The Rope Hackamore, or “Lope Rope” is a must-have for the serious tack room. This lope rope has a nylon rope noseband with a browband throat latch headstall and long braided nylon reins. The Lope Rope is easy on the horse, a non-entity when you leave it alone, but effective when you pull your horse around in it.
Lope Ropes can be used for warming up, exercising, trail riding or conditioning horses, offering them relaxation by not having anything in their mouth. Some trainers refer to rope hackamores as “Breaking Hackamores”, as they are also a solid option for starting colts.
