    Here you go, this is how I converted one of my bridles with Chicago screws to the tie ends.

    First thing I did was to make the hole just a tiny bit bigger so that the tie would easily go through.


    Double the tie over and put the ends through the holes toward the horse


    Bring the ends around from either side to the front


    Line them up, and put them through the loop


    Pull the loop tight from the back and then pull the tails tight down through the loop


    Then, you're good to go. It looks neat and clean, holds well, and is easy to undo whenever you need to.

    No such thing, please don't cut, sell and buy shorter or exchange.

    Agreed, if the reins are too long, then you should really sell them and buy a shorter pair or trade them in (if yours are new) for a shorter pair.

    You are riding western, right? Are these split reins? I don't know about anyone else, but I like for the tails of my reins to hang somewhere around the horse's knees. That ensures I've got plenty to ride with my reins slack the way I like and the tails are long enough to stay out of my way.

    The way I see it, if the horse is almost stepping on the ends, then they're the right length LOL.

    Most split reins are either 7 or 8 feet long...but I'm actually searching for a pair of 10 footers right now because I've got a monsterous horse I'm riding and 8 footers are waay too short LOL.
