Looking for reins with stops.

I have arthritis in both my hands and sometimes have difficulty gripping the reins. I have found the reins with hand stops very helpful but I can only find them in black. Has anyone seen these reins in brown? Thanks

I am not familiar with reins with hand stops.
I ride with a single English rein with braiding. It works for me, plus I won't lose a rein should it slip from my hand. I don't have the strength in my hands that I did in my younger years. It is dark brown leather.

Thanks for that. I have the braided reins already but I still can't stop the reins from slipping through my hands. I have a young TB that I am jumping and he can get pretty strong at times and I really like the ability to be able to get a grip on the stops if I need them. I appreciate the feedback though.

Have you thought of using non leather reins? Ones you can tie a couple knots into? Or soak the part of the leather rein you want a stop in for 1 minute in warm water, then tie a knot in them and let dry. You could always use a leather punch and add a fancy metal rivet or something to make a stop.

Hey Kitten Val, I looked on the Victory Canter website and found the Nunn Finer leather reins with the stops and they are exactly what I was looking for. Thanks so much for the tip and can't wait to be color co-ordinated again. Thanks for everyone suggestions.
CanadianHorseluvr: I think the idea of using a hole punch and adding a rivet or maybe some bling is great and creative although I am not sure how that would go over in the hunter ring. It would definitely do the job though.
