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'!).

Flat 5/8" Leather Breastplate Draw Reins snap easily onto the breastplate's center ring. Total length measures 14.5'. Havana.

    Leather Breastplate Draw Reins is rated 3.7143 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Long Reins These are really really long. I don't use them really. 80% of the time there is slack and even then they are very long. When they are actually in contact, I have the buckle at my stirrup. Additionally, I really don't have them tight when there is a contact. They are just a little bit of slack and come into contact when the horse gets strong and throws the head or nonsense like that. I ride with them very generously. Most likely they are not meant to be on the breastplate but rather a D ring on the girth.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice draw reins I have been using these draw reins for just a couple of weeks and they have already broken in quite nicely after I soaked them in Hydrophane. They are a good length for me as I clip them to rings on the sides of my girth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good purchase I think the length on these is fine for me. I attach them to the breastplate (not the girth) and they are just a couple of inches longer than my reins when they are shortened up on my OTTB hunter. Good quality, nothing fancy or anything but they seem like they will last a long time (if they aren't stolen at the barn).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from To long The leather is very nice. I like these drew reins but are too long to use on my horse that I ride. She is 16.1hh.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I never really used draw reins much, but just to try it out it made it easier for me to get my horse's head down and make him lighter in the mouth... However, I do keep it loose so he won't get too dependent on it. The reins are very long though, so i have to tie the end in a knot.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good for the price i really like them, they are a good quality are breaking in great, the other reviews said that they were long so i thought i would be okay with these seeing as i dont like to keep my draw reins extremely tight, just enough for my horse to know they are there, but when i put them on my 16.2 mare they were a good 4 inches to short. its not really a issue just makes it a little harder to use. im reselling them to my friend and using my next pay check for the more pricey ones smartpak has. still GREAT quality for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Purchase These draw reins are very nice and a very good leather quality. They seem to be breaking in quickly.My only complaint is that they are a little long but I suppose most are. My trainer has a shorter pair that is a perfect length but I haven't seen anything else like them anywhere. I ride 16-18hh warmblood hunters and these reins are still so long that they'll loop around my boot as I'm riding unless I tie a knot in them. Not really a big deal though because that's easy to do. :-)
