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.
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”.
Five Plait Nylon Hackamore Rein #CHR2
Description: This Texas Style 5 plait hackamore rein is made of very tightly braided, 1/4 inch, solid braid nylon rope. It’s 16 feet long with rawhide ring knots at each end. This rope has been heavily waxed to give it more body and stiffness. This is the ideal rein for the horseman who wants a thicker rein in his or her hand with virtually no stretch.
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.
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.

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”.
