The Corrector by Len Brown
The Corrector is a cure for saddle bridging, a mismatch between the horse's topline and the saddle's underside, which limits contact to two small points just underneath the saddle's pommel and cantle. The Corrector is made of four curved, molded-plastic shields with holes. The shields - one on each side in front and back - are covered in felt with hook-and-loop fasteners to lock shims (felt layers) into place.

DirectLoop
Each individual 100% nylon thread undergoes DirectLoop's exclusive FPC coating baked-on coating process. This process not only provides vivid, long-lasting color, but also provides a smoother rope finish that resists rubber buildup, grips the saddle horn for a surer dally, adds more weight than a poly blend, and increases the useful life of the rope by up to 30% .

Whether you rope for fun or compete at a professional level, no one likes to miss. Being able to see is a big part of the roping equation and is as important to the beginner as the seasoned veteran. Where a beginner can benefit from greater awareness of the rope's relative position, an older competitor can appreciate that it's easier to 'pick up' - especially when his eyes aren't quite as good as they used to be. The Ropervision system isn't just ropes. It's a system. That works.
