As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these reins! I purchased two sets of these reins for each of my horses to use with their new pelham bits. This is the first review that I have ever written, but I want to assure anyone reading this that these are an amazing value! They are equally as beautiful as the curb reins on my double bridle, which are at least three times the price. They are soft and flexible right out of the package. The leather looks to be good quality. I prefer that they do not have a buckle on the end. I found them more harmonious in my hands as a result . I am thrilled with this purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great curb reins There aren't a ton of choices for curb reins, but the Harwich offering gets the job done at a nice price. The leather is a dark brown color, which matched my Vespucci bridle very well. The leather is good quality, and the 3/8" width is perfect (I ride with the curb between my middle and ring fingers). I anticipate these reins will remain in my tack collection for a long time to come.Note to SmartPak - it would be great if you sold lip straps as well for those of us using Pelhams!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Curb Rein I'll first start by saying that I really disliked riding with a pelham because I didn't like having more than 1 rein in my hand (including bats/crops, curb reins, etc), but this rein has changed my mind.It is nice and thin (without feeling cheap/flimsy) and fits in my hand nicely with my rubber rein. It is a nice color, the leather seems nice- I've only used them less than 5 times. The only thing I'll really need to do is oil them (& my bridle).All-in-all a great purchase, especially for the money- and it's great to get the SmartPerks discount on them too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice leather! I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of leather, nice! They are a tad short but work. It would be nice if there were different lengths to choose from. I have a very large Clydesdale/Thoroughbred cross and need large sizes in most tack accessories. I would buy this brand again!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice reins for the price I think the overall quality of these reins is excellent...dont let the price fool you. This is above average leather, not that Indian stuff. The only reason I returned these to SP was that the reins didnt have a buckle in the middle...they were just stitched together and they wouldnt lay right. If they had the buckle, they would have been a keeper.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I was looking for an inexpensive rein to test on my horse to see if he would be ok with wearing a Pelham. And this perfect. So soft and ready to use right out of the bag. I will continue to use these for a long time. Perfect size, length, width. Beautiful color.Will definitely buy again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Indian leather but useable out of the box These aren't as nice as my english leather curb reins but they are significantly cheaper and have a nice look to the leather. They are a lighter brown color than I had anticipated. Definitely not a dark brown.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality at a fantastic price! I've had these reins over a year and LOVE them. They came out of the bag SUPER soft (softer than some reins I've oiled a ton) and have remained soft with no cracking or pulled stitches whatsoever. They are a beautiful color and a perfect length- long enough for my lengthy necked TB to hack out comfortable "on the buckle" (even though there is no buckle- ha ha), but not too long that I can't shorten them without a rein loop dangling at the foot.Now, I don't use them every day because my horse doesn't always go in a bit that requires a second rein, but when I use them they work wonderfully- small enough to fit comfortably in my hands, but with enough to them that I can really use them when my ex-racer TB doesn't want to slow down after that first gallop out in the field. ;)I would recommend them to anyone- they are sturdy enough for riding out cross-country and beautiful enough to show with.
