    Looking for long dressage reins

    I need longer dressage reins, 60-64" would be ideal. Must be black, 1/2" and leather with stops. High quality soft leather is something I would like too. Does anyone know where I can find reins like this? Jerry's harness shop has them, but for almost $200. I've searched eBay and am not finding much. Hoping to find some around $100. Thanks!

    You'll probably struggle.

    Length is governed by the hide length (usually 60" for bridle butt). They'd need to be made from a back (butt + shoulder) and the problem of finding one of consistent good quality right through is why they're so expensive.

    X-long rubber grip reins are easy - the join's hidden by the grip! You could try looking for sidesaddle reins, but they're usually plain.
