About Nungar Knots

Nungar Knots was established August of 1994. The name “Nungar” came from the Nungar Plains near Adaminaby in New South Wales. Unfortunately the exact meaning of Nungar has not been determined but the name stuck and it is now widely recognised. It all started after an introduction into natural horsemanship in the Snowy Mountains region of Australia. At that time it became obvious that there was a need for high quality equine rope tack products, not only in Australia, but also throughout the world. This led to the creation of brand new designs. Although relatively small at the outset, and only operating from the lounge room of a farm house, it soon became clear that there was indeed a worldwide market for Nungar Knots products. The business then quickly outgrew the farmhouse and moved to the manufacturing and packaging premises based in the township of Adaminaby, New South Wales. After several years operating in Adaminaby the business changed hands in April 2013 and moved to the High Country of Victoria. Nungar Knots is now an internationally reputed wholesale business, exporting from Australia to the world's major equine centres including Arabia, Europe and the United Kingdom. The list of countries choosing to use these quality products is growing as quickly as the many horse trainers and owners embracing the benefits of natural horsemanship. Although one of many players in a competitive market, Nungar Knots continues to develop and produce only the very finest rope tack products. The craftsmen at Nungar Knots take pride in every item that they make, ensuring only the highest quality products are sold. There are strict guidelines that must be adhered to in the making of any Nungar Knots product. This level of quality assurance begins with rope selection and follows right through to the careful packaging of each product. Only the highest quality materials are purchased for manufacture. The clips and rings use both stainless steel and cast metal, which are made to a high standard to ensure total product quality. The double braided polyester yachting rope and the budget polypropylene headstall rope are made in Australia, allowing a rigid control on the quality of rope used. Nungar Knots uses only high quality leather for all the poppers in the end of the lead ropes, working lines and reins. Leather of the same high quality is used for the slobber straps and training stick ends.
