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!

Favorite Features

  • Stainless steel hardware, 5/8" leather
  • Almost 3/4" at the ThinLine part
  • Hook and stud closure.

ThinLine No Slip Reins is rated 4.485294117647059 out of 5 by 68.
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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a long lasting product I have bought two sets of these rains. My first pair of the Thin Line reins lasted me about 2 years. While I didn't think a 2 year life span for $109 reins was great, the comfort and grip of the reins lead me to purchase another pair. However, my second pair lasted me just a little over a year! Now my second pair of reins are so cracked and broken they are giving me blisters. I refuse to spend yet another $100 on reins that will only last me for a year or so.When you first get the reins they are so wonderful. Very soft, allow you to grip even in the rain and through the sweat. But the luxurious texture and grip of these reins will not last long. Not worth the money for this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These Reins I've always had trouble closing my fingers on the reins. I'm much too soft in the elbow and hands, and I'll start the course with reins that are a short, succinct contact and end the course with spaghetti noodles. Not with these reins. Through water, sweat, dirt, and my own light handedness, these reins do NOT slip! Plus, they are super comfortable to hold and don't rip apart whatever gloves I'm wearing.
