The best way to clean your rope bitless bridles or rope halters is actually in the washing machine!
You can also use this method to clean most other types of synthetic tack such as biothane or nylon halters, girths, reins and breastplates.
All you need are some pillowcases with string ties or mesh bags that you generally use for washing delicates in, along with biodegradable washing powder.
To remove serious stains, give them a light rub down with a mix of 4 parts warm water and 1 part eucalyptus oil.
You could also put a few drops of eucalyptus oil into the machine before filling if you have a horse with infectious skin problems, or use the gear on a range of horses. This natural oil has an anti-bacterial and cleansing action.
Regular cleaning will keep your rope tack looking great, smelling sweet and make it last a whole lot longer!

LightRider Bitless bridle improvements include a new noseband to cheekpiece attachment and new chinstrap keepers shown here on the Western bridle.
A new shipment of stock has just arrived so we now have most of theLightRider Bitless Nosebands, English Bitless Bridles, Euro Bitless Bridlesand Stockhorse Bitless bridles people were waiting for.
Cynthia Cooper, designer of the LightRider Bitless Bridle is always making improvements to the bridles. The new stock now has better chinstrap keepers made from the same soft, flexible material as the chinstrap, and the buckle has returned as the favourite form of adjustment.
All new bridles coming into stock now have an updated noseband to cheekpiece attachment the same as the Bitless Noseband design which has proven to be stronger.
The cheek pieces also have additional keepers to hold any excess length tidy when the higher holes are used, except for biothane bridles as the biothane material sits flatter. If anyone needs keepers for cheekpieces or chinstraps please contact us and we will send some free of charge.
