Whether you are looking for a classic barrel rein, one for roping, or simply pleasure riding; this single ply harness rein will do the job. This is an excellent rein for beginners and professionals alike.
We make our reins with American Tanned, Old World Hermann Oak harness leather. Old World harness leather has a long reputation with cowboy professionals. As this leather ages it gets darker and feels better in the hand. As I build each rein, I cut it from the hide, rub it with saddle soap, Neatsfoot oil, and saddle soap again. This gives it a heavy, pliable feel like it’s already been broke-in.
This rein comes in several sizes but is non adjustable. The reason for this is because I’ve learned that most people never adjust their reins so by eliminating the adjustable feature we can reduce the cost. I recommend you measure a set of reins in your tack room so that you know what size will feel best to you and your horse.
These reins are cut naturally out of a very thick hide of leather. Typically 13+ oz, which is around a 1/4” thick. This seems to be what most people prefer. If you would prefer a lighter weight, please let me know. I’m happy to accommodate.
