First set of rein chains.

I made my first set of rein chains. Now I just need to get some romal reins to go with them.

Rein chains are simple connectors between a bridle bit and romal reins, they vary in styles, links, swivels, balls, etc.. They send soft signals and vibrations to the horse that can't be achieved with the reins connected directly to the bit. They also protect your romals from getting wet when a horse drinks. They refine signals from the riders hands to the horse. You can see them on this picture of one of my bridle horses.

Gah.. I wish I could get a deal like that on one. I have one just like that bit and I paid 300 for it.. Problem is, around my area, everyone knows they are worth something!
