One of Brute Ropes most innovative and unique products is their adjustable cross-ties. If you cross-tie your horse, you will love these ties. He used to make ties that required people to tell me how high and wide they had to be and then the ties could only be used in a single location. He came up on these by request from a reiner in Oklahoma City. It took about four tries to get them perfected. You can use these in spaces from 4 feet to about 17 feet wide. There are 6 rings on each tie, to allow 12 different width settings. They are quick to set up, solid to use, and adaptable. They are easy to move from one location to another – from your work barn, to the show barn, to wherever you would like to tie. At one show, he went from 18 sets sold the first year, to 80 sets sold the following year. When people use these at horse shows, they are often asked, “where did you get those ties?”
If you notice, a turnbuckle was used on one side to control the tension in the overhead line. That’s what’s nice about these cross-ties – they are very versatile. You have many different ways of hooking them up – whatever you can dream up.
