Thanks guys, I'm doing okay. Still have my bruise, but doesn't hurt so bad now.
Thanks Sarahvr, that makes me feel a little better :) I kind of froze up with only one rein and no stirrups. Looking back now I was like "WHY DIDNT I DO X", but hindsight is always 20/20.
I suppose this is just a fluke occurrence, which makes me feel better. I won't seek out rubber reins to buy, but I won't refuse to ride a horse with rubber reins.
I think I will contact the company and ask about it. The only thing that makes me hesitant is that I bought the bridle thinking it didn't come with reins, so the reins ended up being a bonus. I'm not really a fan of rubber reins as they feel too thick to me, but I decided to use them because they matched the bridle. I'll see what the company says about it.
