Pippen's "Shoot for the Sky" Lead Rope is named for Reins for Rescues' inspirational sponsored rider, Lilly and her horse, Pippen. Their story is detailed below.
The Lead Rope. Such an integral part of your tack, no matter your discipline. Used to manage your horse, pony, donkey, mule, goat or even the dog leash, in a pinch. A work horse. And, you know you need a strong and dependable one, but who says you can't have that and more?
Our lead ropes are hand made with 100% USA made 550 lbs. test paracord and are approximately 7-1/2 feet long. This means the quality you deserve, is hand made right here in the U.S. with each cord having the breaking strength of 550 lbs. and brilliant color to boot! 100% nylon paracord resists dirt - AND if it does get dirty, a simple wash with dish soap and water with an air dry is all you will need to do to return it to it's brilliant color.
Additionally, because of the way our lead ropes are braided, your little "escape artist" will have difficulty untying him/herself - something that slippery cotton lead rope can't prevent. The braid also provides a little give for those times when your best friend gets a little unruly.
All this AND you can have a lead rope that actually MATCHES your tack with the strength you need!
All proceeds from the sale of our products goes directly to the care for our rescues.
NOTE: Please bear in mind that most of our lead ropes are made-to-order and it can take up to 7 days for your order to be shipped.
LILLY & PIPPEN'S STORY:
In 2015, Lilly, an avid horse rider, had a devastating ATV accident. Although Lilly survived the accident, she did loose her right arm. However, Lilly does not let that horrific tragedy or the loss of her arm stop her from her love of riding. Lilly continues to ride, now on her new horse, Pippen, and will start to ride in the para-dressage circuit and compete. You can follow Lilly and Pippen on their journey on their Instagram account, @lilybrhodes. We sincerely wish them only the best!
Reins for Rescues will like to honor Lilly and her determination to not let anything stand in the way of her dreams and would like to encourage everyone to "SHOOT FOR THE SKY" no matter what obstacles are in your way!
