Anky Leather Reins with Stops
Very nice reins, exactly what I was looking for. Supple and good quality leather.

Good quality and well made. Coordinates with any black bridle. The leather comes well conditioned and no treatment is required for first use.

Anky Reins with Stops--Excellent value
I have to say I was skeptical about the potential quality considering the low price. They are soft as butter, comfortable in my hands with the first two rides. Too early to tell how long they hold up, but I suspect they will.

Very Nice, Could Be Better...
First off, let me say these are very nice reins. I've often gotten compliments on how supple they are. They were ready to use immediately when I bought them last summer, which was nice. (Especially since the darned laced reins on my cheap Gatsby hunter bridle STILL won't soften, but that's another story) And they are very kind on my sensitive hands, even when my GRP decides to be a little pony brat and lean on my hands. I even have occasionally been tempted to ride without gloves while using these reins.
The downsides to these, however, are as follows:
1)The dye leaches out of the UNFINISHED backside of these while cleaning, and I'd hate to see what they'd do to my hands if I rode without gloves in the SoCal summer
2)I haven't used these a lot, and I don't ride very much/very hard, but they are already showing stress marks about halfway in the middle of both reins
3) It would be nice if these came in "pony" length-- my boy doesn't have much neck, and sometimes these wind up stuck under the saddle pad or something.
Whether I would buy them again is debatable. For what you pay, you could get KL Select's Calfskin lined reins. Which is what I'd like to try...

I was pleasantly surprised by the soft, supple, quality leather. I purchased them for their economical price, and found them to be much nicer than expected. Highly recommended.

I like the feel and width of the high quality leather reins. Very satisfied with the purchase. Highly recommend.
