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'!).

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. Stainless steel hardware, 5/8" leather, almost 3/4" at the ThinLine part, hook and stud closure. 

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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! These reins are wonderful. Soft feel in the hands and allows for a great connection between you and the horses mouth. Well worth the price.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cracking When I first felt these reins I fell in love with them. They were so soft and supple, had great grip, and were pleasantly thick. However, when used in the rain, these reins had no grip, and slid right through my fingers. Sadly, the issues don't end there. Much to my disappointment, after only one year of use, the Thinline material on these reins have started to crack. I am very disappointed in this product and would never buy buy it again. I strongly advise future shoppers to not buy the Thinline reins, however nice they may feel when first seen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Reins for Smaller Hands! I purchased the Thinline reins recently (after borrowing my trainer's for several months). With the extra "grip," I have found it easier to maintain a consistent rein length while riding. There is no inadvertant slipping or loosening. Rein length changes happen only when intended. But, the best thing about these reins is the thinner profile. I have somewhat smaller hands (size 7 in gloves), and these reins fit me perfectly. Thick rubber reins and even regular braided reins can seem cumbersome in comparison. I recommend them to anyone who is looking for for control with less bulk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite reins Rode in these a few times and I can only say WOW. Great feel and communication between horse and ride and the leather is great. My hands never slip with these and they have helped me to become a softer rider!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed My daughter had a pair of these reins and she used them for several years. They broke when a horse stepped on them - understandable. She really liked them so I got her a new pair. While riding with the new ones for maybe the tenth time, the metal piece that holds them around the bit tore out of the leather. Fortunately she was just trotting and on a good horse or this could have ended very badly! I'm afraid to get a new pair now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One word: WOW I literally just got my reins a few minutes ago, and they are so comfy! They are supple and very squishy! Beautiful! I can already tell that I'm going to love them! I bought these to use with my strong jumper who always seems to yank the reins out of my hands on course no matter how tightly I grip them! It seems like these reins will hold up to his antics and help improve my ride and contact. I'm looking forward to putting these reins into use! My advice to you: If you are thinking about buying these reins, do it! You won't be sorry! They are well worth the money because their quality is amazing!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT feel! Oh so comfortable. LOVE these reins. They are so soft and pliable; easy and comfortable to use right out of the box. Feel great in the hand, helping to aid the rider with a light, elastic contact. Absolutely recommend them!

    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...
