Alum Tanned Latigo Leather

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for info on Alum Tanned Latigo to use to make into strings to braid Hackamore and Bosal bodies with. I've been told it is quite strong and just would like to get some opinions and mainly sources of sides or as a trial, some pre-cut string. I'd be using 2/32 x 5/32 to build hackamores over rawhide cores with kangaroo buttons. Any help would be appreciated. Brad

Curlyjo,

If you want an inexpensive way to try the alum tan, go pick up some leather boot laces. The majority of them are the dry alum tan.
