FACTORY SECONDS "California" Dotted Chocolate Harness Slobber Straps
For a limited time only, we are offering our factory seconds up for grabs! This is a great way to purchase your favorite Andrea Equine tack at an even lower price- something even we didn't think was possible! Our factory seconds are tack pieces that we had to exclude from our regular inventory for one reason or another, mostly being cosmetic issues. This could be anything from a tiny scratch to some tool dents in the leather, but all factory second pieces are completely functional.
**By purchasing factory seconds, you acknowledge that you are buying a product that did not meet Andrea Equine quality standards. This means that we cannot guarantee or be responsible for the tack you receive and its quality or durability. If you would like to be eligible for our quality and durability guarantee, you must purchase a regularly stocked item at full price**
These flashy one piece slobber straps from Andrea Equine are a must-have in your tack room. Double stitched with engraved spots and made of butter soft Herman Oak chocolate harness leather, these will provide unbeatable feel and improve your training. From our California collection, these will match our "California" headstall perfectly. Use our slobber straps to connect Andrea Equine loop or mecate reins to the bit. Unlike many other brands, our straps are thick and heavy like the clinician's, which allow them to work properly.
Slobber straps are an amazing and essential tool for refining and softening a horse. They act as a sort of hinge, allowing you to release pressure quicker and pick up softer. They essentially transfer the energy from the rider, to the reins, to the bit, to the mouth, and then to the brain quicker and more efficiently. When you pick up on the reins, the horse will feel a change and know that a cue is coming. The slobber strap, being wider, makes more resistance to the metal ring on the bit, so when the rider picks up the rein, the horse feels a bit more vibration through the bit. And when you drop the reins, or release the pressure, the added weight of the slobber strap makes the rein side and fall immediately back into the "neutral" position, so the horse gets a very noticeable and immediate release. This is a key tool that Andrea uses to get a horse feather soft and light.
