Braiding rawhide - where to start

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am very interested in learning how to braid rawhide. I have horses and would like to start making bosals, romal reins etc. I have some DVDs and some books already. However, my basic questions are:

Do I have to start out by buying rawhide in a big piece and equipment to cut it immediately?

or

Are there places online I can order a number of strings to play with?

Any help would be appreciated! :)

Hi maketo, there are a few people around who make ready made strings. Go to Facebook & check the Rawhide &/or Rawhide Workers groups. Where are you locsted?

google rawhide lace, there are a few that do make good lace. Tandy sells the bleached rawhide in cut lace, You may find it to work for you. I buy Tandy's natural rawhide sides and cut my own. I use a strander and after stretching use my own made resizer. That's just me.
