Round 3/8″ Nylon Mecate #DMR3
$94.00 – $99.00
Description: This is a nice mecate to use on your 2 rein bosalita or to use at home on any hackamore. The Round 3/8 Inch Nylon Mecate, also called a McCarty, is available in 22 and 24 feet lengths (see dropdown) and is made of round 3/8 inch nylon rope. On average, the 22 foot mecate is built to ride on horses that are under 15 hands while the 24 foot length is built for horses 15 hands and taller. It has a tassel on one end and a popper on the other end. Because of the narrow diameter this is a good rein for smaller hands. The 22 foot mecate comes in tan and the 24 foot comes in brown.
Latigo on Latigo 3/4″ Snaffle Bit Reins #BLL6
Description: At 7 feet long these Latigo on Latigo Double & Stitched 3/4″ Snaffle Bit Reins are made a little shorter to ride your snaffle bit colts with. They’re 3/4 inch wide, approximately 9/32nd of an inch thick and are not too heavy or stiff. Made of premium quality hand picked hides and finished with hand rubbing, oiling and hand rubbing again these will give you the perfect feel.
This will be the best pair of doubled and stitched reins you have ridden your colts in, I guarantee it. Dennis
Round 5/8″ Nylon Mecate #DMR5
Description: If you like a little thicker mecate this is a good one. The Round 5/8 Inch Nylon Mecate is available in 22 and 24 foot lengths (see dropdown) and made of round 5/8 inch braid-on-braid brown nylon rope. On average, the 22 foot mecate, also known as a McCarty, is built to ride on horses that are under 15 hands while the 24 foot length is built for horses 15 hands and taller. This mecate has a tassel at one end and 5/8 inch leather popper at the opposite end. A little wider in diameter than the #DMR3 Mecate. This is a great mecate to use on your hackamores and your snaffle bits. It comes in your choice of brown or tri-color.
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.

Latigo on Latigo 1/2″ Reins, Medium Weight #BLL4
Description: If you’ve got smaller hands and are looking for a double and stitched rein with body and drape but not too much bulk these are a good choice. At your choice of 7 feet or 7 feet 9 inches in length these Medium Weight Latigo on Latigo 1/2 Inch Reins are my best selling double & stitched reins for ladies and youth with small hands. Because they are light, but drape so well when a horse is shown on a really loose rein, these are also a favorite with reiners. 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 disciplines like ranch sorting where horses are shown gathered up through continuous quick turns. Choose the length you prefer in the dropdown.
They are made of a medium weight leather that’s approximately 18 oz. making the reins 9/32nd of an inch thick after I stitch them together. I edge these reins by hand, rub them, oil them and rub them again. This extra hand work adds to their great feel. Every detail I put in their production coupled with the fact I buy only the highest quality hides to make my reins gives you that good even contact with your horses face you’re looking for.
These reins are built to last.
Latigo on Latigo 5/8″ Reins, Medium Weight #BLL1
Description: I cut these doubled and stitched reins 5/8” wide. I make them in two lengths: 7′ for horses under 14.2 hands and 7’9” for horses over 14.2 (see dropdown for choices). These Latigo on Latigo 5/8″ medium weight reins have very good feel and body.
To make these reins I sew 2 pieces of latigo leather together with small, tight stitches. This makes the reins 9/32nd of an inch thick. All of the work is done by hand. I edge these reins by hand, rub them, oil them and rub them again.
How they work: This is my 42nd year making cowboy tack and I know which leather makes the best reins. I personally choose each hide I use to make sure you’ll have good even contact and communication with your horse. There are no gray signals with these reins.
These are my best selling doubled and stitched reins and are a favorite in the show ring. They will hold their flexibility and shape even in cold weather and they are built to last.
Try a pair; it will be the best pair of doubled and stitched reins you have owned, I guarantee it. Dennis
