Tying Knots - The Double Sheet Bend

Continuing on with my series of knot tying for the Horseman, this post is on the Double Sheet Bend knot, which is used primarily to connect two different diameters of rope, but can also be used to connect pieces of the same diameter rope.

This knot is not only easy but a good knot to know. How many times have you came up with a length of rope just not long enough?


  1. Thanks for doing this site and providing another source. I am interested in purchasing a good saddle on a budget. Can you point me in the right direction?

  2. Can you show me how to tie my horses up on a line as opposed to just keeping them tied to the trailer? I saw a lady at a overnight endurance ride, who had a line between her trailer and a tree which allowed the horse some more freedom I think, but I did not get a chance to see how she tied this arrangement up.

  3. Hello,

    I love your videos. I am a beginner rider who likes to canter but am just learning direct reining and using split reins. How should I hold my hand or hands when cantering? Should I use both hands for more control?

    Thank you ,
