The Fiador Knot - found on Horse Tack and Rope Halters

Fiador knots as found on horse rope halters

One of the most common and most complex appearing knots you will find on horse tack is the fiador. By definition, this is a four strand diamond knot where six of the eight ends loop back into the center of the knot. This allows it to be tied using loops in a single piece of line rather than requiring four separate rope segments. This is extremely useful in horse tack applications because it lets you put a knot and tie loops in a single piece of equiptment. Rope halters almost always have a fiador knot between the bottom of the nose and the loops for attaching your lead rope.
