Overview

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 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 4.3 out of 5 by 86.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing feel!! I bought these reins about 2 months ago and I absolutely love them! They do everything they claim to do! They never slip, but you can give if you want to! I love that a have more to hold in my hand too!
Date published: 2017-05-24
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.
Date published: 2017-04-05
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.
Date published: 2017-03-02
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.
Date published: 2016-09-29
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.
Date published: 2016-08-19
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.
Date published: 2016-08-18
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
Date published: 2016-03-30
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.
Date published: 2016-02-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my hands! My webbed reins were like holding butter knives and were causing so much pain. Love these soft reins that help me feel my ponies mouth. I especially like that there are no rein stops.
Date published: 2016-02-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement. I had some rubber reins - more like the ones with the dots on them - they were great but in over the years in the Texas heat they started to melt. These are a great replacement and I think they should hold up better to the heat, but we will see.
Date published: 2015-10-20
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very comfortable on the hands but thicker than I had hoped. Nicely made
Date published: 2015-08-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thin Line Rubber Reins are WONDERFUL These are great rubber reins. I have a bad habit of letting my reins slip, but not with these! I have been using them to jump. I have not yet ridden with them in the rain, but my friends swear by them.
Date published: 2015-06-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good grip and easy on the older hands. With these reins my contact remains more consistent. There is less resistance from the horse which makes both of us happy. Very good investment!!
Date published: 2015-05-11
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.
Date published: 2015-01-26
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.
Date published: 2015-01-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product These reins mold to your hands so they stay in place much better than other reins.
Date published: 2014-11-11
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.
Date published: 2014-11-03
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!!
Date published: 2014-08-04
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.
Date published: 2014-06-25
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!
Date published: 2014-06-06
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!
Date published: 2014-05-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful for 'grip' issues They look a little 'funny' i.e..thicker than I thought but they don't feel thick in my hands which are small. The 'sponginess' of the material helps me to remember to keep the feel 'alive' and soft.
Date published: 2014-05-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like them, don't love them I do like these, and the weird smushy material is very nice in the hand. I like my leather reins just as well though, and I wish these had markers on them to stop my ornery gelding from slyly pulling them away from me. These do seem very easy to clean and they are very comfortable.
Date published: 2014-04-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for no-slip! I'm not a gadget person - I tend to think if there's an issue, I need to fix it with practice for me or training for my horse. But I had consistently been having difficulty not letting my reins slip longer. I had web reins with hand stops, and if I didn't have a death grip on the reins, they would slide longer until I hit the next stop. I randomly came across a COTH thread talking about how these reins really helped people who were having the same issue I was and decided to at least check them out. I was concerned with how much thicker they are than my old reins, but I decided to give them a try. I'm only one ride in, but I had absolutely no trouble with slipping even without a death grip. An added bonus was that I felt my communication through the bridle was still as clear, but softer. Didn't even notice the thicker material when I was riding, perhaps because it's soft and kinda squishes like memory foam. Seems like they will work out very well.
Date published: 2014-03-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Entirely neutral These are good quality reins and have held up for some time. That said, they just don't do it for me. I don't love how they feel in my hand and with gloves, I don't think they are super grippy. There is nothing wrong with them, but it isn't something I would seek out.
