The snaps are stainless steel with 1/4 inch latigo ties. These are not adjustable and over 7 1/2 feet before snaps are attached. These DM roping reins are guaranteed to be the best you’ve ever felt.
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 Tie String #ZC
The quality of your tie strings is so important since they keep your bridles and reins from coming undone. This 1/4 inch x 16 inch latigo tie string is cut, hand edged, rubbed with saddle soap, waxed, and hand rubbed again to give you the highest quality tie string on the market. These tie strings are sold as singles, get a few to keep in the barn and in the trailer for emergencies!
Latigo on Latigo 3/4″ Reins, Medium Weight #BLL5
Description: These Latigo on Latigo Double and Stitched 3/4 Inch Medium Weight Reins are a favorite among people with good sized hands. They’re cut 7 feet 9 inches long and are 9/32nd of an inch thick after I tightly stitch the 2 pieces of latigo together. These reins are hand rubbed, oiled and hand rubbed again to give them very good feel and body. As is the case with all my latigo on latigo doubled & stitched reins, these will hold their flexibility and shape even in the coldest weather.
This is a very well made pair of reins that you will appreciate every day you use them.
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”.
Harness on Latigo 5/8″ Reins #BLH58
Description: If you’re looking for a very heavy rein with a lot of feel then this harness on latigo double and stitched rein is for you.
Custom cut from harness leather and lined with latigo leather, these reins are 5/8” wide and 7’9” long. The stitching is compressed tightly into the leather. As with all of my reins, these are hand edged, rubbed with saddle soap, oil and saddle soap again to give the leather a tremendous feel in your hands. Trainers tell me they love these reins for their weight and feel. They will last for years.
