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.

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.
XXXX Harness Leather Split Reins #ASR1
Description: If you like a long heavy harness leather rein, this is the best of the best: 8 + feet long and 5/8 inch wide. Perfect for work, pleasure riding or showing. I understand horses, and I know what it’s like to ride a tall one. Shorter reins just don’t cut it. That’s why I developed the XXXX Rein. They are more than 8 feet long giving plenty of tail for riding taller horses.
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 take some time to break in but will last for years of hard use. Please feel free to call and we will “talk reins”.
Braided Grass Hackamore Rein #CHR1
Description: If you’re looking for a hackamore rein that will really help you get a good turning response from your colts this is a good choice because it’s easy for a horse to feel the texture of this Braided Grass Hackamore Rein on its neck. This, in turn, helps colts understand neck reining cues. This hand braided grass rein is braided with a smooth solid-braid that’s 1 inch wide x 16 feet long. It doesn’t stretch and has been waxed to give it a longer life. Note that this rein can be a little scratchy on your hands.
This is a very useful rein to have when you’re training colts or tuning up older horses because this rein really helps your horses learn to respond to pressure. It’s high quality and will last.
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”.
