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'!).

Traditional flat reins with discrete rubber lining for extra grip. 1/2" or 5/8" x 54". Black.

    Harwich Inside Rubber Reins by SmartPak is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice schooling reins I love the rubber on the inside/leather on the outside. These are supple right out of the bag, look very nice, and are just right in my hand: flexible and not too thick, but grippy enough to prevent slip. My only criticism of these is that the stitching frays a little within a few uses along the seam between the rubber and the leather, so they look a bit messy for the show ring. That said, I love them enough to keep buying them for schooling.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality and affordable Bought a month ago, and am mostly pleased. The leather is quality and smooth, looks very nice and clean. The rubber side is thicker than I expected, but not so much that it feels unpleasant in my hand (I ordered the 5/8 inch width). Gloves with reinforced stress points are a must, I would not recommend using these with bare hands. They do eliminate slip! So hands look quiet and constant readjusting. Only drawback (and I'm being very picky here) is that the edges of the rubber is a little uneven. If you're OCD, this can be fixed by nipping off the uneven bits with fingernail trimmers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice quality The quality is very good for these reins and I like that the rubber is on the inside of the reins only. The chocolate shade of brown matches the Cooks brown bit-less bridle perfectly. I have only used them one time because I have them on the bit less bridle and I am waiting till warm weather and a calm attitude to really give that a go, so I have no idea how they will hold up. They are a little stiff, but I imagine oil will take care of that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality for the price I love how the outside of the reins are leather but the inside is rubber. Looks great in the show ring but doesn't blister my hands and adds a nice extra grip. The leather was extremely supple as soon as I took them out of the box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft out of the box I just received these and the Collegiate inside rubber reins. I am keeping these. They are soft, and softer than the Collegiate reins, out of the box. And have an important detail. It's not shown in the picture but these have a transition piece sewn on to cover where the rubber lining begins and ends (the Collegiate reins are pictured with this but do not have it). I think this is important to keep the rubber where it ends and rubs on the horse's neck from getting gross and wearing the stitching or rubber prematurely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Reins I ordered these reins in 5/8" and I love them. I was surprised to read another reviewer thought they were thin. The 5/8" size is the standard rein size and the rubber is very grippy. I love the leather on the outside which gives a very traditional look.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good inside rubber reins Great price, good product and works real well as the curb rein in a double. Highly recommended.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
