Making a rope bridle for a horse requires a 12-foot length of cotton half-inch rope. Loop rope around a horse's head to make a functioning bridle in a pinch with tips from a professional horse trainer in this free video on horse tack.
Hi, I'm Pete Lichau. I'm head trainer of Rose Gate Farm, and today I'm going to help you make a bridle out of a piece of rope. The materials needed for this video are: a horse and at least twelve feet of half-inch rope material. You want to start out with about twelve feet. First what you'll do is measure out approximately six feet of this rope. Next we're going to tie a knot on this end. The remaining of the rope will go over the horse's pole for the crown piece of your bridle. We'll tie a knot on the other end, and as you'll see, you'll have a nice bridle with a set of reigns out of cotton rope. I'm Pete Lichau at Rose Gate Farm, and that's how I make a bridle out of a piece of cotton rope.
