 1 1/2 " X  6' LATIGO LEATHER LATIGO/TIE STRAP


STANDARDS AND PRACTICES: ASMA recommends that leather latigos/tie straps and half-breed latigos should be made from 9/10 oz or heavier premium latigo leather for safety.  Also, it is recommended that no latigos/tie and half-breed straps should be used that are less than 1 1/2" in width, with the exception of a pony saddle that is used on a small pony.  If the pony saddle is to be used on a regular size horse, a standard latigo/tie strap should be used.
