ThinLine English Reins
Provide your horse with the softest and most secure connection with our specially designed Reins.
Quiet stability of hand-to-bit contact is the key goal of all riders. The challenges of holding a rein can create tension. When the hand is tense, this tension moves from the hand all the way up to the shoulder. Losing a rein in a key moment is something we all wish to avoid. Our rubber grip style reins, wrapped in no-slip ThinLine, allows riders to have a soft, comfortable yet secure grip which translates to an elastic, sure connection to our horse.
While initially developed for riders with arthritis, riders of all levels love the improved elasticity and connection with their horses when riding with ThinLine English reins.
The ThinLine rein is durable and guaranteed to improve communication and confidence with your horse.
Two sizes: Horse (54″) Warmblood (60″)
Bit ends: stud hook and buckle end
Hand stops: with or without
All reins come with martingale stops. If you do not need this, you may remove it.
Rein Care Instructions
Keeping the Non-Slip going strong:
*Wiping down the rein with a baby wipe prior to riding can keep light arena dust from settling and improve the non-slip function.
*Temperature can alter the feel of the reins. The warmer they are, the softer they will be and the more non-slip. Your hand generally provides enough warmth to get the rein to the optimal performance temperature.
*Steer clear of chemicals! Show Sheen and some fly sprays will eventually cause mild stiffening of the edges of the foam. If you are using chemicals please rinse your hands before riding and you will greatly improve the longevity of your reins.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS: We strongly recommend using all-natural ThinLine Cleaners. It’s completely safe for the ThinLine foam, and does an excellent job of cleaning the leather too! Simple dish soap also works and baby wipes are handy for a quick clean up!
Please avoid leather care products; they contain oil which is damaging to ThinLine. While it looks and feels like leather, it is a special, nonslip, pressure distributing foam. For conditioning the leather, we recommend using a paste-like conditioner (like Horseman’s One Step) so that you can control the application, avoiding contact with the ThinLine.
Please be aware that leather care products and chemicals such as Show Sheen and fly spray can cause the foam to harden.
