One of our most popular products are our waxed nylon reins. Shown here are the 1" width, style #4900 split reins in black. They are perfect for outdoor riding since the wax keeps the nylon from ever shrinking. These reins are made from hollow braid waxed nylon rope that is rolled flat to produce a great feeling 1” rein. They are soft and pliable, not too stiff from over waxing and the hollow braid construction prevents them from curling. The 1” size fits well in most hands and they are weighted for proper balance. These 1” x 7’ (#4900-7) or 1″ x 8′ (#4900-8) reins work great for snaffle bits. They connect to the bit with ¾” wide 10/11 oz burgundy harness leather water loops and have a doubled tear drop shaped 6/7 oz leather popper on the other end of the rein for weight. All leather is edge dyed for a distinctive finish. These reins are also available in 1/2" diameter (our style #4901) and come in white or black only.
1/2" Reins: These reins are made from hollow braid waxed nylon rope in a tighter construction than the 1” reins and then rolled flat to make a nice 1/2″ x 7′ (#4901-7) or 1/2″ x 8’ (#4901-8) rein. They are not too stiff from over waxing and the hollow braid construction prevents them from curling. The ½” fits well in smaller hands and works well for one hand reining, where the rider needs a narrower rein to fit between the fingers. They connect to the bit with 5/8” wide 10/11 oz burgundy harness leather water straps and have a ½” slit braid popper on the other end.
