    My Reeanctor friend has trained several horses and oxen to drive with just his voice. What about retraining that way?

    That sounds great, I need to get rid of my current horse and get a quieter one.
    Which is what I am currently working on.

    I have these reins with a finger loop. All the excess is not draging and if you were to drop them they are still on you finger. These are great reinds by the way.

    That looks like just the ticket!! Are they good quality, worth the $$$?
    I'll order them tonight if you like yours.
    Thank you.

    Yes they are very good quality, soft leather and swivel so your reins are always flat. Celine also is very knowledgeable and I bought a very nice harness from her.

    Wow...$195?! Wouldn't be easier just to learn to hold the lines right and correct instead of paying so much for something?

    Any good quality reins are that price. Hunt and Freedman reins are far more expensive. If your into synthetic and cheap prices then these reins are not for you.

    Not necessarily...they are very nice looking. When I show I use leather lines and when I am working or exercising I use bio-thane lines. I don't particularly care for synthetic and when one has a team of draft horses, everything we use is of good quality and we buy for quality as well.

    So, if you can afford that much for a set of fancy lines with a name brand, hey, all the more power to you.

    I have always dreamed of having a Hunt or Freedman harness.
    Hunt made a pair of thoroughbraces for a chaise I had and they were the most beautiful leather and made with the best craftmanship I had seen.
