This video is a great example of the type of communication control you gain when using the Come-A-Long Rope to achieve the Come-A-Long Hitch.
Take control of your communication and get the results you want from foundation training. The Come-A-Long Rope helps you speak the natural language of the mule and donkey: comfortable, uncomfortable. The Come-A-Long Rope is a triple strand, wax-coated rope that puts the power of the Come-A-Long Hitch in your hands.
IMPORTANT: If you have never worked with the Come-A-Long Rope, we strongly encourage you purchase the Ground Foundation Starting Kit, which includes an accompanying training video where Steve demonstrates HOW to get results with your new training tool.

Will the Come-A-Long Rope fit a mammoth donkey?
Yes, absolutely! The Come-A-Long Rope is not fitted to any particular size. It is completely adjustable to fit any sized animal.
Can the Come-A-Long Rope be used on a horse?
The come-a-long rope can be used by all equine. Always be extremely careful when using on horses horses because they do not embrace against pressure like mules and donkeys do. Horses tend to go to pressure. What happens is the horse can rare or pull back under flight or fright problems. And that can cause a problem with the animal going up in the air and maybe hitting someone with their front legs. I learned this technique from Nick West in Alberta, Canada. He always used it on horses because they rarely have mules to deal with but he would start all his colts with the come-a-long rope. If Nick started to have problems with his horses he would start with the come-a-long rope. Nick West did it for a living and was ranch raised and was a rancher all his life and I’ve learned all of this from him.
As always, a word of caution: You have a chance to be in danger every time you are working around an equine.
