Lodge Links ~ Horse Web Sites of Interest 

Here at LodgeRopes we do things a little different, some say we do everything a little different, so in line with this unwritten policy we would like to recommend the following makers of Natural Horsemanship equipment.. Some may ask, why direct potential customers to other online sellers? The answer is simple, each one of these sites offer much more than just ropes & halters.   These selected sites offer the most important requirements for successful Natural Training……………information, experience & knowledge.

Visit the sites of these Halter Makers with confidence  Johnette, now located in Utah, makes hard wearing rope equipment that can be custom made to suit your needs. Check out the  patriotic halter/lead set on her website.  Wonderful custom work that is more like a work of art, but is still tough enough for everyday use around the barn.  If you want a standard halter & lead or would like something really special, visit Johnny's website or email her at .   Linda & Kevin are making Natural Horsemanship equipment in Canada.  For any of our online visitors from Canada, beat the import tariff and buy locally.  We have sold a lot of gear into Canada, thank you very much, but an import tariff seems to be applied have a look at this site before the next snowfall.


Sites of Interest.   John O’leary has established one of the few “must visit” horse sites in Australia.  This website has something for everyone, natural horsemanship, equipment, training, riding, solutions to specific problems and even info on how to build an all weather ménage on the cheap.

 John has the most interesting page explaining natural horsemanship from an experienced  horsemans point of view.
