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'!).

Why We Love This

Think Rubber Reins, but even better! "What Rubber Reins have always TRIED to do!" ThinLine Reins are web lined and wrapped with the black ThinLine material with top quality European leather ends.
 
These reins are very soft, and increase the feel between horse and rider. Developed with the help of American World Championship team member Betsy Steiner. "The ThinLine reins are fantastic. These reins are very comfortable to hold, and more importantly, they don’t slip. They actually help the rider develop a soft, effective
contact with the horse." -Betsy Steiner

Also tested cross country by upper level event rider Christan Trainor, these reins do not lose their grip when soaked going through water!

Instructions

Instructions for Use:

How to Use:

ThinLine recommends basic ThinLine or Ultra ThinLine pads be used between your saddle and regular saddle pad. Most customers use cotton or wool pads underneath. While you can use ThinLine pads directly on the horses back the lifespan of the pad may be shortened and it voids the warranty. All pads with felt or cotton backing are made to be used alone. Some ThinLine or Ultra ThinLine pads may come with a crease where the pad has been folded to be bagged and shipped. These creases will disappear when warmed to body temperature (1-2 rides). All ThinLine products can be cleaned/washed using the ThinLine Cleaner or the ThinLine Wipes.

ThinLine and Ultra ThinLine:

Can be wiped clean (we like baby wipes), hosed off, soaked, bleached, or even machine washed (some machines may catch tm, so front loader is best) in cold water. Mild soaps and detergents can be used, but please do not put them in the dryer! Hang to dry (which really isn’t necessary either as ThinLine doesn’t absorb water.) What to watch out for: keep your ThinLine away from chemicals such as Show Sheen.

Boots: Just sponge or hose off the inside and they are ready to go! Schooling, Sport, and SMB boots and plain bell boots be also be machine washed, cool temperatures please. For leather boots wipe clean and maintain leather as need. Bell boots and Cobra boots will need to hang ot dry if completely washed or soaked. Bell boots with Sheepskin trim should be gently hand washed or follow the direction on reverse for sheepskin care. ThinLine material should be wiped with soap and water only.

Tack:
The tack is similar to the boots, just wipe or sponge of the lining and use a good leather cleaner/condition to maintain the leather. Wipe Thin Line material only with soap and water.

    ThinLine No Slip Reins is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 72.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful grip and gentle on your fingers! My daughter kept getting blisters and telling me her horse was heavy on the right rein. We added these reins into the program along with more lessons focused on lightening him. Not a single blister since she got these reins.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great weight and flexibility I was worried these might be stiff and heavy the way rubber reins are, but they are far from it! I wanted something heavier and more grippy than lace reins, but easier to let out than webbed reins. I have been riding in these for 6 weeks now and I absolutely love them. I use them on a green horse and they offer a great feel in my hand, they don't slip, but they are also easy to let out when appropriate while still keeping contact with the horse's mouth. I like these so much because they are slightly heavier than lace reins, and almost squishy in my hands. That difference in weight compared to lace reins is just enough to remind me to keep my hands still and moving with the horse's movement. I use them for dressage and jumping. They are pricey, but I think they are worth it. I would highly recommend them for riders looking to improve their hand contact and those working to keep their fingers closed. They have helped me!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good as a snaffle rein in a double bridle I've ridden with this rein for about a month. This is the second rein of this type I am using. It's great as a snaffle rein by itself, and good as a snaffle rein in a double bridle. I used it in a show and got my highest score at I-1--a 66 %. It's easy to identify in a double, which is a big plus. Very soft on the hands, and encourages soft contact.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great soft reins I bought these reins when my mare was running through my hands. She would take rein and rip my hands. These reins are soft on your hands and have excellent grip. I bought a pair for my trainer for Christmas.
    Date published: 2016-12-09
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from odd material and kinda thick these reins were a bit too thick for my liking and I ended up returning them. I like the thinline material that's on my horse's girth but it was a bit bulky for reins. The oddest part was the rough edge of the material where it ended.
