In this episode of the NRS Pro Series, we're back at Balds Horsemanship, and Ben takes us through a couple run downs, talks about how he helps set his horse up for the stop, and how he corrects his horse to help him stop straight and square. The Alpaca/Mohair cinch has a unique color pattern with a vintage western style and design.

It is made with 100% pure blend of Mohair and Alpaca fibers for long-lasting softness and comfort. The Classic Alpaca/Mohair Roper Cinch is made with stainless steel hardware and features a custom roller buckle that makes cinching up an easy task.

Rafting, kayaking, tying down dressers, bikes, and so many other things. Still running strong, used for everything under the sun on rafting trips.

I have no doubts or worries when on the highway or bending corners. NRS hit the nail on the head with another quality product here.

It does a nice job of securing my cooler to the paddle board, but has plenty of other uses too. I'll copy and paste a story about how one old NRS strap saved a bunch of film and gear on the set of “The Relevant” when shooting in the frigged and wild Rockies from a river guide on the set. “The water was low, around 4,000 CFS, and I had only kayaked the river before.

I did a quick scout run in my kayak and decided that the upper rapids were reasonable. I said that given the timing (they wanted to shoot natural light at 7 pm) we could get one run in and then would have to hump the boat out of the canyon.

They laughed and said, ‘We have a helicopter, there will be no humping.’ So the riggers set to work on the boat and I re-scouted my lines. There was a large 200-pound camera hanging off the front of the boat and numerous cables and wires weaving their way throughout.

My first thoughts were of the numerous entrapment hazards on the boat and the extra swing weight extending out off the front. We didn’t get a chance to test the rig out before the held shuttled it to our start point below the falls.

Then we jumped into the held with the raft and shuttled back up for a second run. If we flipped, our plan was to attempt to re-flip but bail at the swinging bridge and let the gear do the last rapid solo.

The helicopter pilot said that he’d swing his cable down, and we could clip it on the boat and then he’d drag it to shore. He couldn’t have been more than 100 feet upstream of the swing bridge at this point.

I've personally used these straps for just about everything, to holding down skis, firewood, dry bags, to a giant cedar ho tub, they'll do it all. In the outdoor recreation world, there are lots of choices, typically, and analysis paralysis is a real thing.

Use the thicker ones for frames on rafts, otherwise these 1 inch straps will do the job for just about everything else. I use a 1 footer for keeping high use items (pumps, waterproof boxes) close by and handy on my canoe and kayaks, and longer straps for securing gear.

The 9, 12, and 20 lengths are great for strapping boats on top of the of Subaru. Last forever and the name tag is a nice touch for sorting them out from your buddies after a long haul down the river.

I do like the relatively recent addition of the name tag that is sewn in by the buckle. No more spray-painting the buckles to claim ownership or fighting with your friends on whose strap is whose.

If your bag isn’t secure on your raft then you will be more vulnerable to flipping. Using lightweight pack rafting straps don’t do the trick as well as the NRS which need less adjustment and tuning, which can be tricky to pull off once you're on the water.

Bought these as a kick around for whatever and ended up using them to hang my kayak in my garage from a couple of hooks to free up space. They work great on the raft but can also be used to keep things strapped to your roof or around camp.

I use these primarily for strapping stuff down on my roof rack and keeping it secure. Use them for boating obviously--but they also get used for camping, moving, bike packing and a myriad of other pursuits.

Note: If you are new to the use of these things it will quickly become apparent that it's the shorties that get used the most, at least in a boating scenario (i.e. you'll need a lot more 3's and 4's than you will 15's) Rigging rafts, roof racks, dog leash what ever.

Your picture could indicate that there are nine different lengths available but the “select option” box only shows the 3', 9', & 15'. If you don't carry the other lengths and are simply using NRS's generic picture maybe you could consider offering the others as I, for one, would be interested in some of them.

Below are Billy Cook roping saddles for sale from eBay and HorseSaddleShop. However, you can occasionally find a used Billy Cook roper on HorseSaddleShop.

Originally, Billy Cook (the person) made a line of saddles bearing his name in Greenville, TX. As a result, Longhorn Leather Company acquired the rights to make saddles using the Billy Cook name.

As a result, SIMC/Longhorn has the lawful right to make saddles using the Billy Cook name. There was a pause after the legal proceedings mentioned above, then Billy Cook, the person, relocated his saddlery to Oklahoma and once again resumed making saddles under his own name.

They’re also commonly used for dragging items that need to be moved such as brush, fence posts, and more. Below: A horse leaning back against the weight of a large calf dallied to the saddle horn.

It’s sometimes helpful to understand that there isn’t an industry wide standard for exactly where any saddle rigging should be, including the full or 7/8 position. At worst, it can create, or at least add to, the loss of control of the roped critter.
