You can make your own for less than $10. Go to Home Depot, Lowe's, or any hardware store. You can pick out what color and size rope you want. They also have the clips to make them into reins.

That's what I'm talkin' bout! I am definitely a woman of resources and money saving.

The reins I was looking at (the $33 ones) were just made of lead rope rope and the adjustable leather pieces are just wide stirrup straps. Or like you said, I can get clips.

I think I'll have to make my own. I can't bring myself to spend $33 or pay for shipping when I can make some for a few bucks.

Funny, you guys just reminded me that years ago my hubby made me a set out of mountain climbing rope. I LOVED those things better than any set I ever bought. And they were purple, lol. Wonder what ever happened to them. Bet they got buried in a box when we moved here. I may just have to go tack box rummaging...

My husband gave me 12feet of our marine line rope. You can buy this stuff pretty much anywhere (we got it at Canadian Tire but I'm sure any hardware store will have it). Then I attached them to the bit with slobber straps. Best thing about marine line - won't mildew, stiffen up, or stretch. Unfortunalty the only thing I found is that it comes in white with blue specks. But I'm sure if you do some shopping you could find any colour you want.

Xilikeggs0, what kind of clips are you refering to, could you post a picture. I made mine with rope and leather strips with the ribbets you can get at TSC. But I'm curious about the clips. I used 10.5' of rope with leather strips to hold the latches on the end of the rope.

I have several pair of 10 foot braided nylon reins I use on Belgian and Percherons.
