Question About Barrel Reins.

Okey dokey, so I bought a pair of nylon barrel reins today(they are lime and purple and match my new saddle pad! :P).

I noticed that on each end they just have the little buckle things, not the swivel clips that was on my old contest reins.

So, do I have to buy the clips to put on them, or is there someway I can put them on without the clips? I tried to move them around the buckle, but they wouldn't move.

This is my fair pair of barrel/roping reins, because I have always used the single contest reins, and I need help.

Thank ye.

Well You can buy the clips or you can just buckle them onto your bit. :) I prefer to buy swivel clips just for the convience of it.

So, I'm assuming I need to buy clips for these? I haven't really played around with them much though. They are the best brand either, but they were pretty, so I bought them. :P

Those are called Conway Buckles and you can secure them directly to your bit or put on swivels. Either way is correct.

Well thank you! I think my uncle has an extra pair of swivels at his barn, but since I will be using the same bridle I will just buckle them on.

Hehe. But, they are tough, I believe I am going to need a strong man to do it for me. :P

Yes you can use them as is. I can't think what that buckle is called but it has a post in the center. So you undo by pushing up from one side. Remove the lower piece/shorter end. Either put a snap on that or place it on your rein ring. Thread it back thru so it's on the bottom side and press your reins down on the post. It's not hard to do, just takes a bit of thinking. Leave the other as it is so you can refer to it if you get confused. Once you get that side you can do the other.

That worked, and was easier than expected! Thank you.
