Mecate rein with a decorative end knot on one end and a tassel on the other end. You choose which end you tie onto the headstall and which end you want as the lead rope end.
The end knot and the knot on the tassel can be made in 2 different patterns, as shown in the pictures. The two knots and the rest of the tassel can be made with 2 colors for the knot pattern to be visible but if you rather want solid-colored details, simply choose the same color for knot + tassel color 1 and 2 in the options above.
There are 2 rope dimensions to choose from, 10 and 14 mm (3/8" and 9/16"), depending on if you prefer a somewhat thinner and lighter mecate rein or a thicker and heavier one. The green rein in the pictures is made out of 10 mm rope and the red one out of 14 mm rope.
