Question Roping Reins... for a Draft?

Can anyone recommend roping reins that are long enough for a draft horse? Or if you are willing to measure yours and give me the length?

I have several roping reins, but they're all way too short for my Clydesdale. I can't stand using my split reins.
Thanks in advance :)

Not sure what roping reins are. Are they connected like English reins? I searched and searched and found a pair of webbed English reins that are extra long so that even if my 18 hd. Gelding puts his head down to eat, I still have plenty of reins to hold on to. I can measure them if you want.

That would be great! I still have the reins from my 18hh TB I uswed to own. They doin't fit my clyde, but they definitely weren't very long on my TB, either.

I would probably look for something 10+ feet long. Though it is unlikely that you will be able to find a set of leather reins that are one solid piece with no stitching or buckles. If you like the marine rope reins like the mecate's are made of, here is a site that has some other length options. I know they do custom lengths for shorter than 9 feet but they might also do a custom order for longer.

Try these websites:

Jeffersequine.com
Horse.com
Chicksaddlery.com

Chicks usually has the lowest prices, but if you order something from Jeffers over $50 you get free shipping.

Found some on ebay that say they are extra long for drafts and draft crosses. Don't know if they are long enough, but here's the link.

Perfect! That's exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks everyone for helping. I was about to buy 8' reins. Glad I didn't

Hi! I have a friend who gets her extra-sized tack at drafttack.com. I haven't visited this website myself but maybe it would be helpful for you!

Shockingly, I found some extremely long ones at our local tack shop... and they're black (perfect) ...and adjustable. Well over 10 feet in length. Now I just need $35. Ouch o_O

I would have them made. There are tons of saddle makers out there that can make a great set. Finding any kind of long reins for these guys can be a pain!
