“Use a lead line of appropriate length to safely train your horse to load.”
- Monty Roberts

Monty developed this lead line to allow your horses to learn incrementally. This is the heart of Monty's educational message.

Qualities - How does it differ from round ropes?

  • Soft - cushioned cotton core and special soft nylon, double stitched to last
  • Easier to hold than round ropes - any size hand can get a good grip
  • Super strong nylon doesn’t break down in dirt and moisture
  • Brightly colored for easy identification of length (even in the dirt!) - 17’ (5 meters) is BLUE
  • Durable - brass snaps hold up in harsh conditions

Uses - Why 17 feet (5,18 meters)?

  • A good length to use for Join-Ups in the Round Pen, and the weighted end tosses easily and creates a nice slapping sound for send away
  • A good safe length for trailer, lorry, van, float, or horsebox loading
  • A good length for Dually Halter training for leading manners, standing still, baulking, or nappy horses
  • The perfect length for leading a horse from atop another pony horse - not too much line in your hands but plenty of length to safely lead.
