Rhythm Bead necklaces are intended for
use when riding only.
***DO NOT tie, trailer, stall or
pasture your horse with the necklace on. Attach the alligator clip to the mane
only, not the saddle, saddle pad or breast collar***
Rhythm-n-Beads 'signature' necklace
style rhythm beads
We have designed our necklaces with
safety in mind. The materials we use include crow beads, synthetic para
cord, aligator clip, adjustable sizing toggle and 7 genuine brass/gold or
polished silver chrome plated brass bells for sizes pony through draft for our
* Mini size is also available and comes
with 5 bells.
We've improved the design of our rhythm
beads.....Toggles make adjusting the size of your rhythm beads a breeze!
We only use high quality, single cut,
brass bells available in a natural gold brass finish or silver plated
chromed finish (we do not use the 'tin' bells you usually see)
Our rhythm bead necklaces also come
with a clip to attach the rhythm bead set to your horse's mane, so that when he
lowers his head (to take a drink of water, for example), the beads will not
slip off over his head.
Should the necklace at any time become
caught on an immovable object, the cord will break, freeing your horse.
To always insure safety, DO NOT leave your equine unattended while he is
wearing his rhythm beads.

You may need to take the time to desensitize your horse to Rhythm Beads before
you use them as you would with any new piece of horse tack. You and your horse
will find the sound of the bells to be very comforting.
If your bells get a build up of tarnish due to horse sweat, simply clean with
Brasso cleaner or a jewelry cleaning cloth. When not in use store in a dry
place wrapped in natural cotton. Be sure beads are thoroughly dry before
Avoid the use of fly spray, or use sparingly, in the area of necklace as the
chemicals in it may cause bead and bell discolouration***

Rhythm Beads should fall on the
horse's neck right at what is known as the drive line". This is the
area just in front of the shoulder. The beads should not be loose or
tight; they should be comfortable. They should not hang down on the
horse's chest. They should clear any tack such as a breastcollar or martingale.
Measure, in inches, from in front of
the withers, around the neck and back to the withers. Add approximately one to
two inches to this measurement so that your rhythm beads will hang comfortably
on your horse's neck. *Properly fit rhythm beads should rest just in front of
your horse's shoulder, with only a 1/2-inch to one-inch drape at the center of
After some recent inquiries about how
to introduce rhythm beads to your horse, I thought I would re-post my
"INTRODUCING RHYTHM BEADS "recommendations.
Introducing Your Horse To Rhythm Beads:
Each horse responds differently, and while most horses do accept them almost
immediately and do not require all these introduction step, I still recommend
following them. Be sensible....Introduce as you would any new piece of tack.
First, hold your Rhythm Beads in your
hand, muffling the bells and let your horse explore and sniff the beads. When
your horse relaxes, take the beads away. Next, hold the beads against their
neck, side, or back (whichever they are most comfortable with). Repeat again on
different area of your horse until they stand still and relaxed. When your
horse is completely comfortable, lightly massage them again with the rhythm
beads and let the bells jingle a little. The key is to start off slowly,
allowing the horse to succeed at every step of the introduction. At this point,
put the rhythm beads over your horses; head as you would a bridle and reins,
attaching the clip to the mane so the rhythm beads stay secure. With the beads
on your horse, lead him around at a walk, then spend some time playing in the
arena with some free lunging. For safely, I strongly recommend that you lead
and free lunge at a walk and trot with the Rhythm Beads before riding out!
Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder?
