    Colorful Cotton Leads w/ Snap End is rated 3.4714 out of 5 by 70.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice lead I am very happy with this lead. I use a rope halter w/ it and it works very nicely!! Very happy w/ it as it matches her black and pink halter. I use it to hold her while she grazes and trust me she pulls VERY hard when I try to take her away from the grass, so I can tell you this is a durable lead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality cotton lead I wanted some cotton lead ropes that were small enough to be manageable for my young daughter, and these are it. Easy to tie and hold. Work just fine!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for mini horse! I am always on the lookout for short cotton leads for the minis. The hlage diameter cotton 10 foot leads with heavy snaps are just too much with the short horses. These are lightweight and a good length, making them great for the minis. I wouldn't expect them to hold a fullsize horse, though, especially as a tie-rope. For my purposes, they are a good solution. The colors aren't a big plus for me, solid white or navy would be fine. I would prefer a different type of attachment at the snap end, as I don't fully trust the "H" clamps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, handy lead These lead ropes are the best because they are short and narrow, so they are easy to tie and you don't feel tied up when holding them. And they come in great colors!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke with Pressue I hate to leave a bad review, but one of the first times I used this, my horse was a bad boy and, as I threaded this lead through a loose ring to tie him, he backed up, put pressure on it (with me holding the other end) and the rope busted loose from the snap. Not too thrilled that he tried to get away, or that the lead broke! I loved the color of the lead (black and pink!), but I would only use it for leading around the barn/familiar situations or with a "I never behave badly" horse. I won't buy this again unless it's for a dog, but I have read some other reviews that say they would not even use for for a dog! Also, I didn't consider the length when purchasing, but it certainly feels too short. If your horse startled, you wouldn't have much time to react and stay with him without letting go of the lead. I hope SP either markets these for dogs or stops carrying this item.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from worse excuse for a lead ever This is wiithout a doubt the cheapes, most useless thing I have ever ordered for a horse. I have a golden retreiver dog and the hardware on this would not begin to hold HER much less a horse. Would not even last as a mini lead. This has destroyed the comfidence I used to have in Smart Pak. Please save your money.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from unbelievable poor quality..yuck I really CANNOT believe Smart Pak would sell something like this. Someone in quality control is alseep at the desk. This lead isn't even 5 1/2'... the hardware is a joke...the ends are wrapped with a puny piece of electrical tape. The snap isn't even large enough to hold my DOG at bay. Not worth a dime as a lead line. PLEASE SAVE YOUR MONEY. USELESS ITEM IF YOU HAVE A HORSE!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An overall good leadrope These are great leads, cheap in price, but they last for years. I love all the colors as well, a different one for each horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best lead in the barn! I use these leads all the time, they are my favorite. Just throw in the wash when they get dirty, last for quite a few years. Great all around lead rope!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lead I really like this lead rope. The colors are bright and fun. I love that it is shorter, thinner and lighter weight than most lead ropes because you don't have to carry around a handful of heavy rope. It is not really a practical lead rope to tie your horse with just because it is so short but it is great for leading for that reason.
    Date published: 2011-02-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these! It's a very short, very simple lead. It's not much longer than the distance from a 16hh horses chin to the ground which is why I buy them! If the horse gets of the lead, they don't get tangled! Also, its cotton and short so even if they yank on you, you're not getting rope burn! Clasp is good and solid. I had this on a pony who got loose and when they took of they stepped on it a few times and the ends frayed. Oh well. $7. I keep a safety supply on hand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST LEAD EVER I have used this lead on a daily basis and it is great i have TB and i even have a 2yo stud that loves to try to pull and eat his lead and he broke a chain lead but not this I also have small hands and its hard for me to hold the thick leads but no issues with this i am 5'2 and use it on a 17H OTTB and he holds his head as high as he can and i still have alot of lead for him to spook and not take the lead out of my hand i will only buy this lead my first one i got 10 years ago and still in use today

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cool colors, bad design I was very disappointed when I received this lead rope. It was very thin and too short, it hardly looked like it would withstand much use. I ended up returning it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kind of Short I know it says in the description that its 6 feet, but I guess I'm used to a longer lead. Love that the black and hot pink matched her halter, though. Will use it until it wears out.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK for the price not the best leadrope. It works great for my kids and their pony, but not what you want to lead a larger horse.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like these lead ropes, they fit well in my smaller hands, but they are much shorter than other standard leads I have, which suprised me!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Lead Rope The lead ropes are very colorful and seem very sturdy. I prefer my lead ropes a little thicker and longer than these are. But the colors are fun, inexpensive and colorful. They match some rope halters I had very well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kinda Short Lovely rope. Soft and easy on the hands, but a touch too short to tie with.
    Date published: 2010-04-15
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cotton Lead Rope I was somewhat disappointed in this lead rope. It had what looked like masking tape wrapped around the end and up near the snap and I had ALOT of trouble getting it off; in fact I did not even try on the end of the rope. It is really short too (I probably did not read the description well). I like the color combination and I like the feel and thickness of the rope.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lead Rope for the price Pretty colors to choose from & seems durable enough for daily use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from short and sweet This is a typical short cotton lead with a mediocre snap. This is perfect for the well behaved horse that doesn't require a strong lead. This lead is more along the lines of a dog leash than a lead line but I prefer the short length for my plod along 30 year old TB mare.
    Date published: 2010-03-11
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok if you have a...... Love the colors and the price but its way to short to be a horse lead rope . If you have a dead broke to would work great . But for someone who has a spooky or hot headed horse I wouldn't recommend that you buy this lead rope .
    Date published: 2010-01-17
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not impressed This lead rope is cute, my daughter loves pink and lime green, but it looks more like a dog lead to me. The snap is small and doesn't seem very sturdy and the rope is not very substantial. I guess I am used to the thick cotton leads that are easy on the hands.
    Date published: 2010-01-06
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from So-so lead It's very colorful, but it's short and thin and generally doesn't seem very rugged. It seems less substantial than 1/2" x 6', but maybe I'm used to 5/8" rope. It's too thin to work well with the blocker tie ring FWIW. The price is right though.
