Side Reins for long neck

I have a throughbred gelding that has a longer neck. The side reins that my trainer has are too short and cause him to curl, which obviously I do not want.
So my question is where can I find LONG side reins? I prefer ones with a donut too.
Any suggestions or ones that you are happy with?

The ones I got from Dover are almost too for most of my horses.
Dover Saddlery | Dover's Easy-Adjust Side Reins With Elastic.

I got these a few years ago and could not make them work on any of my horses and had to send them back. They were very long.

You might want to measure your trainers when they're set at their longest length, and call some of the tack stores and ask them to do the same. I don't know if Dover will (or can), but I'm sure some of the smaller shops would be more than happy, like Adams Horse Supply or Dutchess Bridle & Saddle (they are a full shop, only listing on their web site some of their main items).

I have the Kincade side reins...and they are nice and long, leather, and have a donut. I think Dover sells them or Stateline. You may be able to get them at Tractor Supply co if you have one.
