Low priced leather reins with rubber lining – is there such a thing?
Just had to share a little Dressage On A Dime tip with you.
Black leather reins, with buckles instead of hook and loop, and a pebbled thin rubber lining. What’s not to love?!
I ordered them knowing full well they might arrive looking sort of askew, or off, or perhaps, well, cheap and crumbly. Instead, they’re looking absolutely scrumptious and have a supple feel!
They’re from Big Dee’s and were only,
wait for it,
The length is just right for me and my horse and I like their medium weight, not thick and clunky like full rubber reins.
We’ll see how they hold up. Will they last for 5 years, or longer, or less? Will the rubber lining crumble and fall off after months of use in extreme heat?
Who knows. Really, at this price, you could pick up 7 of them. I wish I had more! (Leather addicts nodding solemnly.)
Most of us will want to cut off the stoppers for the show ring. Maybe you will, maybe not. So risqué.
