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'!).

Rubber Rein Stoppers help keep a running martingale from sliding down too far on the reins and getting caught in the bit. Pair. Brown.

    Rubber Rein Stoppers is rated 3.3125 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as bad as the reviews indicate Maybe I feel like these weren't as bad as the ratings indicated because I went in prepared. I threw them in hot water for 5 minutes and grabbed a hoofpick. They were softened (not a ton, but enough) from the hot water, and I managed to crank them on in less than 5 minutes. Works for me!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible quality I was very careful when trying to put these stoppers on my reins, but it still ended in disaster. It took me almost an hour to work the first stopper over the leather keeper on my one rein, and still, the stopper split wide open. The rubber is very rigid and doesn't give enough to allow the hole to stretch over the reins, so it cracks and splits. Very disappointing.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my favorite I bought these when we switched my jumper to a running martaingale. They were stiff and not flexible at all. It took forever to get them on my reins and they ripped in the process. I went out and bought new ones that were flexible and didn't rip when they were put on. We literally hd to use a hoof pick and pull them onto my reins.I would most likely never buy these agin since they were soooooo stiff. They did there job, but they ripped and shouldn't have. I broke 2 of them before I bought new ones.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Haven't used yet I haven't had a chance to put these stoppers on my reins. I have to put them over the hook and eye at the beginning of the rein since mine don't unbuckle. The rubber seems stiff..so i'll try soaking it in warm water before trying to get them on. Sorry I don't have more to say..they were priced cheap so even if i dont' use them i'll hold onto them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stays put! You need to use a crowbar and a well muscled stableboy to get these stoppers on, but they stay all the way up by the bit and don't slide down your reins at all which is always annoying. Worth the purchase!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really hard to get on These have almost no stretch to them and were very difficult to get on the reins. Took me about an hour and a pair of pliers, but their on there and sure aren't moving!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tight! I had read the reviewes that these stoppers were tight, and they were right! IF you can get them on, they are great. I recommend using something to help glide the keepers over the rein. With the help of a friend and two Oster hoof picks, it was much easier. My reins are leather, laced.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Try Buying Another Brand I have now bought several sets of these, and they seem to be very tight and difficult to put on. I even warmed them in hot water before trying to put on my reins, and I ended up breaking 2 of them. At least SmartPak did send a free replacement (yay!), but what a hassle to have to wait another 10 days for one of these! Next time I will try buying from a different vendor - don't know if they're all the same brand or not. If you do buy these, do not force them too hard onto your reins - they will break!
