Classic and simple, a leather lead rope can be seen at barns and horse shows across the country. Highly functional, a leather rope attaches to your halter and allows you to safely and effectively control your horse.
We carry a wide selection of leather lead ropes from trusted manufacturers such as Gatsby, GT Reid, Nunn Finer, Perri's Leather, and Tory Leather. Available in a myriad of leather finish colors, like havana, black, dark oil, and chestnut, as well as shanked and non-shanked varieties, we have a lead rope for every taste and budget.
Our shanked lead ropes are available with both brass and chrome chains. The GT Reid Black Leather Lead with Solid Brass Chain and the Gatsby Leather Lead With Chain are popular among our customers as versatile lead shanks that can transition easily from the barn to the horse show, using the chain either under the chin or over the nose for added control. If you are looking for additional panache for your competition lead, check out the Tory Leather Partial Rolled Bridle Leather Lead and the Tory Leather Braided Leather Lead With Chain. Not only do they look great, they are great quality as well!
Plain leads are a wonderful option if your horse doesn't need the aid of chain. The Perri's Havana Leather Lead with Solid Brass Snap and the Nunn Finer Leather Lead look sharp and are great for showing your horse in hand.
Caring for your leather lead rope similar to caring for any other piece of leather tack or equipment. Be sure to use a high quality leather cleaner and leather conditioner on a frequent basis to maintain the integrity of the leather.
If coordination is your thing (and let's face it, what equestrian doesn't love to complement their tack?), we have leather halters that match many of our leather lead ropes.
