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!

What Customers Say:


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.

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 78.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too thick These are nice reins, but I didn't expect they would be so thick. The seam picks up dust and horse dander. I guess reins are just something I need to feel in my hands before I buy. I almost returned them, but decided to give them a try. Just not worth it for the price.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great at first - don't last I've had two pair, and am now replacing with something else. They are nice at first, but after a year or so the Thinline material cracks badly. Yes, I only cleaned that part with water. They are way too expensive to only last a year.
    Date published: 2017-10-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these Reins!!! I started riding in these and preparing for the championship class in our local GMO. I can say without a doubt these helped make my horse lighter in my hands. I am considering ordering the XL next as these are a wee bit short for free walk and stretchy trot. They feel great in your hands too. No slipping.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Feel They allow my hands to stay softer. And I like the thickness of the reins.
    Date published: 2017-08-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thin line reins are very nice. These reins are very expensive, twice as much as I usually pay, but, so far, after a couple weeks, I really like them. They are comfortable and make it easier to have a good connection with my horse. The key will be how durable they are as to whether they are a good value.
