Well, the reins I was thinking of are made out of rope, just not quite what you showed me, however she's used something like that too. A trip out to the farm is in order now to find out what kind her instructor perfers for her. Remember, I'm new at this. At least I'm not calling them things...I still think I can make a set, or at least try. The size of the rope in the pictures you showed me are better for her hands than the ones she used from time to time. I have more research to do now.
