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'!).

Why We Love This

    Big D Custom Nylon Braided Lead is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice gift I bought this for my mom. It shipped much faster than expected. It is a little pricey, and the snap could be higher quality. A lot of other custom braided leads give you a choice of 3 colors. I only bought this one because it was offered by smartpak.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful lead rope! This lead rope is fantastic. It is long, beautiful, and much more flexible than expected. The colors are vibrant and stay that way even after multiple washings. The only downside is that you can only pick two colors, unlike other sites which let you pick up to three!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicest leadrope! This is an excellent lead rope in many ways- great length, nice feel in your hand, and you can customize to your barn colors. I added a round brass tag with my horse's name to the lead rope so it won't walk away! As always, SmartPak has made me a happy customer!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Purchase The nylon braided rope is strong, yet comfortable to hold in your hands. It washes easily. The snap/bolt is sturdy.I've purchased cotton, twisted lead ropes in the past. The threads wear and unwrap.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from nice at first...but rusts I love the colors and the ability to customize your lead, but the snap rusts very quickly. I have only had the lead for the past few months and I can barley open and close it due to rusting. The lead is never left outside in the rain. My horse is stall boarded. When I hose him off I take of the lead when I was able to. Now I'm not able to remove the lead. My matching Big D halter is having similar problems. I won't be buying anymore Big D products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Lead Rope I have had this lead rope for some time. I use it on my pony with the chain, and it is so much nicer than having to attach and un-attach the stud chain. The colors are nice, but I would have to say that the teal is a little to green for my taste. But that is just my opinion!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lead Rope is nice, but..... Nylon used is not as thick as their older lead rope.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, durable lead Bought this lead for working with my yearling. It is tough and withstands the schooling that comes with teaching young horses. Sharp looking lead that comes highly recommended from me!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality I ordered silver and teal and the teal is more green than it looks on the website but other than that it's great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality The quality is very nice but the cooler patches that show up when picking the colors of the lead rope is not accurate.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from lead i got this led in blue and black with a chain along with a matching halter and i love it, but it did not come with the chain, big d did replace the chain free of shipping

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Value! My barn requires every horse owner to have their halter and lead rope in barn colors. Unfortunately this is not always economical. I am so happy that SmartPak is now carrying the Big D Custom Nylon Braided Lead. You just can not beat the price on this lead. I have never before have I found custom lead for under $30.00! These leads are very durable and mine has already lasted me well over 3 years. I have the lead with the 30” chain and there is not a speck of rust on it.
