As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Amish made cotton leads. Made in the USA. Chrome plated snap and clamp. Measures 1/2" x 6'. Comes with 24" chain.

Colorful Cotton Leads w/ Chain is rated 3.5238095238095237 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lead line, chain is a bit too long. Well made and has not unraveled yet. I did put a knot on the very end even though there is a metal clamp just to help prevent unraveling. The chain is about 5" too long. I use it over the nose and up to the circle ring just below the war on the halter and still is long. Overall, I would probably buy again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Snap Too Small The quality of the rope, chain and snap are fine, but the snap should be bigger! The capacity of the opening of the snap makes it difficult to clip onto a halter - the rings fit, but the opening is so small you have to be very precise, which may not be easy with a wiggling head or an unwilling horse. Why make things so hard!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Glitches For me, this lead is exactly what I need. I prefer a very long shank to go over the nose and up their cheek piece, so I love the length of the shank. On the bad side, the lead is extremely short, and the product doesn't seem durable. Shank or lead. However, that being said, it's exactly what I needed. My horse doesn't normally act up, I just needed something to help me handle him while recovering an injury.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lead! I bought this lead about a month ago and it is holding up really well. I was hesitant to buy it after reading many reviews that said the chain was too long. I didn't find that to be the case, and I'm really happy I bought it. I would definitely repurchase this lead. Great color selection too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, lightweight lead I normally don't buy cotton leads as they can tend to be thick & bulky. This one is thin enough for small hands, but durable enough to use on my 2 year old Arab.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Lead Rope This is a nice lead rope with chain. The chain seemed a good length, especially for a cob size horse. The actual lead was shorter then I expected though. However, it did not hinder the functionality of the lead at all. The cotton is soft and spun tight. The end of the rope is taped off to help prolong ravelling. Overall, it is light- weight and a decent quality for not being one of the pricier rope leads with a chain.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the chain length, hate the lead Love the longer chain as I have OTTB's that need reminders now and again and this is wonderful, but the lead itself is dinky. I do love the colors and I figured since it will be only for shows, it should do the job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it I bought this lead about 6 months ago for the occasional day when bad behavior could be expected. The chain was way too long and the rope rather thin but it served it's purpose until the chain actually snapped at one of the links when my horse was being led in and turned his head to see activity behind him. Very poor quality and dangerous to think that the chain snapped that easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice lead with chain Nice lead with chain, very colorful but the chain is super long. Chain could be about 1/2 as long as it. Not super heavy duty but it gets the job done.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loved the color choices, but the chain is so long. I think it would fit around his nose twice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from lead rope with chain This lead rope is cheaply made. I think it's a fair product for the price, but you definitely get what you pay for. The snap is small & is difficult to open & close. It is a great length, & the cotton is soft.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap but not worth it A couple of months into owning this lead the chain broke while bring my horse in. The chain is not as thick as other leads and had started to get some "rust" spots. I would not buy this again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok but not proportioned I loved the color options on this lead line but the chain is way too long. It could be about half the length that it is and still work. Other than that it has held up well.
