Re: [RC] S Hack nosebands - Elizabeth Walker

I got some of the Latex leg wrap stuff - can't remember what you call it.  Wrapped that around the noseband, and then covered the whole thing with a fleece cover.

I went to a sporting good store, and bought one of the tennis racket handle wraps, and put that on my S Hack, over the rope. You can look at the bike handle bar wraps, and golf club wraps too. I had used vet wrap in the past, but it gets gunky with sweat and dirt, and then gets rough and kind of hard, and then rubs the horse. (although cheap to replace, and comes in many colors!)  The wrap I have is smooth, wipes clean with a wet towel, but gives a little cushion, and is much softer than the rope, and fairly inexpensive.
I removed the chin chain completely, and replaces it with a macramé chin strap that I picked up at a local tack store. It ties on, fitting through the small holes. You can find some with a chain section that tie on in many western tack stores, but the all macramé ones are harder to find.
