These reins are made from 1" hollow-braid waxed nylon rope that has been rolled flat. These fit well in the hand without twisting or curling, and are not overwaxed, so they remain soft and pliable. Easy to keep clean and free of debris, they are ideal for trail riding, and also work great with snaffle bits for long hours of arena training. Available in 7' or 8' lengths and black or white. The braided split reins have 3/4" wide heavy burgundy harness leather water loops for connecting to the bit and doubled teardrop-shaped leather poppers on the other ends of the reins for weight. All leather is edge dyed for an attractive, finished look.
