Blue Roan Ropes and Tack
Why Spend With Us?
Our little business is run from our farm at Halls Creek near Tamworth NSW. My name is Kylie and I am the one behind Blue Roan Ropes and Tack. I work from our farm where we also produce beef cattle (Santa Gertrudis and Speckle Park), sheep (Dorpers) and run a Quarter Horse and Paint Stud (Ky-ean Paint and Quarter Horse Stud) which I have done for over 30 years now.
The biggest thing that we have had to overcome since being on this property was the drought. After it broke we were left with just 19 heifers, 20 of my best mares and fillies,2 geldings and 2 stallions and 11 sheep, this property had previously run over 1500 sheep and 140 head of cattle year round. When it finally rained we were pretty much broken financially, physically and mentally but like so many other faming families who had been in the same situation we started to rebuild cause that’s what us Aussies do right?
For the last 15 or so years I have made rope, leather, braided paracord and mohair horse equipment. Coming from a working horse back ground my two daughters and I always appreciated quality, long lasting, good looking and tough equipment that could not only stand up to the rigors of continual use of every day working horses and competition but could also continue to look good while doing just that.
We make halters, leads, reins, bridles, chin straps, leather bridles, browbands, fly veils and mohair cinches as well as braided tack. Our genuine leather products include knife pouches, wallets, business card holders etc. We use Aussie made rope, leather and mohair where available and only the highest quality components.
Our most recent project has been the launch our own brand of cowgirl inspired jewellery and giftware for our aussie cowgirls under the name of “COWGIRL CANDY”. No matter your taste or budget our hand made leather, cowhide and semi precious stone jewellery has something to offer everyone.
If you have the time please take a look at what we have to offer, all handmade by myself ‘in the creek’. You will always find something unique, truely hand made and all Australian.
We love what we do and hope you do to!
