Mule tape is soft yet extremely strong. Each strand of mule tape is rated for 2500 lbs. Unlike traditional rope halters, mule tape halters are very soft on a horses face and will not rub. They are much less lijely to cause cuts or other damage if your horse sits back while tied. They are best used on a respectful, broke horse as they have now pressure points for correction.
The look and quality of this halter is excellent. The only downfall is that is seems to run a touch small. My quarter horse has an average size head, and it fits snug on him.
