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.
Flat Nylon Split Reins #DSB3
Description: These split reins have a very soft feel. They are made of brown 1 inch braided nylon. The reins are 8 feet long with 3/4 inch leather poppers at ends. This is a great rein for riding a tall colt in the snaffle, generally one that is 14.2 or taller. Also easy on the hands for all day work.
Hackamore Rein w/Rawhide Braided Ends #CHR5
Description: This is a nice lightweight hackamore rein, easy on the hands and great for loping. This Hackamore Rein with Rawhide Braided Ends is made of 3/8 inch braid on braid nylon rope and is 16 feet in length. There are hand braided rawhide knots and 1/2 inch leather poppers on each end. This also makes an excellent rein for a nice relaxing afternoon ride!
Although the photo shows a tan rein, this hackamore rein is available only in brown.
Nylon Hackamore Rein #CHR3
Description: The Hand Braided Nylon Hackamore Rein lays real well and its shape and feel on the neck get a real good response from the horse. This hackamore rein is made of round 1/2 inch white nylon rope in the center, where it ties to the hackamore. The remainder of the 16 foot length is handbraided 5 plait nylon over the 1/2 inch center for a heavy rein with a real soft feel in the hands. This is an excellent rein for any hackamore you want to use and it will be the best nylon hackamore rein you’ve ever felt, guaranteed. Dennis
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”.
