We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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 69.
    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.

    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice grip poor leather First impression was that these are thick so if you are used to thin leather reins you may not like these. They also have some weight to them but i can still feel my horse well with these. After using them a couple times i realized that yes they did mold to my hands with my body heat and that made them very comfortable for my mildly arthritic hands. The only disappointment i had was in the quality of leather used. I found it very dry and low quality for the price so I gave them a thorough oiling. This helped a lot. In the end i am happy with them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in all this humidity. They felt a little thick at first but that was not an issue once I started riding. If you want a rein you can hold on to with out strength and tension, you should be happy with this purchase.
