Knotted Rope Headstall
The knotted rope headstall is our premier flagship product at Nungar Knots. The headstall is constructed from double braided polyester yachting rope and comes in both 6mm and 8mm diameter rope.
All headstalls are designed with loops below the jaw for easy attachment of a lead rope of your choice. Creating these loops is the all important fiador knot which is mechanically tightened on all genuine Nungar Knots headstalls. This tightening process greatly reduces the risk of the fiador knot becoming loose.
Rope headstalls are light weight but very strong. Nungar Knots unique placement of the nose knots and the softness of the rope allow excellent communication between the trainer and the horse.
Real live horses and old style saddler measurements have been used in setting headstall sizes to ensure the correct fit for each horse. The full size is big to fit a true full size horse
The spliced headstall is constructed from 6mm double braided polyester yachting rope made to the same proportions as the knotted headstall. The entire headstall (with the exception of the fiador knot) is spliced rather than knotted to give a stylish look.
Double braided yachting rope is very strong and generally won’t break with a horse pulling back.
For safety reasons we recommend never leaving a rope headstall on a horse when unattended, especially when in the paddock. If the horse manages to get the headstall caught it may not break and the horse will become stuck.
ALWAYS attach the lead onto BOTH loops of the Fiador Knot to avoid pulling the knot undone.
