This is a pair of plaited trail reins. There is a tail attached to the end so you don’t lose your reins when your horse puts his head down to get a drink of water. The ends are flat braided so that you can adjust them shorter. They are braided from 6 strands of paracord. Please choose your color from the drop down menu.
What makes these reins different? The center is round braided with 2 sets of knots on each side. This lets you easily know if you are holding your reins in the center. You can use the knots as guidelines for turning. Just slide your hand down to a set of knots to complete your turn.
I braid my ends back into the flat braid to make a finished end instead of just a burned end.
The bottom is flat braided and attached with a trigger snap. Also if a horse ever breaks your hardware, you still have your reins. Just attach a new buckle. If you don't like riding with metal attached to your bit you can attach the rein directly to the bit with the Conway buckle.
