I found a my reins for about $10. White rope with brown binding near the snap that attaches to the bit. I doubt I could make it for that cheep. But I love custom making my horse stuff. Have you tried ebay?

If she has smaller hands a thick rope may be to much for her to handle. I would try to get rope that isnt stretchy.

I have looked on ebay but I'm always skeptical buying from some stranger across the country. It's also a little overwhelming with all the options. If I can find them for $10, I might not worry about building them, but I will look into make a set though for the fun of it. I think I need a set in my hand to look at before I try to make them.

These are very similar to the ones she uses most often. I think I can make this pretty easy. Parachute chord is pretty easy to come by around here, and those buckles I saw at the feed store this weekend. I've seen a couple others that were a little cheaper, but not in the color she wants. I might be making a trip to the hardware store to look at chord.

Braided Knotted Nylon Barrel Reins

I guess they're called barrel reins, not rope reins. She has used a set of rope reins a couple of times but they are pretty thick and she has a harder time hold them properly. These are pretty thin and seem to be easier for her to hold correctly.

ebay is not bad as long as you check the feedback for the seller (so far I didn't have really bad experience with buying thru ebay). Reins at all our local stores are really expensive (whether english or western). I'd say "build your own" would be the best idea if money are tight. I have pair of rope reins and frankly they look like I could make them myself MUCH cheaper then I paid. :) Good luck!

Barrel reins are used for barrel racing and are usually shorter than roping reins that are used for roping. I thought yo wanted reins made out of rope not reins that are used while roping. The barrel reins may be too short to camfortably ride with for very long.

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.

You're welcome :)
Personally, I like the first or third set the best. I have heard of leather ties like on the second set working loose.
