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'!).

    Side Reins - Leather is rated 4.16 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Fit I was a bit hesitant about buying these because many of the comments said that they were good for ponies. The fit my 16.3hh OTTB very well, with room to loosen it and tighten it. One of my friends borrowed them for her 14hh pony great as well. My only complaint is that they are brown. I got the elastic ones, and I will be purchasing black donut ring ones because elastic just don't do good with my new horse!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad for the money! For such a cheap price, I honestly had pretty low expectations, but my old side reins finally kicked the bucket and I needed a replacement that wouldn't break the bank. These are made by Tory leather and I was pleasantly surprised by them. They are decent quality, not the best leather, but not cardboard, either (which is honestly what I was expecting for the price). They are kind of long if you have smaller horses, but there is plenty of room to punch holes. Overall these are a good buy!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice product if you have a tiny horse This review is for the elastic version, not the rubber ring version.The leather is very nice. The hardware is good quality, and the elastic is soft without being flimsy or easily breakable. Unfortunately these are made for tiny horses. My horse is a 16.1hh OTTB with an average length everything. Even on the loosest hole, I could barely get them attached. They were SO short. I was stunned as they're advertised as horse sized.If you have a small horse, these are a great buy. If you have anything average or larger sized, these won't work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality I recommend the elastic version. I added clips to make it easier to take on and off. Had to add a few holes as this made them a little too long,

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Overal a very good product, good quality, nice style.The only reason I gave it one less star is the size. These seem to be made for a horse the size of an elephant (jk ;) I wished they had at least poked a few extra holes in it (like 15 extra or so) for my 15 hands TB mare. I could fix it by adding the extra hole so it wasn't a huge deal, just slightly annoying. Especially because when I want to change the setting, I have to add another hole in both reins etc.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for the price I bought these about six months ago.. and I'm so impressed with them. One of my friends got the same ones on dover for twice the price. They work on ponies a drafts, and everything in between. Definitely a buy you will not regret!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Short I was looking forward using these on my mare. But, they are WAYYYY too short for my small TB, who usually uses a cob size. I am not sure how anyone with a larger horse used the elastic ones. Quality seems pretty descent, but unfortunately I have to return them, due to how short they are.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever I use these side reins EVERY time I ride at home. They are fantastic! I am so happy I purchased the ones with the elastic over the rubber ring. Everyone at my barn has the rubber ring and they are wanting to borrow mine all the time. When my horse wants to fight being in a frame at the beginning of my ride the elastic seems to make him fight himself with a slight natural give compared to the rubber ring. These are a great price and would recommend them to everyone I knw, especially since I used to ride with draw reins, which made it much more difficult for me to ride with 2 reins in each hand vs 1. Also the downfall of my draw rein I found sometimes my pressure was more on the draw rein than my regular rein. When this happened, my thoroughbred who is very sensitive to pressure would react immediatly. These side reins have turned him back into the hack winner he always was.
