We can discuss any customisation or personalisation that you require and commission a bespoke piece of paracord tack.
If you have any questions, or wish to order an item, please contact via email@example.com, Facebook or Instagram
Originally utilised by the US Military in WWII, paracord is now utilised in commercial and personal use.
Unless stated, items are made with 550 paracord (also known as Paracord Type III), with 7 inner strands of nylon, and able to withstand 550lbs of pressure/static weight. When woven or braided, paracord becomes even stronger. It is approximately 4mm in diameter. Paracord is water and damp resistant, and is able to be handwashed with soap. The ends of the cord are burnt to prevent fraying.
Rhythm Beads will be made with Paracord Type I due to the thickness of the cord, approx 1.6mm.
- Wash in high temperatures
- Use bleach or strong chemicals
- Let animals chew the cord
- Use caution around flames; paracord is flammable
- Leave outside for long periods of rain/wet conditions
- Use a gentle detergent or hand/dish soap
- Use baking soda or similar if you have a stubborn stain to scrub
- Dry outside; be mindful that direct/harsh sunlight may cause a loss of colour
- Store in a cool, dry place
- The first time paracord gets wet it can shrink by up to 1/4 inch per strand; it will not shrink again
- Wash with a small amount of citronella or other essential oil; this removes oil/grease, leaves a great scent and can also be used as an insect repellent
What? History and inspiration from Native American designs; traditionally used for protection, luck and to show status or achievement. Traditional materials included feathers, wood and bones; my designs use modern materials but with fun, lightweight charms.
Why? Use in modern equestrianism to calm "spooky" horses who focus on the sounds and rhythm of the beads and bells rather than external factors, keep a consistent gait or warn others of your presence when hacking or endurance riding, listen for changes in gait and stride whilst schooling and jumping and to encourage speed during pony games or barrel racing.
The bells jingle against the beads and make a gentle sound; it is recommended that your horse be desensitised to the product in a safe/familiar environment.
