NWNHC slobber straps are American-made from heavy-weight saddle apron leather, stitched for extra strength and hand finished to be soft and supple. They come in three colors to match our braided headstalls and accept a wide variety of mecate rein styles. Straps come as a pair.
These are designed to be long-lasting and tough! Don't settle for the cheap imported stuff.
