Question What Do You Use?

I have always used the braided barrel reins made from the parachute cords but have noticed the few that use braided leather barrel reins.

A friend of mine recently bought a pair of leather reins and I am itching to get me a pair, maybe it really has to do with the classier look of the leather reins but I like them a lot. I also like the way they feel.


Who all uses what and why?

I would love to hear any ones personal pros and cons to both.

They only negative thing I can say about the parachute cord barrel reins is that some that I have had get very slick or very sticky feeling when they get wet with water and/or sweat.

The braided reins, mainly because a few years ago when I switched colors the reins that matched were braided and now I've come to like them the best. Used to I had rope reins like lead rope material that's what my mom prefers. I have a pair of really nice braided reins that I wash on occasion. My reins are flat braided too. My only issue with them is they stretch.

I use braided barrel reins too, mostly because of the color options but also because I find the grip better. (: also the washing option can take them from drab to fabulous.

Braided Barrel Races, just them in training, breaking horses and trail riding.

I am assuming you all are referring to the braided parachute cord reins, not the leather, correct?

I use these from Weaver leather:



They were pretty cheap, and I only barrel race at county fairs, but they work well for me.

I got a pair from them before and they were beautiful! But after a few uses they had faded but they have held up very well and I still use them.
