No need to mess around with buckles! Quick hitch leather horse hobbles are extremely easy to put on or take off, even in deep cold, rain or snow, but don't come off on their own. These are Amish-made in the USA of full 1½ wide, double-ply Old World Hermann Oak Harness Leather. They are stitched and riveted for strength. All of the hardware is stainless steel. The edges are rounded and smooth, helping prevent chafing.
