Polyester or nylon yacht rope is recommended. It will give you a durable, high-quality halter designed to withstand barn life. You can buy some online at the Homestead Tack Store.

To make this halter, you’ll need to learn the double overhand knot and the fiador knot. It can be a little tricky to master them, but with some practice you’ll be a pro.
