Round Nylon Hackamore Rein #CHR6
Description: This rein has a really good feel in the hands, so nice in fact this is a great rein for long days in the saddle. The Round Nylon Hackamore Rein is made of 5/8 inch braid on braid nylon, 16 feet long, with 5/8 inch leather poppers at each end. This is a high quality rein at a very reasonable price. This rein comes in two color choices: Brown and tri-color.
XX Harness Leather Split Reins #ASR3
Description: This is the biggest selling rein I make. The XX reins are just right for people who ride cutters or cow horses. These reins are hand made from heavy harness leather and are 7 to 7 1/2 feet long and 5/8 inch wide which gives you enough length to pitch your horse the slack when you lay your hand down. These are short enough to ride our little cutters with or ride with contact or tune on your horse when needed and heavy enough to show in.
Crafting: Heavy harness leather bridle reins are very special to me. Every effort is made to give you the best rein you have ever had. I work closely with the tannery to get only the finest dense, tight fibered leather available. I cut the reins in pairs, hand edge, hand rub, oil and hand rub them again for a great feel before I ship them to you. This tight fibered harness leather will last for years. Please feel free to call 817-312-5305 and we will “talk reins”.
Slobber Straps #ZL
Description: Slobber Straps will add extra weight to the bit end of your mecate. This weight causes a quicker release of the pressure on the mouth from the bit when the pull on the reins is released.
These are made of 2 inch x 5 1/2 inch (folded) racetrack harness leather, the most durable leather available. They have been edged, hand rubbed, oiled with Neatsfoot Oil and hand rubbed again. These straps are sold in pairs.
1/2″ 6 Strand Mane-Hair Mecate #DK3
Description: This mecate has been designed with the true hackamore horseman in mind. Six strands of horse mane-hair have been firmly twisted on a horse hair core to 1/2 inch. It will meet the requirements of refined feel for even the most discriminating reinsman. This mecate, sometimes called a McCarty, is 22 feet long. I will be happy to tie this mecate to a bosal if you purchase one but you may need to adjust the number of wraps to fit your horse after you receive it. There are various colors available including sorrels, greys, blacks and whites. Please call for color availability 817-312-5305. If I don’t hear from you, I will choose the color.
How it works: Horse mane-hair mecates are widely used in the California-vaquero tradition, used on both hackamores and snaffle bits. A horse responds to the feel of the horse hair on their neck better than to many other materials. The traditional material and patterns also look exceptionally good on our horses. This is the ultimate horse hair rope.
X Harness Leather Split Reins #ASR4
Description: Not everyone likes heavier reins, so I cut these X reins out of a lighter-weight hide. These reins average 7 to 7 1/2 feet in length, 5/8 of an inch wide. The attention to detail is still here, but offered in a lighter-weight version. These are ideal for ranchers who want to ride with a lighter rein than the XX. On a cold winter day, these reins will still be supple if you’re checking cows in the cold.
Crafting: These are cut in pairs from the best hides, hand edged, hand rubbed, oiled and hand rubbed again for a great feel before the reins are shipped to you. This tight fibered harness leather will last for years of hard use. If you have any questions please feel free to call 817-312-5305 and we will “talk reins”.
Long X Harness Leather Split Reins #ASR5
Description: Cowboys tell me these reins have a great feel to use one-handed riding across the pasture. This is a longer version of the X reins, averaging 7 1/2 to over 8 feet in length and 5/8 inch wide. These reins offer the flexibility of a longer rein without the added weight of the XX, XXX or XXXX reins.
Crafting: These are cut in pairs from the best hides, hand edged, hand rubbed, oiled and hand rubbed again for a great feel before the reins are shipped to you. This tight fibered harness leather will last for years of hard use. These are stamped X on the ends, just like the Dennis Moreland X Reins, the difference is in the length. If you have any questions please feel free to call and we will “talk reins”.
