Love love love my Nunn Finer reins. I have them on my every-day bridles as well as my show bridle. My neighbor got a pair and loves them too. You can check on vicrorycanter.com
As for boots, you really have to look for those that will feel comfortable. All mine (except one I got from consignment) are Mt. Horse. Ariat is another nice brand.
