection. You can use different colours for each individual stallion to help identify the right halter.
Avoid friction by using a smooth knotted string and hold the tightness during weaving for an even stitch. Do several of these easy holsters and hold them in the vehicle or in various places around the shed in case of spill. Place the measurement around his nostril about 4 inch above the holes in his nostril, and then take the measurement of the gap from that point above his earlobe.
It will be possible to adjust the final holster, but these readings will give a start point. Slice the 20 -foot long string in two 10 -foot length sections. Attach the third string and bind the three parts together to a loosely tied joint about 6 inch from the end.
Bind a ribbon around the rope and bind it to a solid item like a boom. It will help you to keep the suspense when you begin to weaving. Weave the lines together by leading the lefthand line over the central line and then the right line over the central line.
While you work, you will see the mesh begin to expand. Hold the ends of the strings well apart on both sides of the work so that they do not get tangled. Proceed with the weaving until you have reached a length of approx. 15 cm. Loosen the line and the knots so that the ends of the line are loosen.
Half-pleat the weave to make a strap and align the shorter loosely ends with the primary cables. Hang the strap around a fixed point and thread the shorter ends into the mesh frame to secure it. Proceed with weaving until the long string is ready.
At the end, bind a node to avoid it from dissolving. Insert the tied end through the small strap to create a bigger strap with a size of about 8-inch. The noseband of the halter is formed. Put the long end of the plait over your horse's top behind the ear and bind a lump at the point where it connects to the noseband.
If you wish, the free end of the cable becomes a reins and allows you to cuff it.
