Tying a Rope HalterBinding a rope holder
What is the best way to bind a rope halter with a fixed eye?
I found many different manuals on-line that will show you how to bind a rope halter with a Fiador-node. So, I chose to make my own videotutorial to see if I could participate in this funny and interesting sport with other equestrian enthusiasts in my own and hopefully simpler way.

However cautious you are with the rope, it always gets untidy and I would need to loose my place and begin again. It took me not only a long while to make the Fiador knots right, but my mare also had a strangely formed skull, so that it never fitted properly and I had to bind it again and again.
I tried to bind a halter with the above directions for the first time and it took several attempts. I had a long face and a romantic nostril on my mousse, so the halter I made was much too small and just fitted everywhere. When I knotted that damn Fiador knots over and over.
It was all because I didn't know what dimensions to use to properly adjust the holster. So, I spend a great deal of my life looking for a way out on the web. Then I walked over a page where I could see some photographs of a much easier way to bind the Fiador node on the basis of a curve.
The following is a break-down of the simple way to bind the FIADORO node. Because I' m pretty quick in the movie, and that's a daunting node, I've outlined the moves you have to take to bind the finador node in these pictures below. Now, that we have solved the FIADORO node and I have found a way to simply bind it, the next part of the problem was to find the right shape for my horses.

As part of my efforts to enhance the function of the halter I made, I kept measuring and tying the halter for each of the horses I had ahold of.
I was able to perfectionize the formulae I use to create tailor-made holsters for every type of horses or animals. Have you got a difficult mount to match? I' ve put together some fast practice video to show you how to measure your horses and enter them in my work-sheets.
Don't keep redoing the holster because it doesn't work. Do you know exactly what you need to bind when you succeed together with the workout movie above. Need a rope of the highest standard for your halter?
