Leads with Shanks
Are you looking for a little more control with leading or working with your horse? A lead rope with a shank, also referred to as a stud chain, might be just what you are looking for. Used either over the nose or under the chin, a lead rope with chain can help your horse focus on you and respond to your commands more readily. Whether you use your shank for bathing, daily handling, in-hand training, or competing in stock horse halter classes, we have the right lead rope for you in stock.
We carry lead ropes with shanks from trusted equine manufacturers such as Gatsby, Perri's Leather, Tory Leather, and Weaver Leather. With nylon, cotton, and leather options available, we have something to fit every equestrian's taste and budget.
The Lami-Cell Cotton Lead Rope with Brass Plated Chain and the Weaver Cotton Lead Rope with Chain are perennial favorites among our customers. Not only are these economical options soft on your hands and easy to grip, they are also exceeding simple to care for and clean.
A leather lead rope is the perfect compliment for your favorite leather halter. The Gatsby Leather Lead With Chain and the Perri's Leather Lead with 30" Chrome Chain are popular options for everyday use. We love the Tory Leather Braided Leather Lead with Chain, with its unique detailing and equestrian flair.
In the event of a broken lead rope, we are pleased to carry Replacement Lead Chains from Weaver Leather.
