Latigo on Latigo 5/8″ Reins, Heavy Weight #BLL2
Description: I’ve worked closely with the same tannery for years to find a thicker hide just for these double and stitched reins. Two pieces of heavy (total of 24 oz.) latigo are tightly stitched together to make this rein 3/8” thick. They’re cut 5/8” wide and in your choice of two lengths; 7′ long and 7’9” long (see the dropdown to choose). I make the 7’9″ length for average size horses. The 7′ length works for those who are training the smaller cutting & cow horse colts and for ranch sorters who keep their horses really gathered up through continuous quick turns.
These are a very heavy rein that allows for superb contact with a horse’s face. My heavy weight latigo on latigo double & stitched reins are more pliable than the harness leather on latigo reins #HL58 but they aren’t too heavy or stiff. If properly cared for, they will last many years. Like all of my reins, they are hand edged and rubbed. The attention to detail and craftsmanship of these reins speaks for itself, I guarantee it.

These reins are shown on Nick Fury, ridden by Wade Meador. “These are the best feeling reins I’ve ever used” says Wade. ” They’ve got a lot of weight and they always give me real consistent communication with my horses. The signal response time with any pair of reins is critical and these are the best.” Wade Meador, 2020 NRCHA World’s Greatest Horseman Finalist.
